I am recreating the City of Philadelphia on ROBLOX. I am currently creating the South Philadelphia Sports Complex, it is full of many brand-name stadiums such as the Wells Fargo Center, and Lincoln Financial Field. These are copyrighted names owned by real-life corporations. Additionally, I want to implement some sort of usability into these stadiums. This means introducing Philadelphia-style teams like the NFL’s Eagles, NHL’s Flyers, and NBA’s 76’ers.
My question is simple, should I introduce parody names for every corporation I wish to include to avoid a copyright claim, or do you think they’re free to use since it is a recreational game. Eventually I will add developer products to ‘profit’ off the game. What is ROBLOX’s stance on this? There are plenty of games and groups modeled after real-life corporations and plenty of shirts on sale that use copyrighted branding.
