GAME2GIVE UPDATE

From Bungie blog:

Bungie Foundation: Wow! We are completely blown away by the generosity you all showed throughout the Game2Give fundraising campaign in support of the Bungie Foundation’s charitable pillars of children’s health and wellbeing, humanitarian aid, and inclusion, diversity, and equity. 

Thanks to all of you, Game2Give has raised a record amount of $2,011,025! We reached this incredible amount of funding because of the 38,500+ donors and 575 fundraisers who supported across 103 countries. To say this was a true global Guardian initiative is an understatement! 

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for showing us once again how truly special the Bungie community is through your care and compassion for those in need around the world.

Countries from all over the world participated in the latest charity drive, showing the true power of what the gaming community is capable of. Together, we were able to provide emotional and social support to more than 100,000 children through entertainment and iPad goodness. Together, we’ve sent medical aid to Ukraine during a time of immense crisis. And together, we’ve helped diverse youth get the education they want in STEM fields and efforts to reduce racism in the world of game development. Together, we should be proud. If you listen closely, you may even hear Shaxx screaming in victory for all these accomplishments; making our space-uncles proud, one charity at a time.”

Bungie

Big thank you to everyone that donated towards the fundraiser, helping us raise a total of $5,660!! Your generosity, kindness, and support is appreciated very much! ❤

CLARIFICATION OF ACCOUNT SECURITY POLICIES

From Bungie blog:

Last year Bungie updated their Destiny 2 Security policy and how we would be taking action against account recoveries and account boosting services.

“As noted in our Account Restrictions and Banning Policies article and Terms of Service, found here and here, it is referenced that players agree to not allow access to their Destiny 2 accounts to anyone outside of their umbrella of ownership. Account boosting also falls under this restriction scope, which is where players will relinquish their accounts to boost their Light levels and earn certain high-level gear, which puts an unfair investment into one’s character when paired up against those playing the game organically. 

Using these types of services can tarnish competitive activities like Trials of Osiris, or even reduce the value of rewards from activities like raids and Grandmaster Nightfalls. To protect the integrity of these experiences, we are issuing the appropriate reprimands to a number of accounts in accordance with our policy. Our security team had this to say about our policies regarding account sharing and other in-game behaviors that can jeopardize account integrity: 

Bungie Product Security Team: In August 2021, Bungie adjusted its policy to clarify that account recovery, boosting, and players that benefit from these services were in violation of our Terms of Service. Since then, we have closely monitored suspected activity and issued our first ban wave against identified violators. We want to assure the community that we will fairly enforce our policy on player conduct for even the most skilled or well-known players. 

Destiny is an evolving experience, and we will continue to update our policies to make the game a more enjoyable and safe experience for all players. We will continue to update the community on the further evolution of these policies, but for now, you can read up on our current stance right here.”

TAKEDOWN CLARIFICATIONS

Bungie stated while some of the takedowns in the past have been legitimate violations, many recent strikes were issued for content that does not violate those terms. [View Bungie’s Intellectual Property Guidelines]

From Bungie blog post

“Google has confirmed that the accounts that have submitted fraudulent legal requests to YouTube have been terminated and will no longer have access to Google products. All fraudulent submissions from these accounts will be reversed (some have already, the rest should come through shortly). The processing of these takedowns was an enforcement mistake by Google, and beyond rescinding the strikes and reinstating the videos, they are also working on process improvements to reduce the likelihood of any similar mistakes in the future. Please be patient as we work with YouTube to correct the fraudulent DMCA notices. In the meantime, we ask that you please refrain from harassing any member of the community or any employee of CSC. 

We wanted to clear up a few misconceptions caused by this fraud:  

  • CSC, a Bungie partner that aids in IP protection, did not go rogue or issue any unauthorized takedowns.  
    • Bungie does not use or authorize algorithmic takedowns on YouTube.  All actions by CSC are reviewed and authorized by Bungie.  
      • Because these are human processes, in rare occurrences human error has occurred, in which we have quickly worked to correct any issues.  
    • Bungie investigated the claims of suspicious takedowns and found that several strikes were perpetrated by a “bad actor” that is not affiliated with Bungie or CSC, but who has impersonated CSC by falsifying look-alike email aliases. This attack occurred after, and possibly in response to, a recent set of authentic takedowns of OST uploads. 

Most of the recent takedowns carried out by us were for uploads of original soundtrack (OST) music content. While it’s not permitted to take a soundtrack we release and upload it to your channel, there has been feedback from the community about the desire to access music that is not currently available. Our audio team’s main priority is creating and maintaining the amazing music in the game, and we won’t be able to release every version of every song. But we do agree that we would like to create avenues for the community to fill these gaps and archive some of the music not currently available. 

Going forward we will be allowing certain Destiny music tracks to be uploaded to channels for archival purposes. For those creators interested in this type of content creation, the guidelines below should be reviewed:  

  • It can’t be an OST song that Bungie has already released or posted elsewhere publicly.
  • The content cannot be monetized.
  • The creator needs to obtain permission from Bungie by contacting this email: licensing@bungie.com.

At the end of the day, our content creator community is invaluable to us – and no, not just the “big” creators. We understand that many creators have their content as a source of primary income, and we do not wish to cause harm to those that express their passion through art. However, as with any company, there are boundaries in place to protect both the community and the property that the Destiny 2 teams have poured their souls into through the years. Because this is important to the future of the game and the future of our community, we have been working to update our community guidelines messaging, found in its original iteration here, to make our boundaries as a business clearer so that you, the creators, can make the content your souls crave without fear. We will share the updated resource with you all when those changes are finalized.”
