With so many news stories covered this year, there were bound to be a few that needed updating.

Join us as we revisit the Dragonlance lawsuit; Duke Nukem, Gearbox, and Bobby Prince; the felony streaming bill (as incorporated in the 2021 appropriations package), and, of course, "Free Fortnite".

Where else can you get your legal news patch notes, but...in Virtual Legality.
