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"

How will 'own created music' be licensed when the game will be released?

Hello, my concern here is that after i've created the OST for my game, will i have to license it somewhere else or it will be automatically licensed with the game, when released. What will be my rights in both cases? I would like an official answer, but everything related is much appreciated.

If this post has an answer, please point me towards it.

I can't give you an official answer because your question isn't about Unreal Engine. I can say that the normal scenario is that all game content, including the artwork, story, and music, are licensed together as a package. It's not licensed separately unless someone is also selling the OST separately.

I understand. Based on your scenario, how does this apply if someone chooses to post the OST to YouTube? Will the respective video going to be copyrighted by Unreal, or not at all?

Well in that case the author has a right to force the content off of YouTube if they don't want it there.

But Epic will never own your soundtrack.
