The video game industry may have been around for over a half century, but innovation continues to be the lifeblood of game development. With new, creative ideas being formulated by developers all the time, intellectual property like copyright, trademark, patents, and trade secrets are vital to protecting those innovations, and defending against claims of copying by others both within and outside the industry. Understanding what these rights are and when they might be available is important for both established developers, and up and coming start-ups.
Please join us for an introduction to the different kinds of intellectual property available to video game developers, as well as some discussion on the scope of those property rights and best practices to ensure those rights are being preserved.
