Austin Game Developers Conference People's Choice Voting

I'm sure many of you know that the Austin GDC is coming up this September. What you may not know is that they have opened up the selection process for presentations to a vote. What you may also not know is that I have two presentations in the running. Both are lectures in the Online Games - Business and Management topics.

Emerging Legal Concerns for Online Games: What Every Manager Needs to Know
Speaker/s: Mark Methenitis
Track / Format: Online Games - Business & Management / Lecture
Overview: This presentation provides an overview of legal issues primarily facing MMO developers by looking at both the existing legal approaches and theoretical alternatives. These issues often apply to other online developers as well, especially those exploring new game and business models. Topics will include: Intellectual Property Ownership and Licensing, Interplay Between Real and Virtual Currency, and Online Gambling and the new Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act.

Legal Issues In International Game Publication
Speaker/s: Mark Methenitis
Track / Format: Online Games - Business & Management / Lecture
Overview: As a result of the Internet age, virtually every game released in the United States is released internationally to some degree. This presentation addresses the issues that face developers in releasing games in multiple countries. Topics of discussion include: International Intellectual Property Rights, International Taxation and Tax Treaties, International Media Regulation, International Trade and Emerging Issues in International Law.

So, if these topics sound interesting to you, or you would like to see me lecture at the Austin GDC in September, please go vote. And while you're there, check out some of the other presentations up for voting, especially if you plan to attend the conference.

Great blog, take a look at some of my preferred sites for slots and video slots, casino, play bingo online and bingo online. Or if you prefer the casino games section (my personal favorite) then this is for you. Great of you to take the time to check these sites if you love Keno, Mah Jong and other casino online games.
Some of these sites can be in a foreign language like Norwegian, slots and online casino games with video slots.
Free Mah jong, Mah jong solitaire, internet bingo and Bingo games, slots and online slots games.
Thanks for your time, be well!
