IP Challenges in Metaverse – Trade Marks
Facebook’s recent name change of its holding company to Meta Platforms Inc has drawn the general public’s attention to “metaverse”. This concept has been around for a number of years and has regularly been featured in movies ranging from “Tron” (1982), “The Matrix” (1999) to “Ready Player One” (2018). Mark Zuckerberg describes a metaverse as “a virtual world where people will live, work and play.”
With the advancement of hardware and technology proliferation, the metaverse will likely become part of our day-to-day lives in the next couple of years.
