    The “metaverse” has become a hot topic over the past couple of years, with commercial activity ranging from “sales of virtual” real-estate, to virtual fashion items, and attracting significant attention when Facebook boldly renamed itself “Meta.” The term “metaverse” is loosely defined but generally refers to virtual or augmented reality and digital spaces, including videogames and other activities in “cyberspace.” The question is whether the metaverse requires quite so much attention from a legal perspective. Is this old wine in new bottles? Are there truly new legal issues? Or do we just need to get back to life and reality.
