Growing Games: Protecting, growing, and understanding the value of IPs
Note: This event will be in English
IP, or Intellectual Property, is a fancy word for the narrative universes that is an integral part of almost any digital game. But IPs can also represent significant value, as loved and well known universes, settings, or franchises, which gives them a value in themselves, in addition to the games they are part of.
At this Growing Games workshop, will will dig deeper into the concept of IPs, and give you knowledge and tools to help you protect, grow, and manage the value represented by the IPs you create.
As part of the workshop, we will examine the formal and legal definitions of IP, how you can work to protect your IP (in contracts etc.), how to work with IP that is not your own, how to strategically work with the value of your IP, as well as how you secure clear definitions of IP ownership with your employees.
