Law, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality

Automatic ban if you get 85% angry!


What types of crime can be committed in VR/AR, and how should law enforcement and courts prepare for the growth in virtual interactions and VR social spaces, as well as the challenging questions over jurisdiction, consent, and ownership/liability for digital profiles in virtual worlds?

Do check out this fascinating working paper that discusses these topics, and much more. The final paper is soon to be published in the University of Pennsylvania Law Review and currently being serialized in the ‘Volokh Conspiracy’ blog on the Washington Post. It’s hard not to recommend a paper that covers Pokemon Go, strobe lighting, no-flight lists, and sex (of course), all in the context of VR!

  1. This article really resonated with me and that’s why I decided to drop a comment. When it comes to virtual reality, it’s really about personal preference and that is why I love the oculus quest 2 so much. I would urge your readers to try it if they are just getting into the VR world. It’s an amazing job you do here Kudos. I made a write up of the oculus quest if you wanna check it out.
