Metaverse

The latest legal insights and developments on the metaverse, NFTs, web3, cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.

Everyone is talking about the metaverse

The metaverse, an immersive, digital alternative to the physical world, is where virtual avatars come together to work, pursue hobbies, shop, play, or otherwise gather to engage communities and explore the digital space.

It will be the 3-D successor to today's internet and represents a completely new way for us to connect with each other. Many hope that the promises of decentralisation and interoperability that the web3 space brings will be deeply ingrained in this future.

As the metaverse evolves we'll cover the legal issues and developments that surround this exciting new technology, spanning topics such as Data, IP and Employment, not to mention how investors, start-ups and brands can capitalise on the opportunities it presents.
