    Hey guys, I'm making a map that will have some restaurants as well a convenient store in it, I am making these to scale as well and trying to get down any details I can. So far I have Applebee's, Olive Garden, McDonald's and A Circle K inspired convenient store. I will post some screens soon. If you guys think of anymore restaurants you might want to see in the map please let me know.

      I'd recommend not naming them by the actual names because it's possible for you to get into some copyright issues there.

      I could see that if I was making a profit from it but im not. It should be fine.

        Profit is only one of 4 or 5 things that is taken into account when considering copyright infringement, FYI.

        However, this isn't even an issue of copyright, its an issue of trademark. Whether you're making a profit has even less to do with trademark infringement than with copyright infringement. Just be careful.. worst case will probably be gamebanana not hosting it for you, but any of the companies whose trademarks you use could take legal action against you :/

        right, i know it may be a trademark issue if i misrepresent any of those companies, that is why i am making exact replicas, worst case scenario I have to change the logos and their names to make them similar.

        But thanks for your input. On a side note, does anyone have any other restaurants they would like to see?

          "Infringement may occur when one party, the "infringer", uses a trademark which is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark owned by another party, in relation to products or services which are identical or similar to the products or services which the registration covers."

          Confusion is a major part of trademark law, and in order for confusion to be established there needs to be marketing and a bunch of other things (not to mention the fact that I don't see anyone trying to eat anything.. but I guess one could take a dive at their monitor). Not really seeing a problem.

            I'd say a good portion to be full of stuff, like 3/4ths full, and 1/4th of the top shelves empty.
