Video game publisher Raw Fury has taken the unusual step of putting its publishing contract onto the Internet, and we couldn't be happier!

Join us for Part I as we look at some of the most important early terms in the contract, including ownership of the game itself, and restrictions on what the developer can and can't do with its current and future intellectual property.

This is going to be fun, so let's dive in.

Dissecting a Game Publishing Agreement; its a series that could only happen...in Virtual Legality.
