Copyright for Kickstarter creators – my new guest post on the Stonemaier Games blog
Inspired by an audience question at a GenCon Kickstarter panel, I wrote a new guest post for the Stonemaier Games Kickstarter Lessons blog.
In the post, I cover a number of questions that Kickstarter creators often have about copyright, including:
- What is copyright?
- How do you know that you’re infringing on someone else’s copyright?
- How can I make sure I own the copyright to all aspects of my game?
- Do I need a written agreement to own or license the rights?
While you’re there, do yourself a favor and read every other post on the Kickstarter Lessons blog. Even if you’re not raising money for your game on Kickstarter, there is a ton of info that relates to marketing your game in general, dealing with customers and other issues pertinent to any game developer!
Also, you can check out Jamey’s new book, A Crowdfunder’s Strategy Guide, and you can preorder it on Amazon before it releases on September 14. I’m very excited to see what Jamey’s come up with.
