Find Ubisoft games cool

Ubisoft Video Policies

Last updated: Jan. 2016

We're thrilled to have such dedicated fans who use our game content creatively.

If you observe the following guidelines, we welcome your creative and dynamic work such as walkthroughs, Let's Play, speedruns, reviews, etc. with game content from Ubisoft and its publication on your website, on YouTube or other digital services.

This means:

  • Do not use any assets from our games (such as voice, music, items) and do not pass them on separately.

  • Uploading game assets before the game's official release date may result in Ubisoft blocking your content unless you have our express prior consent to do so.

  • You are free to monetize your videos through the YouTube Affiliate Program or similar programs on other video websites, unless your videos contain copyrighted music stored in YouTube's Content ID system or similar technology is identified on another website. When you upload a video, you may receive a notification that a music company owns rights to the video and has monetized it, and in addition, commercials may appear within or next to your video. In most cases, your video will not be blocked and these notices are only there to inform you that another company has fully monetized this content within the system. Please do not contest these copyright claims unless you have a direct license from the rights holder. All other uses of our content in videos may not be in a commercial setting.

  • If your YouTube channel is subject to an agreement with a Multi-Channel Network (MCN) whereby the MCN monetizes on your behalf, please contact the MCN or the copyright owner of that music to ensure that your MCN has an agreement closed with the music company.

  • Your videos must be freely accessible and free for all users.

  • Your videos may not be sold to third parties or licensed for financial consideration.

  • Stay cool Do not use racist, sexist, homophobic, or offensive content in your videos. We reserve the right to remove content that we consider objectionable for whatever reason on a case-by-case basis.

  • These guidelines only apply to Ubisoft footage. If your video contains music that is owned by third parties (including pop music in our games) or other content that does not belong to Ubisoft, it is your responsibility to obtain permission from the content owner.

  • This guideline is intended to allow you to produce videos that contain your creative ideas about the content that we hold. Therefore, merely copying our official trailers, TV commercials, and our non-dynamic in-game footage is not in accordance with the spirit of these guidelines; it is not allowed and will result in the removal of your content. These guidelines are designed to help empower community and creative expression. Just copying doesn't help. You can do a lot better!

  • After all, these guidelines do not include any permission to upload our entire game, or even any major portion of the game, to your website. Again, this is not a creative expression of your abilities, it is a fraud. We reserve the right to remove content that only partially or fully reproduces our games on a case-by-case basis.

Failure to follow these guidelines could result in Ubisoft having your video removed. Ubisoft also reserves the right to change these guidelines at any time for any reason. We will post a notice on the Policy Page if this occurs and this change will take effect within fifteen (15) days.

Remember: we want to avoid having to constantly control communities that upload videos. We'd much rather focus our efforts on making games.

Finally, we don't have the capacity or the staff to answer each video copyright request individually. Therefore, please do not write to us with such requests. Should someone ask you to provide proof of permission, refer them to these guidelines. They have been published here: (https://www.ubisoft.com/videopolicy/).
