So, i have been thinking alot about this, and i wondered is texturing an item like the pouch for example, to say something famous, like, my little pony, or a band like three days grace, is that copyright? i have gotten mixed opinions about it, and i don't want to do copyright but i would still like to have fan items, for bands and shows. So i was just wondering.

These things are copyrighted, however... It shouldn't be a problem if you aren't making any money of the items/game or plagiarizing.

It also really depends on the thing you're referencing/adding in. Some companies are absolutely anal about copyright eg. Disney for one.

It generally gets into big no no territory if you use something that's not yours and make money off it.

The server that im working on has no profit what so ever.

the items would probably be refering to bands, i thought about movies games or tv shows as well, the textures would be in photoshop by me like with the text tool and maybe a couple of hand drawn designs, and the item would be an existing item such as a pouch, the server im working on has no profit, nor do i think it ever will, besides maybe commissioning someone to make a map of some sort, but we can do alot of the work ourselves, i just wasn't real sure about it. i'll post an example later

Hasbro and Disney are big no-nos when it comes to anything relating to them / their merch. Sometimes even if you're not making money off it. This includes everything from Transformers to My Little Pony and more direct Lion King references (that is, more direct than IT already is.)

Safest route? Simply don't add copyright content in your server.
