VIDEO GAME BAR ASSOCIATION LAUNCHED

The NJ Law Journal reports today:

A worldwide association for lawyers specializing in video game law has been launched in Los Angeles. The Video Game Bar Association, founded on Feb. 8, is devoted to attorneys who practice in the video game and interactive media industries. “Over the years, the number of people whose core practice is in the games business has grown significantly,” said Patrick Sweeney, head of Reed Smith’s video game practice, who helped launch the new bar association. “And there is no organization that allows us to get to know each other and share ideas. The Copyright Society is too broad. … We want something more specifically catered to us.” Sweeney, one of five board members of the association, said it has invited more than 100 attorneys in North America and Europe to join its organization, which will host continuing legal education meetings and networking events at trade shows. The group’s kickoff meeting will be on March 2 during the annual Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, he said.
