Overview: Do you own your game? The third installment of the top-rated Practical Law for Indies series is here! Join indie game lawyer Chris Reid as he gives indie developers a practical understanding of copyright, trademarks, and other intellectual property relevant to game development. Chris will explain how these types of IP work, why indies should care, how they can protect themselves, and what practical tools they have when there's a dispute. Infringement, fair use (the internet's favorite topic), protecting game and company names, let's plays, and more. Chris will dispel common myths and bring indies the practical knowledge they need.
