Copyright, Trademark and IP Policies

The Space Platform is a creative platform - we wish to encourage all creators to upload original innovative content to our platform. When uploading content to our platform however, we request that you do not infringe on other peoples works. This includes incorporating materials such as trademarks from popular brands or other third parties without their explicit consent.

Preventing Infringement

  • The Space Platform is a curated service, we aim to personally review most content uploaded onto the service. While this does not guarantee we can prohibit all infringing content (particularly that which we do not recognise), we do aim to limit the need for duplicate complaints over the same content.
  • We require a point of contact for all content uploaded to the service, and a contract for all content uploaded for sale. (This does allow us to trace who is responsible for all content uploaded onto the platform)
  • We operate with a delay between item purchases and cashouts to developers - this period allows us to retain funds for infringed content, and limit profiting from any infringing content.

Content Takedowns

If you believe someone has uploaded your IP (or IP for someone you formally represent), you may submit a take-down request to us.

For fastest processing, please raise a support ticket at [[1]] with the Regarding field as 'IP & Copyright Infringement'.

For physical notices of infringement, please mail to

22A St. James's Square London,
SW1Y 4JH, United Kingdom

Phone: +44 (0) 207 078 7449
or email:

Please include:

  • Where you saw the content (the name or direct URL of a region, our shop front, or an avatar name.)
  • A screenshot of the infringing content, or the content it is designed to look like.
  • The time, date and timezone of when you saw the infringing content.
  • Any details about the content (such as name or creator)
  • On what grounds you believe this to be infringing content ("I developed this and did not provide authorisation")

The more information you can provide about a piece of infringing content, the faster we can handle removing it. We have a strong respect for the intellectual property of creators, and will always do our best to process such infringements promptly.

Right of Reply

If there is a gray area over a piece of content (e.g. the supplied evidence does not conclusively indicate the theft of the work), we will ask the uploader to respond within 24 hours before making a judgement and possibly removing the content.

For that reason, please include as much documentation of the infringement as possible, and evidence of your ownership to limit our need to do this; acceptable evidence could include:

  • Copyright registration information
  • Links to where the item was originally sold, and some proof you own these listings.
  • Screenshot of source files with destructed material (e.g. Photoshop document with layers window visible)

Suspensions, Violation of Terms

If you are found to have uploaded unauthorised content, your right to sell in the space marketplace may be suspended or banned. Furthermore, you may be liable for any legal costs imposed on Sine Wave Entertainment dealing with your infringement. See the Space Content Agreement for further information, but in short; do not upload unauthorised content.
