EA's Code Wars Hackathon Returns

The EA Hackathon 2014 website is back online, offering a Code Wars competition for small teams to compete to develop winning apps and games in a limited time frame (thanks GameInformer). The contest launched late last year, but was pulled after concerns emerged that the rules gave EA too much license to use the entries commercially. This time around the EA Hackathon 2014 Rules and FAQ works to quell such fears:

Q: Does EA get to keep my code or idea?
A: No what you create is all yours, you own it. We have no intention or desire to use your submission for our business and we are not even keeping copies of the submissions after the event. However, due to the nature of the business environment we operate in, we have to take measures to avoid potential future conflicts for any user generated content created at our events. To address this, we ask that participants grant us a nonexclusive license as a measure of protection.

We know that there was some confusion and frustration around this policy when we first announced the event and we understand. We would assure everyone interested in participating that we have no intention to proactively use these measures or make money from your ideas. The measures are simply there for our protection.

The purpose and goal of Code Wars is simple: to create a fun environment, foster new ideas, and meet new talent to potentially join the EA team.
