Intellectual Property and Trademarks
Bungie strongly supports the efforts of our community to produce non-commercial content using video images, footage, music, sounds, dialogue, or other assets from our games, subject to a few conditions. These creations can be freely shared with other players in places like the Bungie.net Creations page. In the event that creators seek to profit from their work, the following guidelines apply.
Players may create videos using Destiny gameplay, which may be uploaded to third party sharing services like YouTube. If a chosen video-on-demand service enables players to monetize content, 20% of the content within the video must have been created by the player. Examples of what “player created content” may be defined as include custom commentary, animations, graphics, or gameplay. Content creators should use our stuff to make their own stuff, rather than uploading our content to their own channels.
Derivative artworks (physical and digital) based on the world of Destiny cannot be sold without expressed permission from Bungie. Art may be uploaded to the Bungie.net Community Creations page, or other social networks or community websites such as Twitter, Facebook, or Deviant Art. Your artwork may also be submitted as a Merchandise Inquiry. Please see below for additional details.
Costumes and Props are often swapped or traded between Cosplayers in the interest of recuperating expenses for fabrication. While this act of community sharing is permitted, the distribution of these items using online platforms including (but not limited to) Etsy, ebay, or Amazon is not authorized without expressed permission. To inquire about obtaining a license to create and sell these items, contact us by sending an email inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bungie Store features official products that enable players to express their enthusiasm for Destiny. Specific licensed partners also offer products available to players of Destiny. To ensure the quality of all Destiny products, all merchandise is created under a licensing agreement and all prospective licensees are thoroughly reviewed by Bungie before a license is granted. If you are a company that is interested in an official merchandise license agreement, please contact us by sending an email inquiry to email@example.com.
