Prime v Progressive: An IP Battle That Will Shape the Gaming Industry
The Importance of Intellectual Property Rights as a Regulatory Concern
The two above articles have been published in the Spring 2008 edition of Casino Lawyer magazine, a publication of the International Masters of Gaming Law.
Prime v Progressive: An IP Battle That Will Shape the Gaming Industry was written by Robert Rowan of Nixon & Vanderhye, the law firm that represented Prime in this litigation. Rowan takes the reader through this landmark court battle, from the shocking first phone call to the final dollar amount.
The Importance of Intellectual Property as a Regulatory Concern was written by Derek Webb of Prime Table Games. Webb tells all about the intellectual property revolution. As in previous revolutions the law has not always kept pace with economic change.
The Casino Lawyer Editors Notes advise that the two articles should be read in conjunction. The Webb article explores the growing importance of intellectual property in the gaming industry and the potential regulatory response. The Rowan article is a real-life case study to complement the Webb article.
