NFTs, Metaverse, and More at ABA Business Law Section Annual Meeting

For those attending the ABA Business Law Section Annual Meeting (either in person or virtually), I have two upcoming events in DC:

The Digital Media, Gaming & Entertainment Subcommittee of the Cyberspace Committee invites you to attend our upcoming open committee meeting with the title New Media, New Regulators, and New Court

Friday 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM Eastern

Morgan, Lobby Level – Washington Hilton Hotel

Links for Virtual Attendees available via the ABA Website

Dramatic changes are occurring at the FTC, FCC, and among state regulators while new speech and federal agency decisions suggest a very different new gaming and media environment over the next decade. Streaming, social media, metaverse, NFTs and various modalities will be discussed in this context.

The meeting will primarily serve as a preview of the upcoming hot topics in the fields of digital media, gaming, and entertainment, including efforts to understand, transact, and regulate NFTs, virtual reality, AI-media, and more. We will discuss what participants are doing in the space, the latest legal issues and talk about upcoming projects such as webinars, publications, and more.

You do not need to have participated previously to join in, and lawyers from all fields are welcome to get a beginner’s dose of these emerging fields.

Also be sure to join us for the Bankruptcy Program: Lost in Tokenization: Legal Implications of Non-Fungible Tokens on Finance, Art, Property, and Culture on Thursday from 4:00 to 5:30 pm Eastern. This is an expansion and live presentation of a webinar hosted by our subcommittee of the same name earlier in the season.

The program features

  • Susan H. Abramovitch, Gowling WLG,
  • Professor Joshua Fairfield, Washington and Lee University School of Law,
  • Professor Jon M. Garon, Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law, and
  • Associate Dean Juliet M. Moringiello, Weidner University Commonwealth Law School Lee University School of Law

We look forward to seeing you at both events.

Feel free to reach out in advance with any questions or suggestions you may have!

Jon M. Garon, subcommittee chair
