Damn, did not know a design this trivial in nature can be protected. They’re not marked as registered logos in images, hence me thinking they’d be okay, and they had already removed all verbal mentions of FFXIV, Square-Enix and the job names and so on.

Shame, the necklaces were super pretty, I was looking at getting an Astro one, pricy as they are.

In case the status changes, here’s what the page looks like right now:

    I mean, yeah. you can’t just take things from games even if they’re “small” and try to sell them.

      Literally everything in the game is copyrighted, whoever thought this would fly doesn’t understand how game companies protect their IP
