Copyright & Fair Use

About Fair Use

“Fair Use” is a legal doctrine allowing for reuse of copyright-protected material in certain circumstances. Dotabuff is based in the United States and follows the guiding rules and laws respecting copyright and fair use.

Dotabuff Clips

Dotabuff Clips combine realtime and historical game data, streaming platform data, and broadcast video, audio, and metadata to provide a compelling new experience that provides value to the Dota 2 community. In the same way that broadcast studios add value to the experience of watching a live game, we too aim to contribute to better understanding past broadcasts.

Next Steps

  1. Do you own rights to the work?
  2. Does the use of your work constitute fair use?
