About this Event

Doors/Lunch: 12:00 // Talk: 12:30 // End: 1:30

Lunch will be provided. Please DO NOT arrive early.

This lunch and learn is a top-to-bottom walk-through of an “indie-style” publishing agreement. We have assembled a mock publishing agreement based on multiple indie contracts that Fasken has worked on recently, so that you can see the types of clauses that actually occur in real-world contracts. We will go through that contract clause-by-clause and comment on what works, what doesn’t, and what developers should look out for. Attendees will come away with a clearer understanding of how to read and negotiate publishing contracts, and how to protect their revenue share and IP.

Places are limited so you MUST RSVP in order to attend!
