I don't know if this is the right part of the forum, but what criteria does the Moulinsart Foundation use to sanction certain Tintin-related materials?

Money and how much you are prepared to give them.

According to this logic, if someone wanted to finish "Tintin and the Alph-Art" with intense sexuality a-la-"Tintin in Thailand" but gave the Foundation a ton of money, would that person be considered legitimate? There must be some other criteria...

Naturally there are other factors such as damaging the brand name but Moulinsart are there to create revenue from the Tintin name, hence money is the primary factor and they protect their copyright seriously

First of all Moulinsart is not a "foundation". The S.A. after the name stands for Société Anonyme, or limited company. Moulinsart S.A. is the exclusive worldwide owner of all exploitation rights related to the work of Hergé.

As to their "criteria" for sanctioning works - why would they have one? If somebody approaches them with a commercial idea and they like it they would probably do it.

Moulinsart have published a charter which concerns the use of Hergé's work on the internet. You can read it here http://www.tintin.com/home/ring/charte_en.html**

--
** = English-language version charter referred to above exists no longer; the French version can be found at http://www.tintin.com/home/legal/droits.html
