Touted as the next big revolution in the technology space, Metaverse will be our reality soon. From virtual concerts and gaming, to virtual attendance in offices, university and gyms, Metaverse has its endless use cases.

At NDA, continuing with our philosophy of “Anticipate, Prepare and Deliver”, we are proud to present our latest research paper titled “Metaverse: A New Universe”, to visualize and co-create the world of the future from a legal, regulatory and tax perspective.

The paper discusses not only the intersection of technologies (haptics, 5G, Quantum Computing, Blockchain, AR / VR, etc.) but also new age issues which may emanate from the adoption of such technologies (machine liability, avatar rights, IPR Ownership, NFTs, Cyber Security, Privacy, Digital taxation, etc.). In addition, the paper also focusses on key growth industries in the Metaverse.

We trust that this paper will be helpful for those who are already involved with the Metaverse, as well as those who are still exploring its terrains. We would be happy to hear your thoughts on this exciting space, including the technical, socio-political and legal challenges that the Metaverse is going to pose.

NDA has been actively engaging with and brainstorming in this space, and had organised a Metaverse Event at our Blue Sky Thinking & Research Campus named Imaginarium AliGunjan (near Mumbai, India), a glimpse of which is available here.

We also have a webinar on the Metaverse lined up as part of our Digital Summer 2022 series, for which you may register here.
