IamA Video Game Attorney (it's still a thing, I swear) who has been helping /r/gamedev get informed and protect themselves in an industry of thieves of bullies. AMA!
Why hello there Reddit. I usually spend my time over at /r/gamedev hosting a weekly AMA, informing developers of their rights, how intellectual property works, and a plethora of other things. I did an AMA last year that went really well and I can't wait to do it again now.
DISCLAIMER: Nothing in this post creates an attorney/client relationship. The only advice I can and will give in this post is GENERAL legal guidance. Your specific facts will almost always change the outcome, and you should always seek an attorney before moving forward. I'm an American attorney licensed in New York. And even though none of this is about retaining clients, it's much safer for me to throw in: THIS IS ATTORNEY ADVERTISING. Prior results do not guarantee similar future outcomes.
EDIT: Have a quick 330 meeting, then will be back to answer every single question just like last year. I'm usually the one showing up too late to an AMA to get something answered, so no worries of that here! (unless it's a repeat...I need to sleep sometime)
EDIT 2: Dammit, I meant thieves AND bullies. And you guys may win the war on answering every question, but I'm trying! Will do more in the morning as well after I am done tonight. And always feel free to email me at [email protected] if I don't get to you here.
