Video games are a multi-billion dollar market. Almost every aspect of a video game can be subject to intellectual protection and, as games continue to develop in complexity and realism, new protection and infringement issues arise. Mitchell Feller, a principal at the law firm of Gottlieb Rackman & Reisman, will discuss how intellectual property rights, including copyright, trademark, rights of publicity, patent, and trade secrets, are applied to video games. He will also address recent IP disputes and challenges faced by game developers.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss how intellectual property rights can be applied to different aspects of video games
  2. Explore recent IP infringement disputes involving different aspects of video games
  3. Recognize IP issues in game development and identify common pitfalls and best practices
