Non-Fungible Tokens White Paper

Published: April 12, 2023

The massive, sudden growth of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) has left the legal community—and the intellectual property community in particular—looking for answers.

Indeed, NFTs do not always fit neatly together with existing legal doctrines, especially when considering elements such as fair use, nominative fair use, artistic freedom, and the first sale doctrine (to name a few).

This paper explores how NFTs fit into the current legal landscape, and legal interpretations of them, and provides information for brand owners and lawyers.

INTA’s Non-Fungible Tokens white paper provides brand owners, policymakers, and lawmakers with an extensive overview of NFTs and an in-depth understanding of associated legal issues.
