Games Industry has been talking with the head of UKIE, Jo Twist, who claimed that it wanted to become more involved in discussions with developers and content publishers.
“We are very much involved in the debates around Intellectual Property,” said Twist. “Our industry has a very close relationship with gamers who drive our industry and we have led the way in supplying compelling content across all formats and constantly reviewing our business models. We are proud to have this relationship and want to preserve and build on the loyalty of all gamers.
“To this end we are announcing that we will host an industry debate to explore ways of positively building on the power of our products and services for game makers and players alike. This will happen in the coming weeks and will extend beyond our membership to all those involved in our innovative industry.”
