Bigger than film, bigger than music, interactive entertainment is the worldâ€™s largest entertainment industry. The rise of online, mobile and social gaming especially means the video games industry provides excellent opportunities for business leaders and practitioners alike.
This burgeoning industry poses legal issues relating to data protection, privacy, the status of virtual goods and currencies and freedom of information.
Furthermore, from copyright and trade marks, to the ever increasing number of patent trolls in the industry, interactive entertainment raises a host of intellectual property issues which have led to a dramatic rise in IP litigation.
