LexisNexis and Butterworths has announced the launch of a new book, Video Game Law, which the company claims is the first ever book authored specifically on legal issues and problems facing the game industry. The title, written by Jon Festinger, counsel at Koffman Kalef Business Lawyers in Vancouver, explores overlapping issues of intellectual property (particularly controversial given recent discussions on game patents), communications, obscenity, employment, defamation, piracy, licensing, freedom of expression, tort liability, and more, and also includes a detailed Table of Cases. Some of the questions the book attempts to tackle include: 'Does reverse engineering infringe copyright?', 'Are there legal ways to backup games?', and 'Are publishers and developers responsible for the data they collect, use, or disclose in multiplayer games?', and more information on the book is available at the official LexisNexis website.
