UKIE

Board Member


UKIE (formerly ELSPA) is the UK’s leading videogames trade body and its membership includes almost all major companies involved with the publishing and development of videogames in this UK.
 
UKIE rigorously defends the Intellectual Property rights of its members via its Intellectual Property Crime Unit (IPCU), which works with police forces and trading standards departments around the country to investigate and prosecute those involved with selling or installing circumvention devices, console ‘chipping’, copied videogames and more.
 
Additionally, the association is heavily involved in promoting safe, healthy videogaming for all comers and offers sound advice for players, parents and guardians via the website, www.askaboutgames.com. Their ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility programme includes partnerships with a number of the UK’s leading charities and youth organisations.
