Video games are now a spectator sport watched by millions. Not only are the players themselves earning millions to play, but they are even earning college scholarships and this new form of “sport” gains acceptance at all levels. This program will examine esports, including explaining the ins and outs of the ecosystem and the legal issues that now come with the territory:
- Intellectual property issues involved in creating an entirely new form of entertainment;
- Licensing and sponsorship opportunities being created and how they differ from traditional forms of media;
- Rights of privacy and digital security being raised by interactive entertainment; and
- Litigation that is testing this new form of entertainment.
