Hey, can someone from amazon comment in amazons stance toward personal projects? Do they have a waiver/process to maintain ownership of your own app?

    I left Amazon several years ago, but as I recall it was basically, 'dont use our resources and don't compete with us, then we won't fuck with you'

      The policy is the Game Development Policy (it’s on Inside under Legal). The survey is techsurvey.amazon.com, 2018 Q34 is about the policy.

      I think they've since changed the policy so it's more lenient, but I don't quite remember

      I assume the one on Inside is still in effect
