Marketplace Purchases

Hi,
If we purchase stuff in the Marketplace, are we allowed to distribute it to our students? The purpose is that they would be using it in their projects for school, but I’m not sure how that would be regulated / enforced…

Someone asked this question a while ago with regards to a team setting, and questioned similarly if he would be allowed to distribute assets among his team. I believe the answer he was given was no, that they have to individually purchase them. Can’t seem to dig up the link, but it was on the general discussion forums.

Hmm. Hopefully that’s not the case, but I can see how making it available for distribution would be a slippery slope. Thanks for the reply!

I think in that case it’s not so clear, because:

"The buyer is also licensed to make the content available to employees and contractors for the sole purpose of contributing to products controlled by the buyer. "

So I personally would post your question on answerhub -> https://answers.unrealengine.com/index.html :slight_smile:

Don’t take my word for it. I just remember someone asking the same a while ago and being told something along those lines. It’s best to ask Epic themselves. =)
