Legal-Ease Goes to Phoenix Comic Fest
Our Legal-Ease team takes the time to have fun and talk about other issues that don't readily seem to be law-related. E-sports is one of those areas. The law covers so many areas, and these days E-sports is a specialized one many legal professionals don't look into.
E-sports, such as Overwatch, DOTA 2, and League of Legends have boomed over the past decade. Many gamers contract with professional leagues and play in front of millions of viewers all over the world in the hope of striking it big. But with the rapid growth of E-sports come a number of new questions: what legal protections are available for minors who want to play? How does current gambling and sports law apply in an area that the law hasn't even begun to explore? Join Legal-Ease as we explore these questions in depth and try to predict how this new area of the law may evolve.
Please join us at Phoenix Comic Fest if you are interested in hearing from current lawyers and soon to be lawyers about ways in which gamers can protect their interests as gamers as they venture deep into the esports arena with the likes of League of Legends and Overwatch. We have our invited guest expert, Cisco Maldonado, traveling from California to join us on this panel. Cisco previously worked as the Director of Global Brand Marketing at DC Comics and the Director of Trade Marketing at Warner Bros. Entertainment for over a decade, and he is now in the E-sports business. Come hear our panel if you are interested in discussing the legal implications vital to a gamer's success in esports and business strategies if you are interested in participating in esports as a business. We hope to see you on Sunday, May 27th 2018 at 10:30 AM! We will keep you posted with more details as we approach the date!
