NYU Law Forum: NFTs Explained … To the Extent Possible

What is an NFT, and why are people talking about them? In this Forum, Professors Amy Adler and Chris Sprigman—joined by Mitchell F. Chan, an artist and leading NFT innovator—will look at what NFTs do, and just as importantly, what they don’t do. They’ll discuss a number of recent NFT controversies and examine the role that NFTs are beginning to play in art markets. They will also review the intellectual property law, as well as other legal and social issues raised by NFTs, and venture some early predictions about whether NFTs will have enduring importance—and, if so, why. Professor Barton Beebe will moderate.
