Hot Topic # 2: NFT's Securities Attributes
In this topic, people are interested to know when NFT is acting as a carrier of artistic creation (IP) and when such NFT-based IP is divided and exchanged in the market, when it will be subject to securities regulatory regimes, and how to comply with the law?
From a legal perspective, using NFT as the carrier, artistic creation will become a kind of "self-evidence" IP. For example, traditional paintings are physical. Whether they are genuine, experts must be asked to appraise them. Later in the digital age, a digital picture's carrier is a series of 0 and 1 codes. All copies are identical. Infringing copy is 100% the same as the original. It is pointless to discuss how to prove which copy is genuine.
