    Legal Question on educational content

    Greetings!

    Suppose I want to buy content from the Marketplace, to make a small game. Then make a full tutorial on how it was done from scratch, and sell it on the Marketplace (videos and full project source). Is this allowed?

    I've already read the business terms, but find the above a bit tricky. Any help is appreciated.

    Sounds like a no to me.

      The default answer is no. You can use other developers' Marketplace content for making games, but not for making content for sale to other developers for development (even a tutorial).

      Of course, you can talk to the developers of the Marketplace content you want to use, and ask for their explicit permission to allow you to do this. If you have their permission, then it's OK.
