In episode 2 of our podcast, we talk to David “UltraDavid” Graham, an attorney with a concentration in media law and lifelong video game fan. We discuss his role as an on-air commentator for competitive fighting video game tournaments and copyright law.

You can learn more about David’s practice at dpgatlaw.com and check out his work in the fighting game community at ultrachentv.com. You can also follow him on Twitter @ultradavid.

Just to get a sense of how massive these fighting game competitions can be, check out this awesome video of the 2013 Evolution Championship Series, which drew over 1.7 million online viewers.

If you’re interested in hearing David’s commentary, check out this stream archive of Wednesday Night Fights, a fairly casual weekly series held at Super Arcade in Walnut, California. Jump ahead to around the 1:30:00 mark to watch him cover Super Street Fighter 4 with James Chen.

Bonus video: here’s a live demonstration of the Xbox One Twitch.tv integration feature we discussed at the end of the show, just so you know what we’re talking about.

Thanks for listening!
