Tech Intersect #59: Ping the Prof #2-Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), Copyright and Empowering Crypto Creatives
Show Notes

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I do another Ping the Prof session on the NFT craze from a POV not often covered: the legal issues crypto creatives need to be aware of and consider when engaging in this exciting opportunity to leverage blockchain, smart contracts and non-fungible tokens to create unique, rare and scarce digital assets, connect directly with your fan base, participate in primary and downstream secondary markets seamlessly and win in Web 3.0. This is particularly important for black and brown creatives, often exploited and marginalized by the entertainment, art and sports worlds. In this series of eps devoted to the topic of NFT creativity, I will have compelling conversations with crypto creatives, platform owners and community leaders. 

And I'll also cover:

  • copyright and other forms of intellectual property
  • fair use of protected works, collage and "transformative use"
  • right of publicity
  • persistent proof of ownership
  • immutable chain of transfer
  • digital rights and content management
  • digital first sale to counter license culture
  • self-executing payments
  • access controls
  • self-executing enforcement
  • increased value over time created by digital scarcity
