Global Counsel, led by Senior Practice Director Conan D'Arcy and Head of Research and Insight Raph Malek has produced an original report on public attitudes to the metaverse, including representative polling, as well as interviews with thought leaders, across the US, UK and France.

The report reveals malleable attitudes to the metaverse and its regulation from both the public and regulators, but with key reservations around interoperability, online safety and data privacy. Businesses operating in the metaverse(s) will have to take into account the political brand issues associated with the ‘metaverse’ concept, diverging regulatory frameworks - with the EU and UK taking the lead on regulation versus a more market-driven US – and how policymakers will apply learnings from attempting to regulate the Internet 2.0.
