Virtual Reality…I Choose You! Examining Recent Legal Issues in Augmented and Virtual Reality
April 6, 2018 | 3:00–4:00 pm
IP practitioners are facing a challenging and rapidly changing landscape when it comes to virtual reality and augmented reality. Technological breakthroughs with augmented reality and location-based data, virtual reality, and the pervasiveness of "smart" devices in our everyday lives bring about legal issues that were once unheard of and/or unimaginable. Seismic events like the release of the mobile augmented reality video game Pokémon Go highlight the cutting edge legal issues that are at the forefront of augmented and virtual reality. Experienced practitioners in the field will provide attendees with the necessary tools to recognize and address the challenges clients and businesses may currently be facing or will be facing in the future.
