According to the Resolution of the European Parliament on esports and video games (2022), there are different areas that require attention from the European regulator for the creation of a truly integrated European esports and video games sector. These include, amongst others:
- The need to safeguard esports from problems with match-fixing, illegal gambling and performance enhancement, including doping;
- The protection of data privacy and cybersecurity challenges, without losing sight of the esports phenomenon;
- Fair consumer monetization of video games through micro-transactions, in-game currencies and loot boxes to ensure robust consumer protection;
- The protection of video game IP and the cross-border enforcement of IP rights of game producers; and
- The ongoing battle against stereotypical representation of women in video games, and in general, the promotion of a framework for attaining greater equality for women in all positions in the value chain.
