Virtual reality is already a thing and raises many interesting legal issues. It will also be a key component to powering the metaverse. How do we regulate it? A digital twin is a virtual representation that serves as the real-time digital counterpart of a physical object, process or person.   


  1. Consider whether a person will be accountable for what their avatar does by understanding the governance framework.
  2. Contemplate how virtual IP, privacy and crime will work by hearing from an expert.
  3. Know who owns the data generated by the physical object by looking at data law.
