Personal Copyrights For LBP Creations
You know, stealing is a crime. How would you feel if your very special LittleBigCreation in LittleBigPlanet got picked up by just about everyone, and they were using it however they pleased without your consent? No no, none of that.
According to what Media Molecule's Alex Evans told Eurogamer, players will be able to "dictate the distribution rights on any object you create" in the promising, cooperative-based platformer. This means that just because you upload your painstakingly-created invention doesn't mean any goofball can take it and bat it around like a drunk kitten with a Catnip-encrusted ball of yarn. Here's the evidence in Evans' own words:
"You can basically dictate the distribution rights on any object you create. If you put something in your level as a collectable item, people can collect it. People can control who comes into the level, both by how hard it is and by giving away keys, but you can also choose whether to copyright that object."
Now, if the item doesn't hold a copyright, it can be tossed around like crazy, well out of sight of the owner. However, if you slap a copyright on there, it must "remain within the confines of the user's level." See, those guys at Media Molecule are always thinkin'. Is there any base the team hasn't covered in regards to this game?
