Digitalisation | An Introduction to the Metaverse
NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and the metaverse have burst into the headlines over the last year. NFTs are selling for vast sums and being used to create new value. Meanwhile, many global brands are focusing on the metaverse, whether around creating it or being part of it in order to explore and exploit its potential. Given this sense of extraordinary opportunity, these technologies will no doubt be featured in many tech predictions for 2022.
But what are they?
Our two final Digitalisation webinars of the year will offer an introduction to NFTs and the metaverse, and explore the opportunities and legal issues that surround them.
This webinar will concentrate on legal issues around the commercial aspects of this emerging landscape, including intellectual property and the protection of value, the potential application of online harms regulation, and some of the digital infrastructure considerations around how the metaverse is built.
