Tripwire Interactive Policy on Gameplay and related Videos

We are very happy for members of our community to produce videos of our games, using video images, footage, music, sounds, speech, or other assets from our products (Tripwire Interactive Content), with a few rules. Except as noted below, Tripwire Interactive Content may only be used for NON-commercial use – i.e. you can’t use our content to make you richer, without our permission.

Any and all videos created using Tripwire Interactive Content must be available to view by anyone, for free. Websites that charge users a “Premium Fee” to view videos can only be used where there is also a “Free” option to view the videos. In other words, users should not, under any circumstances, be forced to pay money to view the videos.

The exception to this is websites that run “partner programs”, such as Youtube that allow you to monetize your videos without charging the viewers a fee.

Monetization Permissions:

This applies to the following websites/services at this time (and ONLY these services):

  • Youtube
  • Twitch
  • Blip.tv
  • Own3d.tv
  • Ustream.tv
  • Hitbox

We are happy for anyone to use recorded video material from our games as long as the video is somehow related to the game(s) in question (e.g. review, preview, a Let’s Play, or some other similar type), is recorded at a decent resolution and credits the game. We are also happy for anyone to use music from the games in connection with videos related to our games. However music used outside of videos of our games is not allowed unless specific permission is requested.

If you have any further questions, or the service that you wish to monetize on is not listed above, please contact us via the standard contact form on the website.
