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. For more formal and detailed introduction please visit my website arkhipov.info which serves more as a 'business card'.

Less Frequent Updates

Dear friends,

Thank you again for regular visits to my blog!

As anyone who has read my introduction post might have expected, September brings much more responsibilities. This is great, but a side effect is that this reduces my blogging opportunities.

However, I will do my best to stay online during the teaching period.

While I am away from home, the clients of several online games I missed (including Lineage 2 and Aion) are being downloaded through my new 20Mb/sec modem. Trying these games should help me to fill certain gaps in my MMORPG knowledge, and probably come back with some general analytical post.

Have a nice fall!
