Publication: Law for game development

04.11.2020

The video game industry faces a range of unique legal problems. In this publication we address issues of intellectual property, employment law, and taxation, as well as less obvious regulatory aspects.

The video game development sector has grown rapidly in recent years. With the spread of smartphones, new business models, and distribution platforms, the market for video games has taken off, becoming a key sector of the creative industry. Its growth stirs the imagination and appetite not only of game producers and publishers, but also of the biggest companies in sectors like IT and film, who are increasingly oriented toward the game market.

Across 70 pages, we  write about the use in games of objects from the real world, legal protection of games and concepts, in-game advertising, tax relief under the IP Box, employment in the game industry, and contract negotiations.

We invite you to read it.
