Session Name:

Practical Contract Law 201 for Indie Developers: Moderately Scary Edition


Don't sign that! ... yet. Join games lawyer Chris Reid in the follow-up to last year's #1 rated Summit talk, as he walks indie developers through the single most common legal issue they will encounter: contracts. IP, privacy, licensing, distribution and almost every legal issue important to developers is handled with a contract. Chris will cover the five contracts every indie needs to understand: contractor agreements, publishing agreements, game development agreements, NDAs and EULAs. For each type of contract, he will describe when it comes up, why it matters, and what terms to include and avoid. Now you can sign.
