Today we are delighted to launch our ‘Esports Laws of the World’ guide which gives a comprehensive review of the laws affecting the esports industry in 38 jurisdictions worldwide.
The massive and growing impact of esports is nothing more nor less than the wave of the future. These new competitions face many of the same challenges as traditional sports - issues which must be rapidly mastered. But what traditional sport has done through organic development over decades, esports must face immediately. The pace of change will be rapid and all this against a back drop of rules and regulations which often do not show an appreciation of, let alone address, these challenges. We will watch this sector closely and continue to contribute to the global discussion of this phenomenon.
