LastEnd Video Policy

LastEnd strongly supports the efforts of its community members who produce community videos (referred to hereafter as a "Production") using video images, footage, music, sounds, speech, or other assets from LastEnd's copyrighted products ("LastEnd Content"), subject to a few conditions.

The Fundamental Rule
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
First and foremost, note that except as specifically provided herein, LastEnd requires that the use of LastEnd Content must be limited to non-commercial purposes.

What this means
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As a community content creator, you are permitted to create video productions using LastEnd's Content, and to distribute them freely on your website, or on other websites where viewers can freely view your Production.

Limitation of Usage
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Neither you nor the operator of any website where your Production(s) may be viewed can force a viewer to pay a "fee" to be able to view your Production(s).

Regarding Websites and "Premium Access"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We understand that many third party websites have a "free" method to see their video content, as well as a 'premium' membership service that allows for speedier viewing. For clarity, please note that as long as the website that hosts your Production provides a free method to allow viewers to see the Production, LastEnd will not object to your Production being hosted on that site, regardless of the site's "for pay" premium service plans.

Guidelines for distributing Productions with LastEnd Content
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note that LastEnd's restriction that Productions be limited to "non-commercial" uses also means that you may not license a Production you have created to another company for a fee, or for any other form of compensation, without specific written permission from LastEnd to do so. LastEnd reserves the right to use its products for all commercial purposes. The only exceptions to this rule are if you participate in partner programs with YouTube, Justin.tv, Blip.tv, Own3d.tv, or Ustream.tv (the “Production Websites”) whereby a Production Website may pay you for views of a Production if you are accepted into their partner program.

We also allow paid or non-paid tutorials. In the case of tutorials no free method is required.

Important notes
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For business reasons, there may be times when LastEnd will need to terminate your right to distribute or host a specific Production, and in such a case, LastEnd shall have the right to do so without notice or liability to you. A content use license is not unlimited: it permits the use of the LastEnd materials in your Production only for the 'event' that the license has been issued for, and in the specific methods outlined in the license.

Educational Use of Production Materials
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LastEnd supports the use of its game assets for educational purposes, and you are welcome and encouraged to create a Production for a school project, master's thesis, etc. All limitations above still apply to Productions created for educational purposes.

Inclusion of Sponsor Names, Logos, or Affiliates
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Knowing that there are organizations out there willing and ready to support producers in the video community, the mentioning of producer or contest sponsors, through methods such as logos at the beginning of the production, or the verbal mentioning of sponsor names, is permissible. However, you may not include more than 25 seconds total of sponsor promotion per Production. Additionally you must visually include the text "Sponsored By" when being displayed. Simple text 'credits,' included at the end of your Production and unaccompanied by logos, slogans, or other methods of visual isolation, are not bound by this restriction.

For further information
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the event that you have any questions about your Production in regards to LastEnd's Video guidelines or would like to inquire about obtaining a license as described above, feel free to send us a note at videos@LastEnd.com.

Right to change
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We reserve the right to change this policy at any time without notice. To keep in good standing with us check back here from time to time to see if any of the terms have changed.
