Do I still own the rights to my fan art?

When you create something original and upload it to Redbubble, you own your creation. That's always been the case on Redbubble, but fan art can be different. That's because your fan art is based on someone else's intellectual property, which they own. So, you'd need their permission to do certain things, like selling it... anywhere, even on Redbubble.

When your fan art is approved, it means that the owner of the underlying intellectual property is part of the Redbubble partnership program, and has permitted you to use its intellectual property in this particular work and sell it on Redbubble. In exchange for their permission to use their IP, the rights holder may require you to give up certain of your rights in the work. Every partner is different, however, so please check out each brands’ specific guidelines and requirements before you start creating. It's important to understand that the partner's permission does not extend to selling the artwork anywhere else. The partner’s permission applies only to Redbubble.

It often works both ways, though. Approved fan artwork may contain your original creation too, so in many cases, the partner also can't sell the fan artwork without your permission. The terms of every partnership are different, so please check out each brands’ specific guidelines and requirements before you start creating.
