Quote from ScarthWhy is discussing production of proxies/printing prohibited if it's done for personal use and non-malicious purposes?
Like most people, I like customisation and want to personalise custom decks to use when playing EDH and just for fun with friends.
The reason proxy production and/or printing is prohibited, is that the cards, their templates, art and abilities are all intellectual properties of Wizards of the coast. They have stated that any unauthorised reproduction is an infringement of those IPs.
As a Mtg hobby site, we are required to follow those laws regarding copyright infringement and unaurhorised use of Intellectual property.
Currently, what happens in the thread is a purely creative endeavour. That is why we require the current Wotc copyright and a *NOT FOR SALE* notification to be displayed on all renders.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact any member of the artwork staff to disscuss the matter further.
