    “Parody – n – a piece of writing, music, etc., that imitates the style of someone or something else in an amusing way.” This is not a parody. This is someone who wanted to make add-ons for cards-against-humanity and jump on that bandwagon. I would not be surprised if they got sued and lost. It would be akin to me making a line of 28mm miniatures similar to, and compatible with Warhammer and calling it “BoreHammer: A Parody”.

      Uh, Cards against Humanity is under a Creative Commons license and they explicitly give permission to “remix” the game, make your own copies, whatever. No lawsuit gonna happen here.

        Per the Cards Againsty Humanity website: “Cards Against Humanity is distributed under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA 2.0 license. That means you can use and remix the game for free, but you can’t sell it without our permission.” So, unless they have permission to sell this, which I doubt by the name, this does not fall under creative commons and is in fact illegal. They are selling a competing product, for profit, with a name intended to confuse the consumer. There is nothing about this that doesn’t scream “you are going to get sued.”

    Do I have your permission to make some crappy Cards Against Humanity thing like an app?

    Cards Against Humanity is available under a BY-NC-SA 2.0 Creative Commons license. That means you can use our content to make whatever, but you have to give us credit, you can’t profit from the use of our content (this means ad revenue is not allowed), and you have to share whatever you make in the same way we share it (this means you can’t submit our content to any app store). We own the name “Cards Against Humanity,” so you have to call your crappy thing something else.

    So long as they name it something different (check), have different content (none of the cards the same, check), they should be fine. Play mechanics can’t be patented/copyrighted/whatever.
