Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs)

Non-Fungible Tokens are unique digital identifiers recorded to a blockchain. They can serve as digital records of ownership. While NFTs can represent ownership to myriad digital items, a consistent question is what rights other than ownership of the token are conveyed to a purchaser of an NFT. 

Our attorneys provide legal clarity to creators, investors, developers and others interacting with NFTs and contemplating issues related to ownership, intellectual property, royalties, taxation, and other legal concepts. 

Our lawyers have represented industry leading Web3 and NFT-based games in the industry since the dawn of Cryptopunks. 

A Non-Fungible Token is a unique identifier that can represent a wide variety of digital or physical objects, including

  • Digital or Physical Art
  • Collectibles
  • Real Estate
  • Event Admission
  • IP Ownership/Royalties

Our attorneys help creators, investors, platforms, and other industry participants navigate significant legal issues regarding:

  • Royalties
  • Copyright and trademark licensing, ownership, and infringement
  • Terms of sale
  • Downstream (secondary purchaser) rights
  • Securities laws
