Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), the latest rage in blockchain technology, have exploded into the world of media and entertainment, creating new markets and opportunities for artists, musicians, technology platforms, brands, investors, consumers and—of course—lawyers. NFTs raise a host of novel legal questions involving intellectual property, consumer protection, advertising, and regulatory matters.

This discussion will introduce NFTs to the legal profession and explore some of the fascinating legal issues raised by NFTs. Among other topics, we’ll cover: What is an NFT? How are NFTs being used in the marketplace? How do NFTs work? How does an NFT fit into the cryptocurrency and blockchain landscape? Why does an NFT have value? Who are the major players in the NFT space? What IP or other rights do you need to “mint” an NFT? What are the rights of an NFT owner? What terms accompany an NFT? How do you enforce terms associated with an NFT? What are the risks of engaging in NFT-related transactions? How do you protect clients from those risks? Will NFTs generate litigation and what kind? What’s coming next?


  • Learn what an NFT is
  • The rights of an NFT Owner
  • How the NFT market works
  • NFT Legal Issues and Risks
