ABSTRACT

Metaverse is regarded as a next-generation platform succeeding the Internet. Metaverse will have a significant impact on our daily lives and will blur the distinction between the real world and virtual world. This also means that various legal disputes may arise in the metaverse in the future. In particular, the transnational nature of the metaverse may raise issues of the governing law and jurisdiction in the event of a dispute, so this article will examine the current terms and conditions of the metaverse platform, with a focus on jurisdiction in the United States. In order to explore the above, this article will introduce the general jurisdictional law of the United States and the jurisdictional law regarding the Internet, and then examine how these laws could apply to disputes arising from the metaverse platform. As there are not yet many metaverse-related cases, and therefore, no leading case or theory has been established, a unified jurisprudence shall be needed for future metaverse-related disputes to come.
