Event description

Description

Speaker: Dan Nabel

In 2017, the U.S. Department of Commerce observed that video games now generate more revenue than movies, music and books – combined. In the past few years, Candy Crush surpassed 400 million active monthly users; Supercell generated more than $5 million per day from free-to-play games; and Grand Theft Auto 5 outsold the entire global music industry, by itself, in September 2013, earning $1 billion in its first three days of sales. Even watching video games has changed dramatically. More people now watch the League of Legends finals than the NBA finals. Few, if any entertainment industries, have brighter futures.

On March 13, 2019, we will hear about cutting edge copyright issues from recent and ongoing video game cases from Dan Nabel, Principal Counsel at Riot Games. Professor Nabel teaches Video Game Law at USC Gould and co-authored Video Game Law in a Nutshell (West Academic, 2018). He began his practice as a litigator at Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger and served for a year as the director for USC Gould's Intellectual Property and Technology Law Clinic before moving in-house.
