We are a group of video game and esports enthusiasts who happen to be lawyers. We met at PAX, GDC and other video game and lawyer conventions (yes, video game lawyer conventions are a thing) and have been speaking for years about legal topics near and dear to our digital pastime. We have topics we can talk about if nobody's brave: influencer advertising; loot crates; IP law; corp stuff; the rise of AI, crypto, trademarks; but we'd love to answer YOUR questions and give out legal info on video game and law topics
Note: We can't give specific legal advice; we aren't insured for that! Use hypotheticals, people!
First and foremost, we hope that attendees will find the discussion engaging and entertaining, a look inside the discussions video game lawyers have with their clients. But attendees will take away an appreciation of the myriad legal issues that arise when ideating, developing, or publishing games.
Anyone interested in the games business!
