Genesis of an Industry: The Emerging Workforce and Regulations of esports

 Did you play Pong, Pac-Man, or Mario? Imagine playing in a video game tournament for huge amounts of money, in front of thousands of fans, who are watching from around the world. Welcome to the wild world of esports. At the center of this frenzy are the "employees" of esports — the players who win championships worth millions of dollars. With complex affiliations to teams, organizations, and countries, the nearly 600-player workforce is raising questions about employment terms and labor management across borders and technology. By closely following this process, in-house counsel can learn lessons that will not only shape the employment law in this emerging industry, but also for other new industries that will follow.
