What happens when you try to mash up lawyers and video games? Sometimes you get the misadventures of Phoenix Wright (who, by the way, would be disbarred if he practiced that way in America). But on April 21st, you get the 2011 panel on Legal and Business Trends in the Video Game Industry hosted by New York Law School’s Institute of Information Law & Policy.
Moderated by Dr. S. Gregory Boyd, Attorney at Davis & Gilbert LLP, NYLS Adjunct Professor and faculty advisor to this blog, we will hear from Take-Two Interactive, Majesco Entertainment, and the ESRB about the rise of social games in the marketplace, the evolution of ratings in a world of digital distribution, changing demographics in the game industry, and the future of “core” games in the new marketplace.
Our speakers include:
Take-Two Interactive - Seth Krauss, Executive Vice President and General Counsel
Entertainment Software Ratings Board – Evie Goldstein, Senior Vice President and General Counsel
Majesco Entertainment - Adam Sultan, General Counsel and Senior Vice President of Business and Legal Affairs, Head of Product Acquisition, Licensing and Strategic Partners

Time: 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. (with Q&A and cocktail networking reception, sponsored by Kenyon & Kenyon LLP, to follow)
