VIDEO GAME TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND END USER LICENSE AGREEMENTS (EULA)
Virtual reality, virtual worlds, digital items, freemium, mobile? We draft video game specific Terms and Conditions and End User License Agreements for these types of video game and more.
VIDEO GAME INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTION
From video game and studio names, to key characters, video games contain substantial intellectual property. We advise on the best ways to protect your video game studio’s intellectual property rights, from registering trademark rights to the game and studio name to registering the copyrights of key characters.
Has your game been pirated? Merchandise bearing your characters sold without authorization? We leverage the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), Cease and Desist Letters and other legal means to protect your intellectual property rights from infringement.
