Law-ification Presentation @ Full Indie Summit 2014

For anyone who wants my take on a broad variety of issues video game developers might be interested in, this video which is a bit over a year old (but only recently posted to YouTube) might be helpful.


Class 2 – 9/16/15: “If Picasso had painted a round object..” & Erin Fields, Richard Tape, Patrick Pennefather

For the lip-readers among you….

The audio did not work even though the microphones did. Perhaps I was being too critical of the U.S. Copyright Office in Atari v. Oman (though in strange twist of fate I did suggest that things might be better for creators had they prevailed). In any event I am posting the video for posterity. The not inconsequential advantage is that Patrick Pennefather’s slides are included right up front.
