Am I allowed to use real-life notes like £5, £10, ect? I’m going to be using them as overlays, (2) and letting the reader pick one of them to use to buy something. Is this ok?
My first thought is that I don’t think it should be too much of a problem. The only thing that could be an issue is if you’re using real photographs since those images include details from real-life bills that are meant to protect people against counterfeit money. It’s a big part of why companies can’t make fake cash in board games or even just “play money” look too real. So if you used a render/drawing/edit that didn’t include said details, I feel like you would be okay.
That being said, I haven’t come across any official rules regarding this one way or the other, so my response is really just what I think might happen.
I guess I’ll play it safe then. Thanks!
