Hi. Sorry if this was already posted somewhere. I looked up for past threads, but all I found were discussions about if having celebrity Minimees were okay, or if having Minimees of anime/video game characters crosses the boarder of copyright infringements. Mine is a bit of a different question... I'm a fan of the Minimees and I think it's great to have the possibilities of owning a doll with the face of someone you know you (already do and therefor) can adore. But what if you're using the face of someone -NOT a celebrity with their faces all over magazines and internet and NOT a character of a video game or otherwise existing works of fiction -but actually some "average person" that you know from work, or school, or the kid down the street you've had a crush on since you were 5? I raise this question because people need to even give their permission to have their photos released. We're technically not allowed to take pictures of someone and post them to the internet without their consent, regardless of context or intent. Now, I know that gets partially tossed out the window at anime conventions -not everyone asks if it's okay to post your picture, but if you pose for a shot, they're assuming that you've given them permission to do what they will with the photograph. Is it against some kind of ethical or moral code to request a Minimee doll based on the face of some "average person" without them knowing (and therefor, without consenting)? I mean, SPECIFICALLY REQUESTING that a doll be created (through a Minimee or similar service) to look like a particular person, not dressing or painting an already existing company sculpt to resemble someone you know. Please keep in mind this is only with regards to the LIKENESS OF THEIR APPEARANCE. Likeness of names, personality, otherwise related characteristics are NOT used at the same time. Is it creepy or stalkerish? Would there be any types/genres of photos/photostories that are "not appropriate"? If you knew and were friends with the person that you know for a fact a doll was made to be him/her, would you tell your friend about it? Even if they're not a "dollfie" enthusiast?
