Session Name Crowdfunding for European Indies: A Legal Perspective
Speaker(s) Alex Chapman, David Hoppe
Company Name(s) Sheridans Solicitors, Gamma Law
Track / Format Business, Marketing & Management
Overview Crowdfunding continues to grow at a dramatic rate, and in 2012 more dollars were pledged to video games than any other category on Kickstarter. At the same time, regulations governing crowdfunding in Europe and the United States continue to develop, with some jurisdictions emerging as preferred venues for online fundraising and others where crowdfunding is still restricted. With implementation of new liberalized crowdfunding regulations in the United States expected soon, European indie developers need to understand the opportunities and risks of crowdfunding in the current legal environment, both at home and abroad.
