2012 the ending of and age and beginning of a new one?

My dear fans and followers I have been linked this...

http://www.p4rgaming.com/?p=539

While I haven't investigated enough, to find out whether this is just some internet troll or joke, the sheer magnitude of this is enough for me to make a journal about it.

In the past Sonic porn was seen as an obscure aspect of the internet.  Something to laugh at, and the fun was in the fact that it was just a parody.  Needless to say I began drawing Sonic porn as a young kid.  It was my favorite character, and I was experimenting with something new in life.  As the years passed I kept drawing to myself until 2007 when I decided I'd take my art to the internet and share it with everyone.  For years I'd notice how Sonic Porn artists where regarded as the lowest echelon of the erotic fanart community.  Something I particularly did not mind at all.

Then this happens, has the world financial crisis lead to this, or is the world beginning to change it's mentality if only slightly.  Will this signal the beginning of a new age where high profile companies ignore the blabbering moral retards and embrace a market for the adult interpretation or their characters?  If this is now, what does the future hold?  Will this bring a new age to artists and writers or fanart/fanfiction?  Maybe not, but maybe, perhaps, It might, and the world as we knew it really did end in 2012... and 2013+ realy is a new age.

It doesn't matter if they gave credit, they're being told to give over the rights of their work.  Not just the characters.

While it would be an interesting development indeed, after a bit more research the linked blog is the only reference that I seem to find. And quite honestly his simple reference to the question of source stated as simply SEGA give me great doubt that it is anything more then an intertroll being a dick. If he had an actual source he would have given more detail about the source ro there wuold be verifiable evidence to this being fact to atleast some degree.

Don't get your hopes up to much guys and gals. While I would love it to be true there just isn't at this time any supporting evidence to this guys claim. And honestly after taking a closer look at his entire site, I have seriouse reservations about his so called sources and information.

Just my 2 cents worth, take it for what it be.

Looks like this is the appropriate place to put this observation.
" We can not afford to shun any type of revenue no matter how bad this may look upon the company. We would rather survive and be called every name in the book than die without a fight.


"We will put money above traditional values. We would rather survive in disgrace than die with our honor intact."

This alone sends up a red flag, Japanese companies still revolve around 'face'/honor, which is why the public shareholder meetings are all held on one day for all public companies, and they are so fast they are called 'clap-clap' meetings (you clap the speaker on stage, then you clap him off right away).  This is done to make it harder for dissenting groups to 'disrupt' and 'vandalize' the meeting.  It is a great dishonor to have your meeting disrupted.

Sega.....in the porn business?
Sega has announced they are selling officially licensed Sonic porn.

Must be a joke.

Still, if they made Sonic porn, I'd like to see it ;)
SenGrisane
5 years, 11 months ago
Now they just need to make a porno game as well XD

And by the way. If you google inkbunny it tries to complete the search by suggesting a certain user who has made a certain very popular game starring Cream and Sonic ;3

Too bad it is probably a hoax ^^
Hospoguy76

It would have to be a fake as said 'lack of source' leads to lack of evidence. Also I hardly believe a company such as SEGA would just screw over artist that have been making Sonic Porn and expect fans to allow such artist to be subjected to having to pay credit on their hard work simply because SEGA's characters are depicted in such material.

Whilst their case of using their characters without permission is a viable lawsuit they would only likely win a case where material was actually being sold for profit then subsequently they would be entitled to a significant percentage of the artists work.
Whereas where an artist has been using characters in a hobby form and sharing in a forum then said artist would merely have to pay credit to SEGA for the characters and not the actions or environments they are depicted in.
In both cases however a case could be called forth for copyright infrigenment laws being breached, though it would probably be a poor case as technically the copyright law on Sonic are outdated and most likely don't stipulate to how characters could be drawn or sketched in a world of today and with its technology.

I would say until Aval0nX and his fellow artists are contacted by SEGA themselves, they should just continue doing the projects and hobby drawing the enjoy and love and which bring us their fans such joy.

Right, cause you know, Nintendo will totally license Mario porn too. No, this is definitely just some dude there talking out of his back end to rustle some jimmies.

It's a sad day when something that is fan-made is now being licensed.  What the hell are they thinking?  Is it now considering to be a profession to create pornographic materials based on copyrighted characters?  If so, then I already have a job.  Would it be sane to add that to my resume?

If Sega were actually doing this, it would appear somewhere on Sega's page. What you saw is almost undoubtedly somebody's idea of a joke. The sort of thing I'd expect to see in the The Onion.

no source link, no screenshots of said article. to someone who actually researches their work, this "news" is just another troll, and is unfounded. I researched the sega site and saw nothing even close to this in the news feed, corporate part, or any other section of sega's website.

I don't think that's real. I did some checking around on Google and they're the only website that talks about it. Did you notice that they don't even link to their source(s)?

But who knows, I think everyone is too up-tight about sex overall anyways, maybe things will loosen up. =)

Yeah, I wouldn't believe a story like this unless it showed up on a major news network, or the daily show/colbert report. (although, with the last two it could always be them making a joke of something else)
SurferOtter

Sounds fake to me.

i do not think a well known game company would open the doors to the worlds views on porno and the world negative views with it.
they could lose the profit of games and lose reputation and this all depends on supply and demand.

This is bound to be fake.
keradi01

Regardless of the legitimacy behind it, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Sega did decide on doing such a move. The pornography industry is a proven success and Sonic porn is extraordinarily widespread (I've don't think I've seen any single series have so much parody porn drawn or written as Sonic).

While an attempt to license SonicR34 (TM) would cause a backlash from Soccermoms and such, it could prove to be a very profitable industry for them and let's be honest, the Sonic fanbase might never agree on anything, but I doubt Sega would lose much of 'em if they make such a move. Sure some may complain or throw death threats, but there will still be plenty of people willing to buy Sonic games and there will be those who will buy Sonic porn.

tl;dr'd it, but it's likely the copyright owners trying to cover all their bases, so no one can move in on their titled character.

This reminds me of a series of dreams I've been having for about a decade where SEGA officially made Sonic the Hedgehog pornographic videogames. I have thought this to be nothing but a pipe dream but with this news, I want to believe that you'll start seeing AO StH games rolling around the stores. This also harkens back to an argument I've had with many friends about how Sonic should be allowed to grow up and become a little bit more like the Archie Series version. BRING IT ON!!!

Heh.  Some of these are funny, in a The Onion sort of way.

"Kotaku Australia Regrets Licensing Kotaku Name"
"Atlus Recalls All Persona Games After 26 Children Die Attempting to Summon Their Persona"
"Peter Molyneux Breaks Down Into Tears Again After Realizing He Can No Longer Make Good Games"
"Dreamcast Creators Throw Party After Hearing Vita Selling Worse than Dreamcast"
"Thousands of Gamers Cancel Wii U Pre-Orders After Nintendo Announces No Achievements System"

But undoubtedly your story is real, so you'd best get back to slaving away at your sonic fap game while it won't land you in copyrite hell.

I'd like to share my thoughts on this

1. Rouge should fit right in.

2. This is a good opportunity for you to make some real cash with your BSC project.

3. It's sad to see that sonic has fell so far that his only reliable source of income is now sucking dick on camera.

If this is true, then Im glad that SEGA are finally replying to the demands of the true adult fans who made the Sonic Franchise what is is today. I'd definately support their cause. They should do some OVA hentai too. That would fuckin rock my balls and cock off! As well as others....Make's you wonder if SEGA will include the Archie/ SATAM characters too like Sally, Bunnie and Fiona, thus renewing the reason the Sonic franchise is bigger than that of Mario.

Since it said that Sega is trying to "get a piece of the pie" I don't think Aval0nX has anything to worry about because he has already said that he is doing BSC as a hobby and not for profit. So Aval0nX just keep doing what you're doing and ignore the others, because I think they are just pulling your chain to try to get you worried about nothing, besides they would never be able to enforce any kind of license for thier toons because of some international laws that don't apply in some forein countries.

Ok, so this is definitely bull, but to be fair, Japanese culture is very different from American culture.  There are a lot of non-sanctioned  dojins on store shelves because the perception of intellectual properly and harming the brand isn't as bad as it is here.  At least, it wasn't 5-10 years ago.  So with that in mind, I could imagine some licensed sonic porn in some way.  It just wouldn't bring about the significant revenue that other sources might, like Pachinko/slot machines or other venues.  Games too, I suppose.

If I understand things correctly the only way they can sue anyone is if the ones that are making Sonic Porn is if they make it for profit!

Before I looked at some of the other "stories" on that site, I allowed myself some suspension of disbelief for a moment. Remembering that truth is stupider than fiction, and considering what other companies like Sanrio have allowed with their licensed characters (Badtz-Maru condoms, Hello Kitty "massagers", etcetera).
oopsmybad

im gonna call it as fake. if it were real there would be some kind of link in the article. or you would be able to find it really easy on the sega site. since neither is true. its fake

Legally? This can't actually be enforced even if it is real. If it could, fan-art in general would have already been subjugated and lost to the deeper and darker parts of the internet.

