Flash Report - European Games Developer Federation - 10/03/2015 
Please, for registration in ARES 
I received yesterday  [Art. 4.1(b)]
, COO of the European Games Developer 
Federation (EGDF). Object of the visit was to touch base on TTIP.

[Out of scope]
[Out of scope]
-  We explained the state of discussions with respect to the notion of AV services
as well as the consequences of being considered, or not, as covered by the AV 
exception
 Æ EGDF would prefer that there is no closed definition of "AV services" 
in the agreement, in order to cater for future developments. 
[Out of scope]
-  EGDF had 2 main concerns to put forward with respect to TTIP: 
o If the agreement enshrines the concept that games are software, this may
have consequences with respect to their State aid status;
o Interested to know how much State aid the EU negotiates with the US.


 f
[Art. 4.1(b)] inally referred to Patent Trolls as one of their main substantive 
concerns in the US - forcing EGDF members to spend substantive money in Court 
cases.
