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.
