Last week we reported that artist Tamara Gray was upset that Feminist Frequency had used her fan art in its Tropes vs. Women in Video Games banner without her permission or any accreditation.
A couple days ago, Feminist Frequency addressed this issue on its Tumblr and clarified that the use of Gray's art was an accident; it had mistaken her illustration for official promotional material. While it maintains that the transformative use of Gray's art still falls under fair use, it has replaced her drawing of Dragon Lair's Princess Daphne with official art "as a gesture of goodwill."
The old banner is above. Here's the new banner:
Feminist Frequency goes on to clarify that "the Tropes vs Women project is a nonprofit endeavor. We never place ads on any of our episodes and always make our videos available for free to everyone on YouTube. For those that may be interested, Feminist Frequency is registered as a public-benefit nonprofit corporation in the state of California."
For her part, Gray responded to the art swap on her blog:
