The following guide contains basic rules that will help you ensure that any video using our intellectual property (such as video images, art, music, sounds and other content) is legit before posting to YouTube, streaming sites, or just for you and your friends. This policy should allow you to get any video permissions you need from sites like YouTube – and make it clear what kinds of videos are fine with us.
Not-for-profit (unless otherwise called out in this policy). All videos must be made publically available without requiring payment by a viewer or any other restriction on access. This means:
No Licensing. Generally, you cannot license your videos to any third party for a fee or other value without our approval. However, there are important exceptions:
Sponsorships are fine. If you want to display a sponsor’s logo at the beginning of a video, in the credits, or give them a shout out, that’s great. Just a few simples rules:
Keep it clean. Absolutely no racist, sexist, homophobic, or any other offensive content. We also ask that you keep your videos focused on our game, and away from overtly religious, political or other controversial topics.
Respect other creators. Other than 1C Game Studios intellectual property, don’t include content that’s not your original creation unless you have permission from the creator.
