About This Course

With incredible graphics and lifelike presentation, videogames have captured our imagination - and a lot of our free time. But for people in the game business, it's not all about death matches or spawning Pokémon. Behind every new title is an important architecture of law and contracts. What do lawyers in the video game business need to know?

Topics include:

  • What laws apply to the video game business?
  • Which game elements are protectable?
  • Who owns what: developer agreements, distribution agreements and other key contracts.
  • Getting paid: license fees vs. participations.
  • Inspiration v infringement: How much copying is permissible?
  • Musicians, athletes, and historical figures - right of publicity traps to avoid.
  • Video game "speech" and the First Amendment.
  • Films, books and other ancillary projects.
  • A review of recent key cases.
  • And much more.
