What AJ Learned About Machinima Law Today

Today kicks off Stanford University's Play Machinima Law Conference with panels of machinima artists, copyright lawyers and legal representatives from Blizzard, EA and Microsoft.

Machinima is one of those hazy areas of artistic expression not quite covered by copyright law and not quite insignificant given how many people have jumped on the bandwagon. Kotaku first covered the topic back when the New York Times Magazine did a piece called "Xbox Auteurs" that loosely touched on successful ventures like Red vs. Blue and Strangerhood. Since then, we've seen everything from filmmakers to Family Guy writers getting in on the machinima scene.

The story is too old to be commented.
