well Im writting a fiction novel and some of my characters and designs assemble to those in AC, for example Ive got 2 hooded dudes that are from the crusades and renaissance respectively, even though the story doesnt assemble to that of AC, only that its a bit about ancestors too. Honestly I created those characters as a tribute to AC and Ubi Montreal. Do you think id have any copyright problems for this? I do not intend to steal others ideas

I'm pretty sure you'll be safe as long as you don't make any money of it. Otherwise, ask for their permission?

It's less legal procedure than getting them mad at you and having them sue you for trademark and copyright infringement.

Best advice, tread lightly and cover yer rear end.

I think that there shouldn't be any problems at all as long as you don't take credit for it, i mean you did it but it was ubisoft idea!
It'll be awesome if you ever finish with it post it in here man, i would love to see that! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

thanks, it really aint that related to AC, only those characters and that my main characters are all time hooded XD, besides taht it doesnt relate at all, but AC was one of my main inspirations for it, would it be enough if I wrote a special thanks section and add ubisoft there for inspiring me? otherwise, how do I ask for their permission or at least leave them clear that I do not intend to steal their ideas? I hope there aint any problem if Im mexican right? I mean, you know the diference of countries between ubi and me. thanks for the help guys!!!
