Am I responsible if I create a live-updating character of someone, and that character is wearing an inappropriate item?


So this is a very specific circumstance, sorry for the lengthy title. Anyway, in my game, I have live-updating characters (when I say live I mean they refresh every minute so technically not live but you know what I mean). Anyway, let’s say one of the people is wearing something inappropriate such as a bypassed shirt. Since the content is in my game, am I held liable and can I be punished even if it isn’t my fault?


No, you wouldn’t be a fault here. The user wearing the item and the item may be at risk.


Definitely, but the inappropriate item is still in-game, so would it really count?


Why would you be held responsible? Only the user wore the asset itself, and you can provide additional action by banning in-game or something. People wear bad stuff (aw man!) itself in games but the games don’t get deleted or anything for now.

Players might complain, but in terms of punishment only the player wearing the item would get in trouble.
