VIDEO GAME LAWYER & INTERACTIVE MEDIA ATTORNEY
Cutting-edge technological advances are the norm in video game and interactive entertainment projects. Nevertheless, to be cutting-edge is to be increasingly vulnerable to legitimate and illegitimate competition. This is a substantive challenge, especially when your focus is so heavily centered on bringing your video game or interactive entertainment product to market, often with unrealistic deadlines. This makes securing your competitive advantage through appropriate legal safeguards a key consideration to your product launch and sale.
Legal issues pertinent to bringing video game or interactive entertainment products to market include:
- video game development agreements
- video game and interactive entertainment publishing agreements
- distribution and licensing agreements
- ratings for video game sales (M and AO)
- video game bans – excessive violence / sexual content
- illegal downloading / copying / piracy
- insurance / completion bonding
- online gaming / virtual world torts (host / server liability)
- virtual property rights
Just as your computer code cannot lack critical modules or result in sub-par performance, your business should not operate without capable, experienced legal counsel.
