About Me

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'.

Legal Issues Which Concern Video Game Industry (First Half of 2014)

Further to legal practice with an international law firm which has several video game industry clients on its profile with whom I already had a pleasure to work with, I would like to make a short summary of those legal issues which concerned video game industry most in the first half of 2014. This experience is supplemented by questions which I received (and answered) in friendly manner, generally further to speeches at conferences such as Winter Nights 2014 and others.

By this date I have identified EIGHT key legal ares to consider while launching a video game project. Click 'READ MORE' below to find them out (unless this post already shows itself for you in an explicit manner).
