FAN CONTENT POLICY
Raymond is honored by the interest shown by fans in his work, and appreciates that fans want to create artwork, websites, and other content based on his intellectual property. At the same time, Raymond spends considerable time, thought, and money creating his intellectual property and needs to protect it.
In most cases, using Raymond Cripps' games, artwork, videos, music, characters, logos, and other intellectual property (Raymond Cripps’ IP) without his permission is illegal and a violation of his rights.

Please read this Policy carefully before creating any Fan Content. Raymond reserves the right to change this Policy at any time by posting the revised Policy to the official website. Any existing Fan Content that no longer complies with this Policy due to a change in the Policy must be modified to be compliant with the Policy.
