In this 2018 GDC session, lawyer Christopher Reid gives indie developers a practical understanding of copyright, trademarks, and other intellectual property relevant to game development, and explains how these types of IP work, why indies should care, how they can protect themselves, and what practical tools they have when there’s a dispute. This talk helps developers understand copyright infringement, fair use, protecting game and company names, let’s plays, and more.
