There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

I have no idea what this post was about.
That said, on the topic of Race's box front image:
I recently photographed my box lid, and uploaded the image to Zazzle, hoping to make a nice soft fleece blanket with the RftG box cover as its design.

Awesome birthday gift for my wife, I thought.
She loves the game, and she often has a blanket on her knees when we play games.
Later transpired that Zazzle cancelled my order for fear of possible copyright contravention.
I understand, although its a bit disappointing...

Try Artscow; they have fleece blankets, and seem to have fewer issues with copyrights.

That was a great idea!

Also, for either Artscow or Zazzle - the designer is active on BGG - you could Geekmail him and ask permission. Since it's for your personal use, he might not mind - if anything, it spreads the word about the game to those who see it. That's assuming it's his permission to give and not RGG, I have no idea Although Jay Tummelson of RGG is also active on BGG and likely reachable by Geekmail as well...

(armchair copyright lawyer mode)

Since we're talking artwork, I think the rights belong to the artist, not the game designer or publisher (very easily could be wrong here). I don't even know who the artist is (I assume I could look it up in the rule book) let alone whether they are active on BGG or not.

The artwork was licensed to RGG for use in both the game itself and all derivative products (but with the artists receiving a fee for the art usage in commercial products, for example, in the RFTG app), so RGG is the one to contact if you have licensing questions.

That being said, as long as the usage is *both* personal and non-commercial, I don't believe RGG would have any problem with you reusing a Race image (and such usage is generally covered under "fair use" in many countries). Beyond this, you should contact RGG.

The first reply from Sadistiko gave me the solution I needed. I then deleted both my posts because of personal reasons (specific situation I can't go into right now) and contacted an admin asking them to delete the whole thread before it spirales out of control. Unfortunately they seem to have ignored me completely and I received no reply to my PM.

No offense to anyone. Just get used to this fact - the galaxy is a mysterious and unpredictable place...

Keep calm and play Race for the Galaxy !
