I am trying to figure out if I can use the icons and other images in the FFB client in my own software project without running into copyright issues. Who is the copyright holder of the artwork?

If I can't use the ones in the FFB client, are there any other icon packs, pitches etc. that are freely available to use?

My project is btw. non-commercial and open source.
Any help is appreciated.

stealing IP is considered rude.

I totally agree. That's why I am asking Smile

I would like to use graphics that I have permission to use.

Online Blood Bowl League Manager uses FUMBBL icons, I presume they got the OK first.

If I've understood this correctly, that would be the site owner, Christer.

OBBLM was granted explicit permission.

I am not the copyright holder for artwork and images. They are used by FUMBBL by a non-revokable perpetual license allowing FUMBBL to use them for any purpose (including merchandising).

I do not have or want to own the copyright directly, and leave that to the respective artist.

I actually started the OBBLM project together with Nicholas but I didn't know this.

Can you help me get in contact with the artists?

If it is the exact icon of the human team - then I am not the one to talk to. But I have done a few random icons of my own. It's fairly easy to do (depending on how detailed you want them). If you wan't I may be able to make something new for you, after this weekend. PM if it is of any interest

I'll be happy to see what you can do. I have a deadline around the 27th Smile
