It’s No Game: Legal Issues in Esports

Daniel E Young, Seokchun Yun, Gyooho Lee, Tomohiro Takagi, and Matthew Wilson

This program will address several legal issues that arise in esports.  Panelists will discuss contractual and regulatory challenges both domestically and across borders, gambling, intellectual property issues arising from the use of artificial intelligence to create games and non-player characters that risk the possibility that portions of games will become part of the public domain, and problems that can arise in recording and promoting gameplay as permission is required to use the necessary software to broadcast gameplay.

This panel was presented at the Fall 2023 Asia/Pacific Conference on “Law and Technology in a Changing World” in Seoul, South Korea.
