I'm not sure if this is the correct exchange to ask but hopefully it is.
Now if I want to acquire Digimon franchise copyright (Correct the term for me if I'm mistaken) for example for my Smartphone apps or Art.
Now what I know is if I want to make iMessage Sticker app on iOS for Digimon for example, I can get an artist who can draw the Digimons, but if I uploaded that app on App Store with Digimon name will be rejected without copyrights.
So I searched for who own Digimon Franchise on the web and actually it was a bit complex, I found that Bandai has the right to create Games, Toei animations has the right to create Anime, and I found also that Saban Brands bought Digimon Franchise a while ago, then Walt Disney acquired Saban Brands.
- Who is the responsible for a request like mine, So I can contact them ?
- Can any developer ask for their permission for copyrights ?
Correct me if any info provided is wrong or outdated.
Thanks in advance.
