Cases Show Real-World Laws Likely Apply In Metaverse

January 25, 2023 • Webinar • CLE Offered

Starts: 2:00 PM (ET)
Ends: 3:00 PM (ET)

Endless articles rattle on about the brave new world of the metaverse, as if it’s an unprecedented step for commercial and social life. As lawyers, however, we know that there is precedent for everything. This presentation looks at the legal precedent that will likely inform the development of metaverse law. We will look at virtual-world cases involving both common law and federal law. We’ll also look at the pockets where virtual-world caselaw has yet to be developed and consider what types of precedent will fill those gaps. Finally, we’ll discuss what this all means for practitioners who hope to guide their clients in the metaverse.

Key topics to be discussed:
Virtual world’s case law that lawyers counseling metaverse clients should know
Where caselaw in the virtual world has not developed, and what precedent will likely fill in
How practitioners can effectively channel this precedent to support metaverse clients
