Can I use the Halo soundtracks for my machinima (school project)?
Posted 16 May 2012 - 07:50 PM
I'm making a Halo: Reach machinima for a school project and it is entirely non-profit (i.e. I won't be making any money from it). Furthermore, I don't plan to submit the machinima to YouTube either.
So my question is (as the title suggests), can I use the Halo soundtracks (Halo 1, Halo 2, 3, ODST) for my machinima's background music?

Yes you can. When Halo 1 PC was released with an HEK, a strict disclosure of sorts came with it limiting your usage rights. When Halo 2 for PC shipped, Microsoft reformed their EULA and bwgan a new era for Halo. Under current EULA, any person may use a Halo related asset from any source in their own project, art, mod,.etc, so long as said usage is non-profit. Hope this helps. And btw, be sure to send us a link for it as we here love to see what other members create.
Awesome! Thanks for clearing that up.
