IP Solicitors for Games Developers
Games Development – Publishing Deal Case Study
Our client business came to us for advice on a deal with a computer games publisher.
The draft contract presented by the publisher signed over all rights in the intellectual property created by our client to the publisher. We advised the developer to negotiate this to grant the publisher exclusive rights for the use it needed to make of the game and no more. Changing the fundamental basis of the deal meant that our client was the ultimate owner of the code and all other aspects of the game. This left our client free to manage the work it was creating as the IP assets owned by the business.
