    Sorry,
    what I meant to say was that I would make my own weapons, just like the borderlands games (they make their own guns, but im not making them look similar just the method)

    I agree. You should make enough alterations to your weapons that they no longer resemble the original enough to be required to pay royalties / license fees. I would also recommend using your own weapon names.

    What about fighter jets like the f-16, f-22, A-10, Su-47?

    No what I'm saying is DICE themselves didn't pay money to the gun manufacturers for using their names/models, and I plan to create my own models.

    What if I just change the look but keep the look relatively the same?
    What sort of thresholds are there because I heard DICE is no longer paying for the guns in their battlefield games any longer.

    Copyrights concerning guns.

    Hi,
    I have a question, say I wanted to use for example a heckler and Koch MP5 and I used that name and gun model specifically in my game and sold it commercially (as a hobby, so not a big scale). Would I encounter any copyright issues?
    Thanks,
Working...
