The term Metaverse doesn’t point to one particular place or thing. It instead refers to the broad concept of the digital world, including technologies like virtual and augmented reality, as well features of the digital economy like electronic currencies (e.g., bitcoin, ethereum, etc.) and assets existing through blockchain technologies such as non-fungible tokens. As the virtual counterpart to our world continues to grow, so too do the intellectual property issues and considerations that follow.
This program featuring Robert Weisbein (Partner, New York), Andy Lee (Of Counsel, New York), and Arian Jabbary (Associate, New York) is aimed to serve as a primer on the Metaverse and Web3, an introduction on how intellectual property rights relate to this evolving space, as well as practical tips and strategies concerning IP filing, management, enforcement, and more.
