Have Fun at the Game Developers Conference 2023!
If you are going to the 2023 Game Developer Conference I would like to draw your attention to a couple of things to keep in mind.
At GDC, you will probably encounter contracts related to game development, publishing, licensing, and other aspects of the industry. These contracts can be complex and often contain clauses that can impact your intellectual property rights, compensation, and other important matters. And if not at the conference, you are likely, maybe even hopefully, encounter contracts as a result of your participation.
A contract attorney can help you review these contracts and ensure that you understand the terms and conditions before you sign them. They can also help you negotiate better terms if necessary and advise you on your legal rights and obligations.
JOHN AND MORGAN recently helped physician in private practice that was considering bringing in a third party company to do some contract care. We reviewed the third-party contract and found a number of areas where the doctor had exposure to liability. We substantially re-worked the contract and protected our client.
In addition to reviewing contracts, a contract attorney can also provide guidance on other legal issues related to game development, such as forming a company, protecting your intellectual property, and complying with regulations.
Attending GDC can be an exciting opportunity for game developers, but it’s important to understand the legal implications of the various agreements and contracts that you may encounter. Consulting with a contract attorney can help you navigate these legal documents and ensure that your rights are protected.
Good luck and enjoy GDC. I, personally, am envious that you are going.
