ESI Strategies for eDiscovery in the Metaverse: eDiscovery Trends

The metaverse is transforming how people interact & create content, so Damir Kahvedzic of ProSearch discusses ESI strategies for eDiscovery!

Damir’s article (eDiscovery in the Metaverse: ESI Strategies, available here) discusses how the metaverse is introducing new dimensions of challenges and opportunities for eDiscovery processes. As this virtual realm evolves, so must the techniques and strategies used to collect, preserve, and review data for legal purposes.

So, Damir delves into the intricacies of navigating eDiscovery within the dynamic metaverse landscape, including understanding metaverse ESI as the first step to effective ESI strategies. The electronically stored information within the metaverse can be categorized into three primary types: content, actions, and feelings.


Content: Metaverse environments, referred to as “worlds,” are created by users and offer diverse spaces for socializing, gaming, and more. These worlds can contain chat logs, direct messages, avatars, and multimedia. Additionally, administrators manage access and may control entry to authorized individuals, ensuring context and relevance.

Sure, we’re used to having to address content in eDiscovery. But what about actions (which may be ephemeral and not last more than a few minutes, if that) or feelings using haptic feedback technology? These are some of the unique challenges of the metaverse that impact eDiscovery. Damir has more to say about those, as well as collection challenges and strategies, and evolving review strategies.
