15. Risks Associated with New and Evolving Laws Impacting Blockchain and Smart Contract Technology The blockchain and smart contract technology ecosystems, and by extension our own Game, are subject to a variety of state and international laws and regulations, including those with respect to consumer privacy, data protection, consumer protection, content regulation, network neutrality, cyber security, data protection, intellectual property (including copyright, patent, trademark and trade secret laws), defamation, child protection, and others. These laws and regulations, and the interpretation or application of these laws and regulations, could change. In addition, new laws or regulations affecting the AW could be enacted. As the Game evolves, AW may be subject to new laws and the application of existing laws to us might change. These laws and regulations are frequently costly to comply with and may divert a significant portion of AW’s attention and resources. If we fail to comply with these applicable laws or regulations, we could receive negative publicity and be subject to significant liabilities which could adversely impact the AW, the Game and Digital Assets, including Digital Asset’s utility for obtaining Services. The Game will operate in a new and developing legal environment. There is no established body of law or court decisions concerning blockchain and smart contracts, and the law regarding Digital Asset sales and cryptocurrencies is developing. As a result, it is possible that there could be legal disputes over the interpretation of smart contracts used in connection with the Game, thus undermining the functionality of the Game and Digital Assets. To the extent licenses or other authorizations are required in one or more jurisdictions in which the AW operates or will operate, there is guarantee that the AW will be granted such licenses or authorizations. The AW may need to change its business model to comply with these licensing and/or registration requirements (or any other legal or regulatory requirements) in order to avoid violating applicable laws or regulations or because of the cost of such compliance. Uncertainty in how the legal and regulatory environment will develop could negatively impact the AW. The cryptocurrency market is new, and may be subject to heightened oversight and scrutiny, including investigations or enforcement actions. There can be no assurance that governmental authorities will not examine the operations of AW or enact regulations or pursue enforcement actions against the AW, which may result in curtailment of, or inability to operate, the Game as intended, or judgments, settlements, fines or penalties against the AW. In addition, non-governmental parties may bring private legal actions against the AW, either individually or as a class, which may result in curtailment of, or inability to operate, the Game as intended, or judgments, settlements, fines or penalties against the AW.
