Jurisdiction and Enforcing IP Rights in the Metaverse
NFT sneakers and handbags have shone spotlight on IP disputes in the Metaverse. This panel of the WIPO Conversation will provide background and overview of the ongoing litigation. It will also discuss issues of NFT reminting, counterfeits, deep fakes and IP and focus on how to shape protection and enforcement mechanisms in the Metaverse. In a virtual world built on intangible assets and more and more complex IP landscapes there is much larger scope for disputes.
Juan Londoño speaks on dispute resolution mechanisms that may have a role to play in resolving some NFT and IP issues.
