Press Release – Metaverse Law

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 Law’s trademark and Metaverse Law maintains the right to prosecute any non-descriptive infringement of the mark’s use.

FRB is a full-service business law firm that combines the deep knowledge and understanding of attorneys who proudly advise clients seeking solutions to their most complex matters, including businesses and individuals working in cryptocurrency and NFTs. FRB has led the charge into the metaverse and opened a law office in Decentraland in August 2021 (located at Parcel 25, -125). FRB differentiates itself by approaching matters with a level of depth and variety of skills unmatched by typical advisors, following through on a firm-wide commitment to excellent service, offering access to thought leaders in numerous areas of professional practice, and engaging in a partnership with clients to develop and achieve legal, business, and personal objectives.

Metaverse Law launched in 2018 and is a California-based privacy, AI, and cybersecurity law firm. Metaverse Law assists startups to multinationals with their CCPA, GDPR, and other data privacy obligations. Metaverse Law is a proponent of decentralized virtual reality spaces (as opposed to the panopticon of a singular dystopian metaverse) and advises tech companies and law firms alike on consumer privacy, ethics, and good governance inside and outside of their metaverses.

And Then There Were Five…

Just last summer, in July of 2021, Colorado joined California and Virginia, and became the third U.S. state with a comprehensive consumer privacy law. The Colorado Privacy Act is set to take effect in July 2023.

Hot on its heels, and within just two months of each other, first Utah in March of 2022, now Connecticut in May of 2022, passed privacy bills which will become effective in 2023.

So far, California remains the only state which allows for a private right of action in connection with its privacy bill. For more information, please see our comparison of the current U.S. state consumer privacy laws below.
