Overview: Lawyers are the worst, right? Except when they're helping you decode the hottest, most recent, and most critical legal developments in the game industry! Join attorney Chris Reid (Practical Law for Indies Series) and a panel of game industry legal nerds (and actual nerds) as they discuss (or maybe fight about) the impact for developers of the most important recent legal events and issues in the industry, including things like the 'PUBG/Fortnite' litigation, Nintendo's stance on ROMS, the GDPR privacy regulation, developer takedowns of streamer content, legal action against cheat distributors and any other legal topic, no matter how fresh. The panelists know you love free legal advice, and while they aren't allowed to call it that, they WILL have plenty of time for all your burning audience questions. Stop reading posts that start with "I'm not a lawyer but...", and come get a clear understanding of how the law impacts your work in games today.
