Video Games, Mobile Apps, and Software Law

At DPG at Law, my clientele includes developers and publishers creating video games and other software for consoles, mobile platforms, and PC. I have also worked with video game peripheral manufacturers, employees of large publishers, and more.

My practice is based in Los Angeles, but I often represent clients both nationally and internationally.

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:

  • Initial business formation
  • Employment and independent contractor agreements
  • Licensing and rights clearance
  • Publishing deals
  • Trademark and copyright registration
  • 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 legal articles on video games and software ranging in topic from copyright issues to the impacts of potential new legislation and have lectured in copyright law for software engineers at the University of Kansas and open source software law at California State University Northridge.
