"JBG welcomes the streaming of its games to a live audience (“Live Streaming Content”) via Twitch and other video streaming services, provided that such Live Streaming Content complies with this Agreement and the following conditions:

  • Live Streaming Content must have no commercial (i.e., monetary) objective. As an exception to this, you are permitted to monetize Live Streaming Content (such as Twitch and YouTube videos) with advertisements, subscriptions, bits, or other monetization tools integrated into the streaming platform, as well as external subscriptions such as patreon donations.

In addition, the Live Streaming Content must not include any co-branded content without JBG’s express written consent (e.g., promoting sponsorships with other companies).

  • You may not use any JBG Content or Marks in a manner that is derogatory or that may damage the reputation or goodwill of JBG (as determined by JBG).

  • The Live Streaming Content may not include links or information related to exploits or hacks to the Services or any other games.
