Hey guys. I've thought about doing a video about this for a long time. Over the years of doing Game Theory, people have had one MAJOR problem with the series - the use of fanart. And since I'm covering the Scott Fan Art Issue as well, I figured what better day than today to address it. I've done my best to set rules in place to keep fanart out of Game Theory but accidents happen and things slip through the cracks. Today I am setting the record straight on Game Theory and fanart. Plus, hopefully giving you fan artists some advice on how to keep your fanart from being stolen.

I love that mat didnt just use this video as a way to excuse the mistake. He is simply explaining what went wrong, and then, he is informing people on how to better protect their work

I mean... you definitely should always sign your art but... also it happens so often where people try to take credit for other people's art for money, for publicity, for the chance to work with companies. Honestly I dont think anybody really sees this as MatPat stealing the art from the creators but it also sucks if they dont get credit because they did work on it

You can’t win against the hater. This is the world we live in, the people who are genuinely kind and just want to be entertainers who make people happy are knocked down because they gain fame in a media where the hater are not. Or sometime hater just hate just because. Keep it up Mat, we fan are here for you.

I wouldn't consider them "haters" It's a legit complaint and problem BUT mat did the mature thing, admitting the mistake and doing his best to correct it.

It's not your fault map at its the fan artist fault for making too close to realistic art without having any Copyright symbol or watermark on it or anything on the art to make sure that if somebody come across the art online that they know that it's fanart not the real thing just a safe tip for fan artist

You’re a smart guy. I’m sure you’ll figure out how to brand it. “It’s a chat. A Chat with MatPat” sounds like a late night talk show where you bring in other NOpost celebs and just discuss theories or whatever with them on the couch. Lol it sounds kind of boring actually.

As an artist let me just say this. It's really not your fault. If you need to do that much reaserch to figure out something is fanart its not your fault. It's clear to me that you are really trying to treat artists with respect. There's fan art out there that looks incredibly real. It can be confusing. There is a difference between intentionally using someone's fanart to gain something, and accidentally using it without giving credit because you couldn't find it or didn't know it was fan art.

He didn't credit the artist. I'd be mad too, but the tweet was an overreaction. You could sell that for actual money. He also made a profit off of it.

If i made fan art and matpat used it without credit i really wouldn't care as i know he is a good person. And i think it would be really cool to be featured in a video anyways! WHY YALL COMPLAINING ABOUT NOT BEING CREDITED, WHY NOT BEING FEATURED IN A POPULAR NOpostR'S VIDEO?!?!?!?

Yeah, my mindset as an artist would be similar to the "older" days, I was still making art then, and I too noticed a difference in my community. I have noticed many times that my dragon ball fanart appears on a cover (my vocabulary is pretty bad...) of a couple of videos, but I only dm them and say that I made that picture and that its cool that its there.

this is just me but if i was an artist and my art was perceived as good enough to be featured on a show like this id be honored i dont even have to agree with the message of the video/series id just be happy at the fact that someone found it so good that theyd put it in a video where tons of people see it everyday

This is a very serious topic, and I totally get it. These two videos have been very interesting and educational, actually. Copyright is yet another thing they should teach at school instead of PE or smth. But honestly, why do people have so much hate? I myself almost never use the dislike button (only when it's horrible clickbait or very very offensive towards anybody, really). Yet even the purest video of kittens playing has like 1K dislikes. Why? What exactly did you not like about these kittens so much, that you put extra effort into clicking the dislike button instead of just moving on with your day? In this instance specifically, why do people hate on MatPat? I enjoy everything he puts out, be it on the fandom I'm in or something completely alien to me. Mario? Don't know a thing about him, but hit me anyway! Batman? Totes yes, what's ma boy been up to? Because it's really not offensive to me in any way that something about the fandom I love is not scientifically accurate, or that there could potentially be darker undertones, or that smb drew parallels between Deadpool and Ernest Hemingway (that's one of my favourite episodes, actually). Why would somebody else taking interest in the thing you like be anything other than awesome? It's just so upsetting seeing this amazing team putting in hours upon hours of research and editing (holy musical Batman, that's a huge amount of pics for just one video!) only to get tons of poorly written accusations of god knows what. Smh. *TL;DR: People who hate on other people for no apparent reason are weird.*

Awwww, don't worry Matpat!! We understand. You never mean to steal anything, it was all just an misunderstanding!! I'm so glad that you respect the rights and the fact that others had created the art, and that you credit them to the best of your ability. But even so, the internet is a vast space. Things slip through the cracks. So try not to stress yourself over this too much, okay? 🤗🤗🥰

Here’s what I go thru. 1. Feel terrible, just let it go. 2. Whoever tells you your bad, exsplain the issue. 3. If they don’t care, tell them to bugger off because now you know, they don’t care. They just want you to feel bad. 4. Either change the vid, say that a mistake occurred, or finally, just say that, hey, a video that gives credit helps the initial creator, and tell everyone who disagrees that they are wrong or just 5. Stop and let it GO

This type of video or series should be called "Theorist Side Chats" harkening back to broadcasts by FDR called "Fire Side Chats". It was during the great depression & before WWII that President Roosevelt used a burgeoning medium called radio to communicate with the masses. I'm not trying to compare you to FDR or anything of the sort. That said, you are using this new fangled technology called the interwebs to talk directly to the community in the hopes of providing a peak behind the curtain and to be as transparent as possible... MatPat, now that I think about it, have you ever thought about running for office. I think it might be a good fit for you. Give it some thought...

Some times, guys who are getting mad about this stuff, it can be REALLY hard to tell the difference between a fan work, and official work. I don't think it's fair to say that anyone is stealing these fan works in this case, as much as simply not realizing they are fan-made. Get of your holier-than-thou high horses. I guarantee you are not perfect, flawless beings. I can't tell you how many times I've come across fan works I thought were official material only to find they were fan works years later, or even official material that I thought was a fan work, only to find out it was official but done by a different artist. Unless these things are clearly tagged and marked (usually in the image itself), it can be almost impossible to sort them out.

As an artist I do not blame you for older content and the fact that you made this video taking accountability is good. A lot of artists, especially artists that are drawing fanart, are independent, and can't stand up for themselves much. There's people in the comments victim blaming when it's really not the victim's fault. I myself forget to watermark or sign my own work a lot of the time, something I wanna get better at. But just because an artist forgot doesn't mean they shouldn't be credited.
