I have a Symbol from a game, I would like to use on a T-shirt Design and possibly make more than 1 shirt. Is it copyright infringement to do so? If it made for like a Jersey design?

For instance, my Head band looks like the 1-up mushrooms from Mario, Is it free game, or would it just be safer to just ask the Games designers if I can go ahead and use the Symbol/logo

If in doubt, e-mail somebody from the company you think it's from, and ask them. Generally, you have to get written permission from a company to use their logo, before a jersey printer or anybody else will put it on a product. It all depends on the company, but some of them don't mind. As long as you're not planning on selling it, and it's only for personal use, the company most likely won't have an issue with it, but make sure you ask first. Back when I was planning on making a pair of custom grips with Stinger, I found a picture online I really liked, and e-mailed the owner of the picture and the owner was more than happy to give me permission to use the picture, so long as the grips were for personal use and would never be sold, and only one pair would be made.

Yeah I'm just looking into it. This symbol is NEVER used, and barley shows up in the game, but it just catches my eye when I see it.

Edit: Emailed Bethesda, hope it doesn't take a decade for a response.

There are 2 kinds of people in this world. Those who think they can and those who think they can't. both of them are right.
