On or about 7/5/2022, Falcon Rappaport & Berkman PLLC (FRB) and Metaverse Law Corporation (Metaverse Law) have agreed to resolve their dispute in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. As part of a global resolution, the parties have agreed that FRB can refer to itself as a metaverse law firm in a descriptive manner, given the proliferation and greater accessibility of the public into metaverse, Web 3.0, and virtual reality spaces. Nevertheless, the parties agree that METAVERSE LAW remains Metaverse Laws trademark and Metaverse Law maintains the right to prosecute any non-descriptive infringement of the marks use.
