Character likeness rights in SFM
So, I've been planning out a SFM which i hope to create, and one of the characters is a spy dressed in Assassin's Creed themed TF2 items, so I was wondering,

A) If i made his movements somewhat similar or inspired by the ones in Assassin's Creed

and

B) If I used Ubisoft's assassin's creed music

Would I face legal issues regard Character likeness and Music rights ?

http://www.ubi.com/US/Info/Info.aspx?tagname=TermsOfUse

I read this page, and the UGC (User Generated Content) section , unless i misread it states that I would have to state that the music is from Ubisoft to freely use it.

Anyone can tell me ? Cause the whole concept on my video was built around a spy, and slow motion shots and stuff (i know, its vague, but i'd rather not get into legal issues)

As long as you follow their Youtube terms[forums.ubi.com] you should be fine.

So thats a yes to Assasin's creed music and inspired movements in SFM videos ? or no ? im not sure

Inspired movements is fine.

Music, the absolute worst that'll happen is that your video might get muted by a copyright claim. Ubisoft try not to do this (it's usually by an overzealous soundtrack reseller) so you should be fine.

According to that link, you are free to use their stuff so long as you aren't being offensive, you can even monetize your videos (which is still considered non-commercial use).

Basically, don't be racist and don't charge people to see it. everything else is fair game as far as youtube vids are concerned.

Dag, I guess that kills the BlockBuster Full Length movie I was going to sell to HollyWood and make a ton of money off of then. Snarflarkle.

It's only wrong if you get caught.
