More than Just a Game V – “The Role of Games and Interactive Entertainment in society” - London
5 APRIL 2019
As usual, the fifth edition of the More Than Just a Game series of conferences developed by Gaetano, gathered prominent legal professionals and researches dealing with Interactive Entertainment and encouraged the most interesting discussions.
Andrea has been contributing to the conference since its first edition in 2013 when, as one of the panels’ speakers, he touched upon EU anti-trust issues relating to the use of geo-blocking technology by videogame digital distribution platforms in relation to different transactional models, including the commercial agency model.
Andrea is a regular speaker of the More Than Just a Game conferences, and in this fifth edition he spoke about government interference and the increased relevance of regulations in connection with new videogame monetization models (e.g. loot boxes) and esports from an Italian perspective.
The conference was, as always, a success and provided great insights into the latest legal, business, technological and ethical challenges the industry is facing at the global level. It was also a great chance to have a taste of niceness and innovative thinking that characterizes videogame industry people.
