Article VI: Code of Conduct
The Rebel Legion recognizes that its costumes represent characters from the Star Wars saga, and all members are expected to portray those characters in a tasteful and professional manner any time they are in costume. Membership and costuming is a privilege, not a right. Legion members are expected to be courteous and respectful towards their fellow members, the greater Star Wars community, and the general public. Legion members are also expected to show respect for all users/visitors to the website, respect all opinions of users/visitors to the website, and comply with policies and procedures. Failure to do so may lead to disciplinary action.
1. Members must not use foul language, obscene gestures, and the use of alcohol or tobacco is prohibited while in costume and in view of the public, especially children. However, any convention or gathering where adult content is prevalent and/or is not considered an official Rebel Legion event, these standards may be relaxed.
2. In accordance with directives from LucasFilm, Ltd., members must not use their Rebel Legion-approved costumes for personal profit, either within or outside of the Rebel Legion. This includes, but is not limited to:-Paid Appearances (which have not been approved by Lucasfilm or their partners)
-Selling photographs featuring a Rebel Legion Costume
-Selling merchandise with photographic reproductions of member in Rebel Legion costume (i.e. t-shirts, messenger bags, or calendars)
-Rent/lease any Rebel Legion approved costumes. Compensation: Members may be compensated by the event host/organizer for out-of-pocket expenses incurred from participation in Rebel Legion events, but this may not exceed their expenditure (including but not limited to water, gas reimbursement, snacks/meals, park passes/entry to events). They may also receive non monetary donations (including but not limited to water, snacks/meals, park passes/entry to events), but these items are for personal use & not to be sold for profit.b. Costume Contests: Entry of Rebel Legion costumes into contests is permitted. Any awards/prizes may be retained, as they are not guaranteed for participation.
c. Television and Film: The Rebel Legion recognizes that members must be paid for select television and film work due to labor laws. It is the responsibility of the production company, not the member, to obtain any necessary permissions to use the Star Wars IP. However, Lucasfilm requests notification from our members regarding any television or film production seeking Star Wars fans as costumed participants.
d. Third Party Sales: If member did not grant permission, unauthorized items sold by a third party do not constitute a personal profit violation.
e. Charity Sales & Projects: The Rebel Legion does not have the authority to approve charity fundraisers outside of legion events/projects. If a member would like to use their costume for a personal charity fundraiser project (ex. selling costume photo prints), they must apply for a letter of agreement through Lucasfilm. An application form may be obtained from the Rebel Legion CO.
3. Members must never maliciously disparage any fellow costumer, fellow member of the Rebel Legion, or other costume clubs or their members in public, on the Rebel Legion forums (beyond forum permissions that an Active Member requires) or on websites on the internet that are open to the public. Members may not make disparaging/ malicious attacks on fellow members about Legion business on our sister groups websites and/or social networking/blogging sites.
4. While acting as a member of the Rebel Legion, members must not deliberately/maliciously cause ill will within our club or in the Star Wars community that may endanger the Rebel Legion’s reputation and working relationship with other Lucasfilm approved entities.
5. Members must always show respect and appreciation to those who wear real uniforms for our safety: our military, police, fire fighters, and paramedics.
6. The Rebel Legion will not tolerate discrimination on the grounds of sex, race, religion, creed, nationality, sexual orientation, age (as long as the minimum age of at least 18 years or higher if required by local law has been reached), or physical handicap.
7. The Rebel Legion will not tolerate the practice of sexual misconduct or sexual harassment by any of its members. This includes unwelcome conduct that violates applicable local laws concerning sexual harassment and inappropriate conduct of a sexual nature.
8. Acting in a threatening or violent manner, theft, and illegal substance abuse are all prohibited, as they are unacceptable behavior in a professional environment.
9. Members who use any Rebel Legion Website, forum, or mailing list will obey the rules and regulations set forth by the site administrators.This includes, but is not limited to:
a) Members must not post private emails, private messages or other members personal information without their consent outside of disciplinary hearings.
b) Members must not share passwords or login Ids.
c) Members must not share information from private forums with users not in the closed group.
d) Members must not use the Rebel Legion Website and/or forums for personal conflicts.
e) The Rebel Legion website, forums, and mass email system are to be used for items of club business.
f) Members with moderator privileges are expected to use those privileges courteously and only as needed to keep the website and forums family friendly, up to date, and organized.
It is generally outside the scope of this club’s jurisdiction to discipline members for their behavior outside of Rebel Legion activities. However, the Legion Council reserves the right to punish members for their actions in accordance with the above Code of Conduct. The decision to discipline members for their actions outside the Legion is at the discretion of the Legion Council.
While separate and individual websites are allowed, they are not a venue for members to violate the Legion’s Charter or policies. This Charter in full or part, and all Legion policies must still be upheld in all separate and individual unit websites. Any members who violate the Legion Charter, Legion policies, or unit specific policies on individual websites will be subject to disciplinary action.
Any member who violates the Code of Conduct will be subject to disciplinary action, which may include termination from the Rebel Legion.If a member violates section two of this article, they will be asked by the Legion to cease and desist (C&D) immediately, unless they can produce a letter from LFL/Disney granting permission of use. Compliance with the C&D for a first time offender will result in no further disciplinary action but the warning will be put on record (to avoid repeat offenses). Non-compliance with the C&D will result in disciplinary action. (See Article VII: Disciplinary Actions)
