Twitch – 21.05.2020.
Given the explosion of the esport scene, the law of cheating in gaming is becoming a real legal subject. Indeed, the impact of a violation of the rule can now be considerable.
Thus, both players and competition organisers are faced with new legal issues.
What is the legal value of a sanction pronounced by an organiser? Are organisers and editors subject to constraints in defining the rules of their competitions or games? Does a player banned for cheating have any means of appeal? What is the responsibility of a producer or seller of cheating software?
Were present to discuss these fascinating questions and answer questions from the audience:
- Désiré Koussawo, Managing Director of ESL France, Honorary President and co-founder of Futurolan ;
- Geoffray Brunaux, Senior Lecturer in Private Law, Head of Digital Law and author of the book “Le jeu vidéo, un objet juridique identifié“;
- Antonin Paillet, lawyer at the Seine-Saint-Denis bar and member of the association Les Maîtres du Game.
The event (in French) is to be reviewed on the association’s YouTube channel.
