Q:What are common legal issues your team deals with?
A: The video game industry is a combination of entertainment law and technology law. You need to have a solid grounding in particular copyright and trademark rules and know your way around a license agreement both as a licensee and a licensor. We're constantly dealing with intellectual property that goes into our games.
Q:So does licensing take up most of your time?
A: Not for me. I have to confess what I have reserved for myself is being personally involved when we do something for the first time.
