Welcome to Virtual Legality, a legal blog focused on virtual and augmented reality. VR and AR systems allow a person to experience computer-rendered scenes with real-world depth perception, transporting the user to a new reality.
The VR market is fast moving – every month yet another company announces their own foray into VR. Major corporations such as HTC, Samsung, Google, and Facebook are looking to situate themselves as market leaders early, and competition is fierce. Start-up companies eyeing a quick payday are abundant and growing in number.
Unfortunately, the legal system is not nearly as fast as the free market. The law inevitably struggles to keep pace with rapid technological advancement, and cracks in the foundation are beginning to surface. How the law reacts, if at all, will be documented and explained in this blog.
Whether you are an enthusiast of VR systems, or looking for insight into the inevitable court battles VR will produce, Virtual Legality will be there to breakdown complex legal filings and their impact on the VR market as a whole.
I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I enjoy creating it! If you have anything you are curious about or think would make a great article, please feel free to shoot me a message and I will investigate.
