Intellectual Property

U.S. intellectual property laws provide important protections to ensure that video games continue to be enjoyed by the millions of gamers worldwide. Copyright law in particular aims to protect the creative contributions of programmers, developers, and artists, along with the millions of dollars invested by publishers to bring a game to market by providing creators’ the right to recoup these substantial investments.

ESA works with policymakers to maintain strong intellectual property protections and employs a variety of tactics to protect member company content from theft and infringement both in the U.S. and around the world.
