Gaming And Legal, When does your esports organization needs Legal Advice

My interview today is about Esports and how important legal is. Not only the contracting part but also having a legal expert advising you on things like for example; the name of the esports team and/or organization. Once you’ll find out the name was already taken as a brand, it is TOO late.  Who better as Justin Jacobson could update me!

Lots of people find the topic ‘legal’ boring when it comes to gaming, but I have come to learn that that is often not the case. Think about VISA for players, contracts for esports players, teams and their brand registrations, participating in leagues and so on. A bit of advice upfront can save you loads of headaches later on.
