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"

Creating a corporate account allowed?

Building on this post:

https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/342487/sharing-marketplace-assets-on-different-accounts.html

I would like to check if we are allowed to created an account to represent our corporation (rather than an individual) such that Marketplace purchases (other than plug-ins) can all be made on a single account? I'm hesitant to associate it with a single employee as development roles change, people leave, etc.

Second, if all purchases can be made on a single account, Section 1Ad of the EULA seems to allow for distribution of Paid Plug-ins to Paid Plug-in Users. How do we designate Paid Plug-in Users?

Thanks!

At this time, we don't have Epic accounts for companies rather than individuals. For Unreal Engine, individuals accept the EULA, but under the terms of the EULA, the company is the licensee if there is a company, and the individual employee is a User under that company/licensee.

If a User (company employee) purchases an asset on behalf of the company, the asset can be shared among employees of that company and used on multiple projects. This doesn't need to be formalized - you are just responsible that it's only shared among employees (or, to a more limited extent, contractors per the terms of Section 1(A)(c)).

As for Paid Plug-Ins, you are responsible for ensuring that each User has separately purchased the plug-in; there is no formal process.
