Unreal Wiki copyright statement

Basically, authors retain ownership. Permissions are extended to Fair Use on the World Wide Web. Permission is granted to reference, or link to, content on this site. Do not copy content on this site unless within the bounds of Fair Use.


The collection and structure of UnrealWiki are copyright UnrealWiki. UnrealWiki cannot validate authorship or any other claims made in the site's content.

The site reserves the right to make technical edits to the contributed material, but not so as to change the original meaning or intent. This is in the spirit of a letter to the editor of a newspaper. Anonymous corrections to a signed work are offered in the spirit of technical editing and become the property of the original author(s).


Permission to distribute through UnrealWiki's systems is implicitly given to the UnrealWiki with each posting, signed or otherwise. Permission to distribute content in a timestamped compilation is also implicitly granted to UnrealWiki. For example, an UnrealWiki compiled help file, or a copy of the site in ZIP or on CD.

Fair Use

The Fair Use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include -

(1) The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;

(2) The nature of the copyrighted work;

(3) The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and

(4) The effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.

The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors
