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'.

Slideshare: Legal Aspects of Social Networks

I registered with the Slideshare today which looks like an extremely useful service for sharing (and finding) presentations on every topic possible.

What I uploaded is a brief presentation delivered at a theoretical seminar on legal aspects of social networks. This time it is Russian-only, but most likely I will write more on this topic in English later this year. You may find the presentation here

Note that Slideshare seems to not support animation in presentations, so I excluded it from the last slide which was supposed to show that social networks are one step behind from virtual worlds in terms of how much problems of Internet law they congregate.

Besides, my second thought further to this presentation is that what was addressed by 'legal aspects of social networks' more properly shall be addressed as 'legal aspects of WEB 2.0'.
