Model License Agreement "Games": fair conditions for game authors!

The board of SAZ has decided to make its new model License Agreement for games available not only to SAZ members, but to all interested game authors/designers and publishers. In this way, we, as an interest group, want to help ensure that fair conditions for game authors are enforced as widely as possible. This model License Agreement has been completely revised in cooperation with our legal advisor and on the basis of our experience and updated again at the end of 2022.

Our position paper on the participation of game authors responds to this request, explains in detail the author rights and content-related reasons, and provides practical examples.
