In this episode of Your Potential for Everything, host Alex brings on Ellen Zavian, a sports attorney, GWU professor, and Editor-in-Chief for esportsandthelaw.com and mylegalbookie.com. Ellen talks to Alex about esports law, sports betting, breakdancing, and skateboarding.
Ellen discusses the trending topics in the esports law industry along with how sports betting plays into the industry. They also discuss how esports are similar to the world of skateboarding and breakdancing as there are those who consider themselves athletes or competitors and those who consider themselves artists and not athletes.
The esports industry has many similarities to the traditional sports world, but there are some more complex issues that stem from the nature of the industry. The intellectual property rights in the esports world are quite complex and the labor and employment aspects of the industry are also multifaceted. Ellen does a great job of breaking these aspects of the industry down.
