Molonglo Legal presents: Unfair contract terms & the video games industry

April 24 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

From 9 November 2023, significant changes to the unfair contract terms (UCT) regime in Australia came into effect, prohibiting businesses from proposing, using or relying on unfair contract terms in standard form contracts with consumers and small businesses. With the introduction of significant penalties, many larger business have already modified their standard terms, but what does the new legislation mean for small businesses in the gaming industry on the receiving end of standard terms and conditions?

 

James Fisher and Maryana Yako of Molonglo Legal will join us to discuss the changes from the perspective of a small Australian development studio, summarising the changes to the law and setting out some of the practical impacts and benefits of the revised legislation for gaming businesses in negotiating contracts. If you have questions, James & Maryana would welcome advance submissions where possible, or otherwise will take Q&A on the day. Please email all advance submissions to Maryana.

Registration is free but mandatory. Register here.
