Brandon J. Huffman Speaks at TwitchCon 2018
In a presentation at TwitchCon in October 2018, Brandon J. Huffman joined four other speakers discussing fair use and how it relates to fan projects in the video game industry.
The overview of the presentation entitled, “That’s Not Fair Use and Your Fan Project STILL Isn’t Legal” –
Cosplaying? Making fanart shirts or prints? Did your VOD get muted? Have you been served with a DMCA takedown notice, or worse, a complaint? It’s not fun getting banned so come back to learn more from fellow geeks and gamers (who happen to be lawyers) about IP law and how it affects your hobbies. They’ll talk about the delicate balance that exists between fans creating derivative content and the creators of the original work and they’ll answer your questions about copyrights, trademarks, and other legal issues. These lawyers are fans too! They just want you to stay on the right side of intellectual property law.
