Virtual and Augmented Reality:
The European Union Approach
Global virtual and augmented reality market size was valued at $960.9 million in 2016. It is expected to generate an $80 billion market by 2025, which is roughly the size of the desktop PC market today. VR technology will be incorporated in widespread application areas, such as entertainment, aerospace & defense, commercial, consumer electronics, industrial, and medical fields. Faced with the development of this new technology, legal answers significantly differ from one country to another. These "immersive technologies" demand legal answers. The speakers will present the EU legal approach of this new technology in areas like data protection, intellectual property, patent, trademark, and copyright law . No doubt that the U.S. will not offer the same legal solutions as the EU countries. However, in a global world, U.S. lawyers cannot disregard how the European civil law system is endeavoring to cope with these vastly expanding immersive technologies.
