Game::Business::Law Summit at SMU

The gaming industry is going through radical transformations thanks to motion controllers, gesture recognition, 3D, digital distribution, social gaming, etc. The Supreme Court is also expected to rule on Schwarzenegger vs. EMA (Entertainment Merchants Association) in the next few months. If the Court decides to uphold the law, such decision will create stricter rules for game distribution.

In the midst of all these changes, it has become more and more difficult for game developers and publishers to navigate through different business models and to find the best monetization model for their games.

The Guildhall at Southern Methodist University in Dallas has organized a Game::Business::Law Summit, taking place Jan. 26 – 27, 2011. Several panels will investigate the current state of the industry, the implications of court rulings and the effect of emerging trends such as privacy protection and digital distribution.

We will be there and look forward to reporting about the summit.
