Metaverse vs Reality: Intellectual Property Rights

The metaverse is a virtual space that mimics reality, allowing access through technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence. In contrast to the internet where browsers are considered an ‘observer’, the metaverse is a place where people can ‘live’ and be a part of a virtual space surrounding them.

A core benefit of this is the ability for users to interact and connect with anyone, from anywhere and in any kind of manner – such as from the comfort of one’s home to conduct gaming, exploring, shopping, and collaborating.
