rosekolodny: King Something: Short version: Guy unaware of the concept of "work for hire" is commissioned to make a waifu avatar for a live streamer, does so. She becomes popular, so he decides he owns the rights to her avatar's name and likeness. The internet ends up hating him for it.

Screw that dude.  You get paid to create something, you don't own the IP unless you specify it in writing.  The person who paid for the IP owns it.

Is that your legal scholarly background talking or your ass talking?

If you owned your body, you could put whatever you wanted into it

pretty simple stuff, even though it is complex.

Do you at all in any way generate a revenue stream from your activity?

If yes = all content MUST be your own personal content, and not borrowed without express permission. So if you choose to use an avatar to speak through, you better believe that needs to be your own original art work(or one you own), that does not come too close to being mistakable for an established intellectual property.

One may be "inspired by" only so much, while also attempting to be their own commercial endeavor.
Anyone that wants to be too close to other owned intellectual property needs to eschew for profit endeavors and keep to the for free fan fic stuff.

If you want to earn money in the world, you better have all your i's dotted, t's crossed, and bills paid.
Or you may not have as legit a claim to the earnings as you might have imagined.

that or be a a big established corp that just can screw over anyone too small to take them to court in the first place.

I've been posting on fark with a virtual avatar for years now, the artist came begging for money once my account got famous but I told him he could only have rights to the bejeweled pasties and the tiara, that seemed to shut him up.
