At DPG at Law, my clients include software and video game developers and publishers working in PC, console, and mobile platforms. I have also worked with video game peripheral manufacturers, employees of large publishers, and more.
My office is located in Los Angeles, but I often represent clients throughout California and the United States.
As a lifelong gamer and personal computer hobbyist, I have a strong interest in video game and software law. I work with California and national video game, mobile app, and software clients by providing services such as:
- Licensing and rights clearance
- Publishing deals
- Trademark and copyright registration
- Initial business formation
- Employment law questions
- Work for hire contracts
- Advice on open source software
Some of my work in software has included:
- Helping a new independent game developer with initial business formation
- Drafting and negotiated a publishing agreement for an independent developer
- Creating music and rights of publicity licenses to clear rights for a new game
- Writing internal policy for a major video game publisher
- Reviewing software developer employment and work for hire contracts
I have also written popular articles on video game law ranging in topic from copyright issues to the impacts of potential new legislation and have lectured in open source software legal issues at California State University Northridge.
