From using holograms at music concerts to specialized apps that cater to the music scene, the music industry, like many other industries, will see the implementation of Virtual and Augmented Reality for uses that were previously the thing of science fiction.

Partner David Fink presented on these topics at 2017 SXSW on the session, “Virtual/Augmented Reality in a Real World” addressing the current state of VR and AR in the law and the issues expected to arise in the near future.
