Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

not a lawyer nor epic staff. So take my comment "AS IS"

As I understand things. You are the licensee and the creator of the product. So from the EULA, that makes you responsible for the 5% royalty due for any revenue made with the product. (As for royalties, there is a 5% royalty on gross revenue that is generated from "all in-app purchases, downloadable content, microtransactions, subscriptions, or redemption of virtual currency, either within a Product or made externally but which directly affect the operation of the Product.")

best way to protect yourself, you should ensure your customer become a valid licensee AND have the contrat ensure he takes care of the licencee fees himself.

I can only recommend taking advise from a lawyer and get best advices from epic staff

The above comment is exactly correct. Under the EULA, you will owe royalties even though you don't receive the game revenue. I would highly recommend that you require in your contract with your customer that your customer accept the EULA and take responsibility for royalties.
