  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Then why is it good, if I license the brand on IMG? And there are a lot of products on the internet that are not from the original epic store. Do they all run counter to the law?

Selling fan art without permission is illegal. Not just epic's stuff, all fan art. The thing is people can get away with selling it very easily because to get fan art removed from a particular store's website, fortnight swag in this case, epic would have to send a complaint about that seller. But then the seller can just move to another site or create a new account. And if the seller has his own website stopping him would become even more time consuming since then you would be talking about filing lawsuits.

So it's just not practical for most companies to spend much time on stopping fan art. As a result there is a pretty big fan art market, so big that people assume it's legal since so many people are doing it.
