Overview (Program Summary)

A program hosted by:

ACC San Francisco Bay Area

Once thought of as the stuff of amateurish virtual games, futuristic movies and imaginary science fiction, engaging in business in a virtual world or a metaverse is close enough to mainstream reality to mandate that we consider its consequences. Described as a shared, online, three-dimensional space where people can live, work, interact and connect virtually, these platforms pose incredible opportunities but also unending legal risks.

Join us for a 90 minute session where we will walk through a hypothetical example and have an interactive discussion about the legal issues that can arise. For example…

  • Are you reviewing your strategy for IP registration and protection in a global, virtual world — including if and where you register your trademarks?
  • How do you plan to manage the collection of personal data, and can it be monetized?
  • What do you foresee as your key revenue drivers/business model in a virtual environment? Have you considered which IP you may license for NFTs and the terms of such licenses?
  • With increased network security requirements by regulators, expanding vectors of attack and the heightened sophistication of cyberattacks, have you revisited your cybersecurity policy and data incident procedures recently?
  • Have you created specific terms and conditions to govern interactions with business customers and individual consumers using your products/services?
