Indies and the Law

Or timeliest PA Report ever!

Not three hours after meeting with angel investors (woot!) to discuss an ongoing investment deal, Penny Arcade posted the most amazing article.  (actually they posted it before the meeting, I discovered it via twitter a couple hours after).  The article is a crash course on video game law.  Although not everything in it is specifically applicable to every situation, it is fantastic and helpful in the most common areas of legal trouble for indies.

The advice tracks fairly well to the ‘stages of game design‘.  There’s something for the pre company pretotyping/prototyping stages.  There’s advice for company formation, and intellectual property post company formation…  There’s a lot of great information in there, go read it.   Then mine is for great twitter accounts to follow:
