Riot Games is investigating a copyright-related takedown it issued to artist KuttySarkArt earlier this week. The takedown notice involves artwork of one of KuttySarkArt’s original characters on merchandise platform TeePublic, seemingly for using the word “Arcane” in the depiction.
“While we’re investigating what happened here, it’s clear that this takedown request was made in error,” Riot said in an official statement. “We apologize for this experience and wanted to assure you all that we’re actively reviewing.” The company also mentioned that “there are a number of teams and third-party agencies” that want to protect its intellectual property. Riot has since contacted the artist directly and is working with them to resolve the issue.
