WhiteThorn Games’ Publishing Agreement: An Indie Lawyer’s Review and Edits

WhiteThorn Games’ Publishing Agreement: An Indie Lawyer’s Review and Edits

In this talk, we will review the key clauses in WhiteThorn Game’s publishing agreement from a business and legal perspective. Intellectual property lawyer Michael Shortt will show you the edits that he would make to this contract during a real contract negotiation, and explain the strategy behind these edits. The talk will cover key clauses like revenue sharing, intellectual property, and termination rights, with a practical discussion of how indie developers can protect themselves in each case. Michael will compare the WhiteThorn Games agreement with the publishing contract that Raw Fury made available, and that Michael reviewed in an earlier GamePlay Space talk.
