Games and eGaming 2020

We look at regulatory and market developments in the games and eGaming industries in the UK and Germany, and Wilson Sonsini looks at hot topics from a US perspective. We cover the games industry's response to lockdown and its impact on M&A, the ICO's new Age Appropriate Design Code, the UK government's response to the DCMS Committee report on harmful and immersive technologies, and the latest legal developments in Germany. Wilson Sonsini discusses the approach to 'modding' in the US and and looks at how games companies can become inadvertent money services businesses under US law.
