doesn’t it make sense to actually be apart of said organization if you plan to fashion their wears? this could almost be a form of digital cultural appropriation
if u ask me… looks sus af, but what do i know.
What if an actual nonprofit comes along and wishes to donate 100% to a charitable cause, but an individual already beat them to utilizing the public IP? In this example, the individual could be donating 5% and profiting from the rest - I think this raises a much larger question around profiting from public domain.
Would it make sense for Creators to be required to submit transparent pricing and donation splits whenever they utilize public domain IP for profit?
How about updating the design to be just “Lives Matter”? We find this to be racist, as the term is prefixed with a race. Isn’t “Black Lives Matter”, the logo on the wearables here, the same organization responsible for destruction and terrorizing major cities? Let’s leave the failing politics of the real world out of Decentraland. Thank you for your understanding!
Thanks for you input everyone. @EndRacism unfortunately I think many people will see that as more racist because it tries to take the focus away from the “black” part of it, which is critical to the overall message.
I’m Yemel from the DAO Committee. Your original proposal had two options: 1. Accept, 2. Reject and Refund. The community voted for the second one and the collection was rejected.
At the moment the DAO does not have a policy for refunding rejected collections and you could be the first case. However, if we do it we should do it for all rejected collections as well. Which is an interesting conversation to have and I want to encourage you to put up a new proposal just for this.
The proposal should have a title, summary, motivation, specification, and clear votation options. Feel free to DM me if you need feedback before publishing.
If we issue refunds for rejected collections, some community members might believe the DAO should not make a full refund and subtract the amount required to pay the curation committee services. Please include this as a voting option in the proposal.
