Managing all the specific elements in video games is a real challenge when it comes to intellectual property protection. Intellectual property rights are essential in the development, financing and distribution of video games and apply to both the tools used in game development and the content included in the game. With current technological advances, games can be as diverse as the imagination of their creators, and include audio-visual content, realistic graphics, voice synchronization, use of motion capture technology, original scripts, trademarks and other original works.
The value of the video game market in the world reached almost 200 billion USD in 2021, and for this rapidly growing branch of the industry, it is predicted that the value in 2026 will be around 330 billion USD and that the number of gamers will soon reach three billion, which indicates that video games represent a very important field for social interaction.
