The use of video games, virtual worlds and interactive entertainment is exploding. Their features and applications are richer and more complex than ever before. But this dramatic expansion has created a legal minefield. Intellectual property protection and infringement, user generated content and user interaction, online safety and privacy, advergaming, and virtual currencies all present unique challenges.

Join us for an evening of discussion and insight with in-house games counsel as we explore the issues and identify best practices for addressing them.
