The present paper seeks to conduct a comparative legal analysis by examining how the European and French legal perspectives regarding the notion of “esport” diverge or converge. It examines the methodologies used in practice based on legal transplant, influence and borrowing cross-sector at a global level, with views of finding a point of standardisation. It also seeks to identify the alternative practical avenues via which rights of different stakeholders may be protected where esport law does not exist.
