Newport Beach Video Game Lawyers and Video Game Law

The last two decades have seen the video game industry expand at a rapid pace. Where there once was a landscape of only large publishers and developers, the recent markets such as app stores for smartphones (iPhone iOs/Android) and tablets (iPad), Xbox Live Arcade, Playstation Network, and STEAM for the PC and Mac have provided opportunities for a flourishing, indie games market.

Whether a creative or business talent, it is important in the ever-changing industry to have proper protection for your work and proper guidance for your business model. AV-rated* attorney, L. Scott Karlin, along with Michael J. Karlin and David E. Karlin, understand the business and intellectual property challenges you may be facing, and are prepared to help you.

The Karlin Law Firm LLP handles all video game law matters including:

  • Copyright registration and litigation
  • Trademark registration and litigation
  • Business formation (start up corporations and limited liability companies (LLC))
  • Licensing and distribution deals (Apple App Store / Android Market)
  • Contract Disputes (Breach of Contract, Non-competition Agreements / Covenant Not to Compete)
  • Marketing Agreements
  • Music licensing deals
  • Employment agreements (Hiring Agreement, Quality Assurance)
  • Property acquisitions (Content Ownership, Business Purchase / Business Sale)
  • Misappropriation of ideas (including Fraud, Misrepresentation, Non-Disclosure)
