Nice work and thanks for the breakdown! Always interesting to see someone else's approach to a scene, and the new/different methods they use and/or come up with :)

Epic Conducts and Audit of Unreal Marketplace
5 January, 2018

The company wants to ensure that asset makers are not infringing copyrights and trademarks. If you’re planning on adding some new content to Unreal Engine Marketplace, do check out this forum thread. The company is going to continue auditing assets and delete those, which might violate the terms and conditions.

Here’s what you need to be worried about:

Epic has always required that sellers have full rights to assets they are distributing on the Marketplace. The following language has been in the Marketplace Distribution Agreement since the store’s launch:

Section 2:

b. You represent and warrant that you have all intellectual property rights necessary for you to grant Epic the rights set forth in this Agreement, including all necessary patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other proprietary rights, in and to your Content. If third-party materials are included in the Content, you represent and warrant that you have the right to distribute the third-party material in the Content. You agree that you will not submit material to the Marketplace that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret, or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including patent, privacy, and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from the rightful owner to submit the material to the Marketplace.

Section 5:

c. You represent and warrant that none of your Content, Brand Features, or Developer Materials:

i. violates, infringes, or misappropriates any copyright, trademark, trade secret, trade dress, patent, publicity, privacy, or other right of any person;

The following is also included in the Marketplace Submission Guidelines:

15. Restricted Content

The Seller must have legal rights to redistribute all components of the content.

The content must not use any logos or branding for which the seller does not have appropriate legal rights.

Submissions must be free of any trademarked or copyrighted designs and/or materials (unless owned by or adequately licensed to the Seller).

If this doesn’t apply to you, you can sleep tight this night. If not, you’d better start making some drastic adjustments to your content.
