Video Game Developers
We can admit to years of playing games across multiple consoles and platforms from Atari, C64, Amiga 500, PC, NES, SNES & Megadrive, Gameboy & Gamegear, PlayStation, Xbox and more… we’re not shy in saying our lawyers have enjoyed gaming. More recently, we’ve looked at Axie Infinity, Sandbox & Decentraland to name a few…not just for fun, but to greater understand the legal side of such games and all things metaverse…
We’ve even tried our hand at esports and sim racing, in our very own playseat!
But aside from the fun stuff which assists us to understand our clients products and business, we advise video games developers and publishers on specific business and legal issues arising during video games development, as well as all aspects of commercial exploitation for Video Games and Mobile Apps.
This includes from ground up development, ensuring legal issues such as Intellectual Property Rights in video games, Data Protection, Publishing and licensing content issues are resolved at an early stage.
We advise on agreements with artists, musicians and licensing of third party content, End User Licence Agreements and Software Distribution and we have contacts with a variety of platforms to assist get content into the public domain at the best commercial rates.
We consider and advise on regulatory issues which can arise where clients are looking to monetise elements of their games, including when offering in game currencies or skins, and possible issues with secondary markets for those goods.
From Space Invaders to World of Warcraft, Candy Crush and Flappy Bird, if you have a game or a game idea for web or mobile and need some legal help to get it to market or the next stage of exploitation, we’re here to assist.
