For the video game industry, strong intellectual property (IP ) laws incentivize the development of state-of-the-art devices and platforms and the creation of sophisticated and stunning video games for the enjoyment of consumers.
The video game industry creates some of the best known, most compelling entertainment in the world. Strong intellectual property laws, anchored in the U.S. Constitution, drive the creativity and innovation that make these video games possible. These laws incentivize both the development of state-of-the-art devices and platforms, as well as the creation of sophisticated and stunning video games for the enjoyment of consumers.
Video game publishers, device makers and online platforms rely on copyright, patent and trademark laws to ensure that players can seamlessly and securely play the video games they love in their homes and on the go. The video game industry supports the existing U.S. intellectual property regime and efforts to promote similar protections overseas so that creative and innovative works are protected, incentivized and delivered to players around the world.
