On this RPGBOT.Masterclass, we discuss the Open Gaming License. As the basis for 3rd-party creators to publish D&D-compatible products, the OGL is a defining document in the TTRPG industry, but the legal workings are often poorly understood. We invite Alex Kammer and Mark Greenberg to share their expertise on the history and foundations of the OGL.

This is nitpicky, yeah, but it’s the Open Game License. It’s a little weird hearing an expert / ex-lawyer misnaming it.
So I went back and checked. If you look at the first page of the OGL, it actually refers to itself as both the “Open Gaming License” AND the “Open Game License.” I haven’t gone back to check with one I used in the podcast. My guess is both.
