The focus of our consultancy services in the games industry are the games themselves and the platforms on which the games are offered.

Games

A variety of questions relating to copyrights and licensing rights arises when a game is developed. We provide comprehensive consultancy services in this context.

In addition to this, the question may arise in some cases as to whether a game is to be classified as a game of skill or as a game of chance. This has serious consequences, for instance on the eligibility of the business model for a license or concession. We therefore also support our clients in designing the games in a legally safe manner, often in cooperation with the competent authorities.


Our consultancy services in the context of games focus on the following areas:

  • Copyright
  • IP/IT law
  • Legally safe game design
  • Advice on business models in relation to online skill games as well as hybrid games, daily fantasy sports / DFS and eSports
Platforms

Also, we advise our clients on issues that relate to the platforms on which the games are offered. This many include the data protection requirements of the Düsseldorfer Kreis, youth protection law, consumer protection law, in particular the preparation and regular update of standard terms and conditions, or the implementation of the right to return and questions relating to advertising for games, whereby we also provide support together with media partners.

  • Data protection law
