About Me

My photo

Welcome! I am teaching law at St. Petersburg State University and engaged in legal practice with the international law firm Dentons. Major part of my research is connected to virtual worlds and massive multiplayer online games (a broad field which includes Internet law, video game law, virtual law and game studies). My legal practice is focused on providing support to computer game companies. This interest derives from my passion for computer games which I consider as one of the most important cultural artifacts ever created. Please note that this blog conveys my private opinion which is not necessarily shared by any organisations I am associated with.

The Next Update Will Be Soon

Dear friends,

Thank you for regular visits to my blog!

I was busy with a couple of professional matters. However, I managed to find some time and check The Secret World on the week-end.

I hope to come back shortly with several posts, including first impressions of this MMO game and some issues of virtual law.


  1. Waiting for your impressions (And hope to meet you there too!)

    1. I really hope that I manage to share my impressions before THEY get me.
