Question About Skill

Yo, we wanted to make a skill that was based upon some ideas that are found in a show.

Is this allowed or would this breach copyright?

    Hey -

    That's a little vague to give a really good answer, but here are some general points:

    - You can't use any logos, artwork, etc. that are trademarked without written permission in your Devpost materials and possibly in the skill certification process
    - You CAN use "Unofficial" in the skill name if it is similar to something real (https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Dalexa-skills&field-keywords=unofficial)

    My advice would be not to wait until the last minute in case you do need to make changes to get certified. Hope this helps!

    I cannot find the notification interface. I believe this is granted by application bases. How can I get access to the interface? Is there a special portal for this hackathon? I have an awesome idea, but I need the notification interface to implement it.

    Hi All - I'm waiting for some more information, but I do not think they will be able to get hackathon participants into the current notification program. I strongly recommend building without it for now and coming up with a workaround.

    Once I have more info (like possibly where you can apply for access in the future) I'll definitely let you know. For now, assume we cannot get you access in time. Sorry about that!
