Video & Streaming Policy
StudioMDHR Entertainment Inc. (“StudioMDHR”) intensely supports the efforts of its community members who produce community videos (“Let’s Play”, “Walkthrough”, “Preview” and/or “Commentary” videos and streams) using video footage, images, in-game audio or other media assets from StudioMDHR’s copyrighted products. This includes ad-supported and monetized channels/videos, as well as footage or gameplay used on live or recorded television broadcasts.
Specific permission is required for any soundtrack use outside of captured gameplay (please see below for more information).
Please note that StudioMDHR has officially partnered with Create Music Group, a Digital Rights Management Company, to act as our Agent in making copyright claims.

USE OF THE CUPHEAD SOUNDTRACK:
Questions have been raised about the use of copyright claims on YouTube (and other third-party websites) in regards to the Cuphead Soundtrack. It has always been our policy to foster an open dialogue about the game. Often, this dialogue takes the form of digital content: audio, visual, or audiovisual media uploaded to YouTube and viewed there; or hosted/embedded there and viewed on another platform.
As such, it is the policy of Studio MDHR to not establish copyright claims on content which is primarily focused on reviews, walkthroughs, Let’s Plays, previews, or commentaries. Similarly, we will not establish claims on uses of the trailer (in it’s entirety). Our focus has been, and claims will be made, on other uses of soundtrack such as (by way of example but not limited to) unauthorized soundtrack streams or content not about Cuphead that uses the soundtrack for background music. In these uses, claims may be made.
In order to assure that this policy is followed strictly, as well as ensuring that we comply with all other YouTube policies, we have contracted with an experienced Digital Rights Management Company to act as our Agent in making copyright claims. Any claims for the Cuphead Soundtrack will be made by our agent: Create Music Group.
If you feel as though a claim has been made in error, please feel free to contact them directly. Send an email to email@example.com and be sure to include “Cuphead Claim” in the Subject Line.
Thank you for your support of Cuphead!
