Posted on

By Melanie Hodges Neufeld

Last Thursday (November 27th) the Law Society Library in Regina held a Christmas reception to express thanks to all our members, the judiciary, Court House staff and all those who help us help you throughout the year. It was well attended, and we had a lovely time chatting with familiar and new faces. Our Christmas book tree was a popular topic of conversation. Thank you to all who attended and we look forward to seeing you next year. Happy holidays!

Those interested in video game law should check out Video Game Law, 2nd Edition by Jon Festinger, Chris Metcalfe, and Roch Ripley.  LexisNexis describes this work on its website,

Video games, the precocious offspring of the Information Age, continue to be the source of some of the most fascinating and challenging questions in law. In the second edition of Video Game Law, Jon Festinger, Q.C., Chris Metcalfe and Roch Ripley reveal how this burgeoning industry is creating more than games – it is posing fresh challenges for legal systems throughout the world. This work provides a comprehensive, clear and well documented overview of this rapidly expanding legal territory.

Video Game Law, 2nd Edition addresses the overlapping and emerging issues relating to IP, freedom of speech, employment, defamation, privacy, licensing and torts as they arise within the context of the video games industry, offering unique legal analysis and guidance unavailable elsewhere.
