Video games, the precocious offspring of the Information Age, continue to be the source of some of the most fascinating and challenging questions in law. In the second edition of Video Game Law, Jon Festinger, Q.C., Chris Metcalfe and Roch Ripley reveal how this burgeoning industry is creating more than games – it is posing fresh challenges for legal systems throughout the world. This work provides a comprehensive, clear and well documented overview of this rapidly expanding legal territory.
Video Game Law addresses the overlapping and emerging issues relating to IP, freedom of speech, employment, defamation, privacy, licensing and torts as they arise within the context of the video games industry, offering unique legal analysis and guidance unavailable elsewhere.
