THE METAVERSE AND THE LAW: ASPECTS OF A NEW TECHNOLOGICAL REGULATION

Jesus Manuel Niebla Zatarain, Jose Ramon Bonilla Rojas, Luis Gustavo Kelly Torreblanca

Resumo


SUMMARY: The metaverse is a micro-cosmos where users interact with their peers in forms that not necessary replicate their behaviour on traditional scenarios. Nonetheless, this environment poses a series of challenges for the law, which requires a new perspective in order to properly regulate it and deterrent potential unlawful actions. This collaboration states that needs to adapt to the technical particularities of this platform to properly regulate it, reshaping traditional legal elements. Additionally, a closer communication between the legal and computational sectors particularly during the design stage is proposed to avoid unlawful operation of these environments.

RESUMO: O metaverso é um microcosmos onde os usuários interagem com seus pares de formas que não necessariamente replicam seu comportamento em cenários tradicionais. No entanto, esse ambiente traz uma série de desafios para o direito, o que requer uma nova perspectiva para regulá-lo adequadamente e coibir potenciais ações ilícitas. Esta colaboração afirma que precisa de se adaptar às particularidades técnicas desta plataforma para a regular adequadamente, reformulando os elementos jurídicos tradicionais. Além disso, é proposta uma comunicação mais próxima entre os setores jurídico e computacional, principalmente durante a fase de projeto, para evitar a operação ilegal desses ambientes
