The definition of the term “reality” is subject to change from time to time with the advancements in technology. Earlier people saw the world in two dimensions and later it evolved into 3D to give viewers an immersive experience. Immersive experience can be defined as one where movies allow people to submerge into the character’s life and the way the story pans out to produce an otherworldly perspective and an experience like never before. From the late 20th century till date, people have become weary of social interactions and they do not have the dynamism to indulge in real life conversations with people they meet in their day-to-day lives. This was also due to the limits put forth in the actuality. But with the introduction of Metaverse and crypto currency reality has now shifted to an online world where one can indulge in boundless communication with people around the globe by negating physical distance and upgrading the social media platform. No matter what the advancements are, there arises a need for a balance between maintaining the interests of the social community and development in technology. Problems originate in multifarious forms when people from diverse ethnic groups intermingle together in a single online interactive media platform. Discrimination on the basis of caste, creed, sex and religion could easily be instigated. Metaverse could potentially be so realistic so as to create complete suits which could enable viewers to have a complete perspective of the happenings in the virtual reality and this could cause criminal activities such as rape and molestation to occur. Data piracy is the next big threat whereby loads and loads of information are stored using block-chain technology which although companies claim it be safe, is always susceptible to piracy. So addressing legal issues in this particular field is of preliminary importance. This paper is an empirical attempt to realize the legal issues from experts in the field and do extensive research on the advancements that Metaverse could potentially bring into communities across India.