5 years, 11 months ago
Are you serious? Not about the article. Look at the other articles the site has. It's a humor site; none of it's real. Their writing is funny as hell, though, but it's still just made up. On the front page they're running stories about the persona games being pulled because children died trying to summon their own personas, suicide threats made by employees of Rare in response to having to work on Kinect sports, and my favorite, "Madden NFL 14 Requires Players to Watch 2 Hour Documentary on Football Concussions Before Playing."

They're just having fun, poking fun at the video game industry and the behaviors of businesses and the public. You're meant to laugh, I sure as hell did (especially at the Rare Kinect story).

"despite the many mistakes made with the video game series"

This line makes me feel like this is fake. I've read a lot of interviews from Sega and Sonic Team and I can't recall them ever claiming they've "made mistakes" with the series. They're aware that some of their games were less well-received than others but they still feel that their games were well worth the development. This just sounds like a typical "Sonic games suck" person trying to make this sound as professional and official as possible.

Still, even if this is real, it won't really change much, other than the fact that Sega may put up a copyright specifically for "Sonic porn" in an effort to stop people from doing it themselves (not that such a thing would work) so Sega can make money off it.

5 years, 11 months ago
Well as long as your game and art are free it wont really affect you. It says that they want a piece of the pie cause people are making money of sonic porn but you are not. People donate money to you but you do not charge to play the game so you won't get in trouble as long as your artwork remains free.
lltnkwater
5 years, 11 months ago
as much as the thought of any major company embracing the adult market is welcome to me, that article is fake... i bear no proof, but the way japanese companies are, especially concerning their public face, and the content of that 'official statement' just don't mix... there are other signs as well but for me that is the clearest indicator of it being false.

"In an announcement related to their video game ventures, Sega has announced targeting artists and writers who have abused the Sonic trademark for erotic works and offering leniency if they transfer the rights to the work towards Sega."
I'm not that up on law, but I'm pretty sure the most they can do is warn you to take your stuff down. If you don't, THEN they can sue you.

EDIT: Reading the other articles by this guy is a huge tip-off that he's full of shit. According to him, "In Austin, Texas, 26 children died after attempting to summon their Personas with guns." Yeah. Another article is titled "Rare Employees Send Microsoft Suicide Threats After Being Forced to Work On Kinect Sports."

Possible but not likely as Sega "officalizing" sonic porn is like Nintendo saying the next Zelda will be borrowing from game of thrones in tone and content.

It also seems that the sites comments seem to think this is a joke

the way i see it. you have three options.a-submit to sega control, b-retire from bsc, or c-stop directly asking for donations connected to work on bsc so they cant claim your profiting from their material. i like option c but its your life and your gonna have to do what ya gotta do. if you go down the second route then i offer my sincerest thanks for the work that you have already finished and i wish you luck in your future endeavors. if you go with option a or b then imma still follow you like a fat kid chasing a man with candy.
Aval0nX
5 years, 11 months ago
A- would be interesting to work for Sega (IF the article where real which everyone agrees is't NOT)

B- Fuck you, BSC is not something you retire from, It's like telling Stan Lee to "retire" from Marvel comics (guess what, he sold Marvel to Disney, but he's still the father of Marvel) so just fuck you.  You sound a little like Killahanna.

C- Not necessary, the shift is I ask for donations if they support my work, since I don't directly do comission work like some artists, donations are just that, people giving me money because they appreciate my work and would like to continue seeing more of it, whether I receive them or not (which has been the case for a while) I'm not gonna leave, I love it here.

im sorry. i didnt mean to offend you. i was just trying to put it the way i would see it if i were in your position and ive heard of people in another fan community (mechwarrior) who have done just what your doing and they had some legal threats and had to shut down. i only wanted to help.
JayFight
5 years, 11 months ago
actually i just looked at that sites main page and read some of the headlines for other articles like "ZombiU Patch Adds More Ammo, Lives, and Makes Zombies Easier to Kill" or "BioShock Infinite’s Original Cover With Elizabeth’s Breasts Much Worse Says Ken Levine" and "EA Marketing Team Announces New Strategy, Day -1 DLC for Dead Space 3"(Like a company would be stupid to release DLC for a game the day before anyone could play it.....but then again it is EA)

so yeah it's not a really gaming news site, so good news you don't have to worry about sega sueing you over BSC, also bad news, it looks like they won't hire you to make more games like BSC

ps i've been following you since furafinity and i have loved your work, thank you
