The future is always uncertain. In this roundtable, come join the IGDA Business and Legal SIG to talk about some issues facing the video games industry in the coming year. The roundtable will focus discussion on a few key issues including the Epic vs. Apple lawsuit, the use of cryptocurrency and NFTs in games, use of face scans and other data that might be considered biometric data under some statutes, China’s new data privacy law, and regulation concerning the protection of children. The discussion will be moderated, but mostly driven by participation in the room. The course of discussion will help inform the steering committee on directions for the SIG in the coming year.
