BOOTLEG & FAN ART POLICY
Anime NYC is committed to supporting the best of anime and manga. As such, counterfeit items, bootlegs, knock-offs, or other pirated items are not welcome at Anime NYC. Exhibitors selling counterfeit items may be removed from the event, banned from future editions of Anime NYC, and risk criminal prosecution.
Fan art and fan crafts are allowed as long as the creator is at the booth or table and the work follows our guidelines. We want to celebrate fans of anime and manga and their artistry, and we encourage original prints, crafts, comics, etc, but mass-produced fan works or fan works that use or are based on licensed, copyrighted material (including character art, background art, logos, etc) fall under our bootleg policy and are prohibited.
Do not create buttons, pins, bags, keychains, T-Shirts, etc. with official art or any art that isn’t yours. Don’t trace, copy, or place Photoshop filters over someone else’s work and call it your own. If you display fan art or fan crafts which don’t follow this guide, you may be asked to remove it from display by the Anime NYC team or risk being removed from the show.
It is the responsibility of every exhibitor and artist to follow this policy.
