Gamers confront copyright law

Professor Greg Lastowka of Rutgers-Camden Law School, in a press release earlier this week about his current research:

User-generated content can make a game very valuable, but developers have a legal obligation to look out for copyright infringement. I’m interested to hear from developers how concerns about copyright infringement affect the kind of games they create.

I’m interested, too, and glad someone is looking into it. I look forward to reading about his findings.
