Using PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS in Player-Created Content
What Is Player-Created Content?
Player-created content includes anything that our community members create based on or related to PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS with a strong and healthy community as its goal. This includes fanart, fansites, fan videos, and PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS streams, for example.
The General Idea
Bluehole wants to foster robust community activities and encourage our players’ efforts to use their creative talents for PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS and its community as long as any player-created content meets the following conditions:
Non-Commercial and Not-for-Profit Use
All player-created content must be available for free to the public. You may not charge any one-time or recurring fees, or require any action from others (such as giving their information or downloading anything that is not the content itself).
Any and all Player Content submitted to Bluehole shall be deemed, and shall remain, the property of Bluehole from the moment such Player Content is created. Bluehole shall exclusively own all now known or hereafter existing copyrights and all other intellectual property rights to all Player Content of every kind and nature, in perpetuity throughout the world. To the extent that any of the above may be void or unenforceable, you agree that any and all Player Content is hereby irrevocably assigned to Bluehole, together with all intellectual property rights therein. To the extent any of the Player Content is not assignable, by submitting Player Content to Bluehole, you agree that Bluehole shall be irrevocably entitled, directly or indirectly throughout the world and in perpetuity, to modify, adapt, use, reproduce, license, publish, broadcast, perform, sell, translate, create derivative works from and distribute any Player Content for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, in any medium now known or hereafter devised, without compensation or credit to the provider or author of the Player Content. You also give up any claim that any use by Bluehole of any Player Content violates any of your rights, including but not limited to moral rights, rights of privacy, rights to publicity, proprietary or other rights, and/or rights to credit for the material or ideas set forth therein.
Proper Display of Copyrighted/Trademarked Logos and Other Appropriate Information
All player-created content must acknowledge and display the appropriate copyright and trademarks. Using other intellectual properties without the proper license or permission is not acceptable.
Appropriate Use of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS and/or Bluehole’s Product and Brand
All player-created content must not contain (or link to) other sources and/or advertisements containing any hacks, exploits, gold farming, illegal activities, content that would conflict with PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS’s ESRB rating, if applicable, or any other inappropriate content, as determined by Bluehole.
Bluehole does not endorse or give license to any player-created content. Bluehole may highlight, feature, modify, or use any or all parts of the player-created content without the creator’s consent in any way, for any purposes we see fit.
Bluehole also reserves the right to monitor and revoke any and all use of Bluehole’s intellectual property at any time and for any or no reason, at its sole discretion.
