Delegates to the 5th Annual Game::Business::Law Summit, co-sponsored by the Institute for Law and Technology, The Guildhall at SMU and SMU Dedman School of Law, were welcomed to the summit by SMU Dedman Dean, John Attansio, on January 24. The summit, which brings together the technology, business and law of the video gaming industry, is now in its fifth year. The two-day 2013 program, chaired by Professor Keith Robinson, covers digital distribution and games as a service, crowd funding, financing, legal threats, the art of the deal, and real game pitches in action.

During the summit, the delegates will enjoy keynote presentations from Mark Long, the founder and CEO of Meteor Entertainment, and Burnie Burns, the co-founder of Rooster Teeth Productions. After a special screening of Indie Game: The Movie on the evening before the summit, those in the theater enjoyed a question and answer session with Edmund McMillen, one of the developers of the successful independent game Super Meat Boy featured in the movie.
