Congratulations! Your game is a huge success. Hundreds and thousands of downloads. Industry accolades. T-shirts, hoodies, and lunch boxes. And of course, knock offs. You have put your blood, sweat and tears into its development. Now, with its immense popularity come competitors looking to take advantage of your intellectual property. Did you take steps to protect your copyrights? Does your game have unlicensed third-party content that might come to haunt you? Do you have the rights to your trademarks? From copy-cat games to counterfeit apparel to protecting potential movie rights, rivals may try to profit from your hard work. What can you do to protect yourself? What protections can you seek? How early should you seek protection? What can you do with that protection? These are just some of the questions that we will address while we discuss protecting trademarks, trade dress, and copyrights in gaming.
