Konference: IP i Metaverse


Næste generation af den digitale verden

Metaverse er der, hvor virkelighed og virtualitet smelter sammen. I Metaverse kan man lade sig repræsentere af en avatar, etablere virtuelle fællesskaber og bruge digital valuta.

Da IP-lovgivningen omfatter både fysiske som virtuelle elementer, vil rettighedshavere skulle beskytte og håndhæve deres rettigheder i Metaverse nøjagtigt som i den virkelige verden.  

Deltag i konferencen, hvor fremtrædende internationale eksperter introducerer Metaverse som koncept og reflekterer over de udfordringer, som det eksisterende IP-system kan blive mødt af i Metaverse.
