Alt Legal Webinar: Fun with Non-Fungibles: NFT and blockchain basics for IP attorneys

Alt Legal Team | April 29, 2021

This webinar was recorded on May 6, 2021.

What do the NBA, Snoop Dogg, and Taco Bell have in common? All have recently released non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Digital assets and currencies are transforming core concepts of intellectual property law. For example, some NFT transactions include creator royalties with each subsequent transaction, completely upending the first-sale doctrine. In this webinar, IP and cryptocurrency attorney Moish Peltz discusses the basics of the blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and fungible and non-fungible tokens to ultimately explain the implications for the present and future practice of intellectual property law.

Topics covered include:

  • The basics of blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and tokens

  • An overview of NFT IP considerations

  • Licenses and NFT royalty implications, including the first-sale doctrine

  • Challenges presented to copyright and fair use

  • IP enforcement on and off the blockchain

  • Potential opportunities and risks associated with these technologies
