Rights

We believe in releasing works in a way that empowers our fans. Here’s what that looks like, and what it means for you:

Creative Commons No Derivative Works, Attribution, Non-Commercial

You may copy and share Brothers Barbarianas long as you don’t alter the work, and as long as you link back to us and you don’t make money from it.

Commercial Products

Want to make something cool based on Brothers Barbarian and sell it? You can do that too. Just ask us. Chances are good we’ll say yes. All you need to do then is tell us what percentage of revenue you plan on sharing with us to support the show. We’ll give you a Creator Endorsed mark to stick on your website—courtesy of questioncopyright.org—so that fans know we approve of what you’re doing. That’s it!  (If you renege on the percentage you offered, or otherwise use Brothers Barbarian for evil, we’ll retract the Creator Endorsed mark.)

Screening

Want to screen our series? Go for it! We only ask for a few things in return.

  • Please, please send us pictures, video, or a short report from the screening. We’ll use that to update our (forthcoming) Screenings page.
  • If you’re planning on charging admission, ask us for an official Creator Endorsed mark, as outlined above.
  • Ask the audience at the screening to help support the show. We have a ton of ways they can help out on our Support page, including financial, creative, and social.

Commercial Distribution

If you are a commercial distributor, you must negotiate a traditional contract with us. Brothers Barbarian is available for wholesale purchase directly from 5 Star Barbarians, LLC if you are selling within the domestic and international hobby industry.  Some digital rights are available through IndieFlix.com. All other inquiries should be directed to russ@brothersbarbarian.com.  All other uses by commercial distributors are strictly forbidden and will be considered unauthorized copyright infringement. We will not deal with you if you use punitive DRM*, file bogus legal infringement claims on consumers, or have a history of retaining profits for yourself, rather than paying what is due to the creative artists you claim to represent.

*DRM

5 Star Barbarians, LLC allows DRM in very limited circumstances only. For example, Netflix uses DRM to protect its rental model. However, we are completely against the use of DRM in any product that a consumer purchases, rather than rents. If a case arises where Brothers Barbarian is made available through a third party that uses restrictive DRM (like iTunes or Amazon), or attempts to treat your purchase like a retractable license, we will offer the following guarantee:

PURCHASE BROTHERS BARBARIAN FROM ANY VENDOR WHO USES RESTRICTIVE DRM, AND YOU MAY USE YOUR RECEIPT AT ANY TIME TO REQUEST A SIMILAR, NON-DRM DOWNLOAD FROM US AT NO ADDITIONAL COST TO YOU.
