eSports: Ongoing Legal Challenges

In recent years, eSports has become more than a simple fashion or a trend. It has become a real social phenomenon. Many factors (number of viewers, age of these viewers, number of gamers...) also suggest that eSports will, in a few years, be comparable to any other traditional sport.

But it is not a sport, or at least not a sport like the others. From a legal point of view, some analogies are possible. Other aspects are very particular, especially with regard to the environment of eSports, which is itself very different from the classic world of sports.

While many economic players invest in the sport, it is absolutely necessary that they know the legal constraints and opportunities of this new and changing world.

IP Protection, Investment and Sponsorship, Broadcasting and Online Streaming rights, Data, Electronic Security... The "eSports Legal Session" aims to address the hot debated on-going challenges that are specific to eSports.
