The video game industry is enjoying a boom period worldwide. Intellectual property (IP) – and in particular copyright – underpins the continuing success of the industry, yet the understanding and use of IP instruments of protection can remain a challenge. This publication outlines the practical business and legal issues relevant for video game developers and will thus improve their ability to get the most out of the IP system. Topics covered include: licensing agreements, music, distribution, mobile, regulation, confidentiality agreements, and more.
