Overview: The legal side of games isn't sexy, but it doesn't have to be scary. In this talk, indie game lawyer Chris Reid will give attendees a practical roadmap to the common legal issues that most developers will actually encounter. From setting up a company, knowing what contracts you'll encounter and what terms to look out for, to understanding the different types of IP in your game and tackling privacy policies, developers will learn why they should care, when they should be aware, and what they need to know to save money and legal headaches down the road.
