Intellectual Property Corner: An article on the convergence of videogames and feature films

David Smith's article points out that the video game industry earned more money last year than the motion picture industry. It also highlights the intellectual property moves made by directors such as Peter Jackson, Ridley Scott, John Woo, George Lucas as well as Andy and Larry Wachowski to retain artistic control and video game rights.

As an avid video gamer, I am very impressed with the level of detail exhibited by some video games. I especially like Take Two's Grand Theft Auto series of games.
