Fan Content Policy

Last updated on May 24 2018

Effective May 25 2018

 

Here at Big Blue Bubble we love seeing all the creations that our community puts together to share their love of My Singing Monsters and all of the Big Blue Bubble brands. We also know that our users want to use in-game assets to make some of the cool stuff they send in. Knowing this we have created the following guidelines as a way of addressing any questions fans might have about the use of Big Blue Bubble’s Intellectual Property (IP), refer to Section 2.1 of the Terms of Service.

Our Fan Content Policy outlines your use of any of Big Blue Bubble’s IP including but not limited to copyrights and trademarks regarding any Big Blue Bubble property, this includes in-game assets, marketing material, physical goods, and any related Fan collateral provided by anyone from Big Blue Bubble (“Big Blue Bubble Assets”) for Fan Content Purposes. In this Policy, “Fan Content” includes the following and not limited to: your fan art (i.e. artwork, photographs, music, videos, and other materials) that is based on Big Blue Bubble IP; and your Big Blue Bubble IP-related personal, non-commercial websites and apps that are freely accessible to the public.

Please read this Policy carefully and before creating any Fan Content. We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time by posting a revised Policy to our website. Any existing Fan Content that no longer complies with this Policy due to any changes that may have been made, must be modified to be compliant with the Policy or removed.
