* According to Dr. Maria Isabel Montañez
How many lives can we endure, what number of masks should we put on to face the loneliness of every day? It is true that all the things is cyclical, and fashions, tastes, conditions return to the fore in a new guise, however, deep down, they are the identical as earlier than.
Today you possibly can reside within the Metaverse, yesterday you possibly can reside a second life, these are completely different moments with equal experiences, do we wish this for ourselves or is it only a fad?
In each Second Life and the Metaverse, characters, or quite avatars, expertise making a parallel world equal to, worse than, or higher than the person’s precise reality. Cities, outlets, banks, workplaces are created making an attempt to recreate, innovate, be current within the client’s life. There is even a digital foreign money, each financial, social and private transactions are carried out, why not digital loss of life as properly? Many declare that the Metaverse will take care of the on a regular basis and be a part of our “reality”, I discover it troublesome.
Just like years in the past, with the appearance of the Internet, folks believed that this digital world belonged to nobody, that unlawful acts and abuses would go unpunished, and that the legislation might not attain the digital, which exists however does not exist. actual By mistake, the legislation is at all times hidden and permeates all conditions and issues of society, it’s unattainable to keep away from all the things that needs to be ethical and handy.
Several firms are betting on this new media, creating particular manufacturers for this reality and even selling their already established manufacturers in Metaverso shops and digital workplaces. It’s exhausting to think about that any form of battle could possibly be resolved in this digital world, in that case we would have legal guidelines particularly for this metaverse world, however that appears unlikely to me.
When conflicts come up, competitors and criminal activity would be the actual legal guidelines that shield the rights of the avatars and characters that inhabit the Metaverse, and it could not be every other means. The avatar inhabitant will probably be topic to all of the coercions and punishments of bodily legislation, and the primary fears of trademark abuse have already been realized;
“The Department of Justice and Public Safety introduced that it has performed its first search and seizure operation within the metaverse. It was part of the fourth version of Operation 404, which combats digital piracy and mental property crimes. Eleven folks had been arrested in 4 Brazilian states final Tuesday (21). 266 unlawful web sites in Brazil, 53 within the UK and 6 within the US had been additionally eliminated, and greater than 700 streaming apps and 461 music apps with tens of millions of energetic customers had been blocked, as well as to faux social media profiles and pages. . Many of the apps had the flexibility to steal person information equivalent to financial institution data, e mail, and so forth. the letters…” – Source: UOL.
The harm was within the billions of reais, and did the offenders consider that the legislation might not attain the Metaverse? Virtual has been current in our lives for a very long time, and present or case-by-case legal guidelines have at all times been in a position to “shield the great guys and arrest the dangerous guys”.
The authorized system is broad, mixed with rules ample to carry order to what seems to be dysfunction. Digital crimes are frequent within the bodily world, and now now we have one other world, one other type of media, to present fertile floor for these making an attempt to revenue by damaging and misappropriating different folks’s property.
To draw additional conclusions from the metaverse should watch for the passage of time, even the authorized emphasis can’t be disputed, as a result of for my part there is no such thing as a means to do this, the legal guidelines governing it are bodily and there are; there is no such thing as a means to suppose in any other case.
