Because blueprints are not considered as intellectual property are we allowed to recreate,copy or have improved or largely altered versions of certain blueprints and resell them as our own?
For example there is a product on the marketplace called “Footsteps with Blueprint Setup”](Footsteps Sounds with Blueprint Setup in Sound Effects - UE Marketplace) I had to spend countless hours (over 72 hours) to figure out the entire blueprint setup and had to fix a large amount of mistakes that this developer had made and never bothered to fix for almost a year now. Not only did I spend $20 of my own money on broken blueprints I also had to spend almost several days working on this blueprint fixing all of the mistakes that he had made and selling me a broken and untested product.
I have my own version of this blueprint setup that is similar with large changes made to it and I plan to sell my version on the marketplace. As long as I replace the sound effects with my own sound effects I will not be breaking any intellectual property and it will be considered as my own product.
I just want to make this clear before submitting this and putting it up for sale. I intend to make superior versions of blueprints mostly due to the fact that these inferior versions are either broken or have remained broken for several months or years with the developers having no intention of fixing their mistakes.
