Video game developers face a unique combination of legal issues and hurdles from initial concept, through development, and continuing through the release of each new game. This course provides an introduction to legal issues that arise in the development and production of video games and immersive entertainment. A key focus of the class is on intellectual property issues and their impact on the business and experience of video games. The class will also explore many other legal issues that video game developers, publishers, and players face. The course is relevant not only to those desiring to work with video game developers, but also for those looking to work with any new and nascent technology, e.g., augmented reality, virtual reality, movie production, and the creative arts.
