We're fine.

BYOND doesn't promote it or show it anywhere on their site. You have to actually search for it.

There are minimal art works used that are direct from the anime etc. One or two pics but nothing like DN used (e.g all those profile pictures). There are no full music tracks used (DNs intro screen), the clips we have are 10-15 seconds max. I think that falls under fair use.

Card images, as pointed out, are not high res full quality photos. They are small 22x22 pixel squares. They aren't really recognisable.

The game doesn't generate ad revenue. DN was very naughty and had adverts.

It actually doesn't fall under fair use. It doesn't fall under education, parody, or send an alternative message (I think thats what they mean by transformative? idfk). But either way, we're small enough as to where Konami is just not going to give a f***.

I just know on YT you can use up to 30 seconds of a copyrighted song. That's what I was thinking about.

It doesn't really matter anyway. Worst case; one could simply replace the games card images with black boxs. And have the proper images as a separate download to plug-in, worst comes to worst. Hard for DN to do that since its all online.

Sucks to be DN. Good time to capitalize on their losses though.

That's clever about the download switch.
