Okay this is a beginning piece of work which I will be editing into a full shape over the next month (i.e. sufficient time for anyone who wants to get a post in) as time goes on. What I am interested in is Appropriate (i.e. game development related) terms, useful links, corrections etc. I am not interested in recreating a legal dictionary what I am interested in is creating a very swift reference. Certain things like copyright, trademarks, patents are covered in the FAQ but probably not deep enough in my opinion

By the end of May I basically plan to have this section of the thread re-edited to the point of Titles, a brief description and useful set of links (pref. no more than 3 per term).

NOTE: This does NOT constitute legal advice. This is merely meant to act as a resource aid.

SECTIONS (so far)
