About the Discussion
The Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE)
and Legal Hackers
presents a discussion about eSports and the legal/business issues facing one of the fastest-growing markets in the world. With an influx of major brand sponsorships, the rapid growth of the industry has inevitably opened it to business and legal issues. Panelists will address critical questions about eSports, including: How is the industry constructed and does it show traction? How are players being treated and are the contracts that they sign fair? How can professionals and lawyers ensure industry equality, while at the same time not stymie the growth of eSports?
