“This year, eSports events have sold out Madison Square Garden, the Staples Center and Key Arena, and television broadcast viewership often exceeded that of many traditional sports like baseball and hockey. The global games market will generate $100 billion in revenues by the end of the year,” Jeff Ifrah noted. “The industry’s meteoric rise comes with legal, social and regulatory challenges.”
Jeff Ifrah is to be joined by attorney Bryce Blum to discuss legal issues surrounding esports, with regards to finance, immigration, gaming, gambling and betting, cyber security, business law, advertising, and underage play. Also, Jeff will provide a general overview of the modern eSports market, discuss recent government and class action challenges, and provide outlook for the future of the industry.
