FRB’s Moish Peltz Co-Leads INTA’s White Paper on NFTs
Last week, the International Trademark Association (INTA) released two white papers examining the intersection of intellectual property and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in the metaverse. The white papers discuss the potential implications and challenges of trademark law (and neighboring intellectual property rights) with blockchain technology, NFTs, and decentralized virtual worlds, including discussion of infringement and counterfeiting issues.
As a member of INTA’s Emerging Issues Committee and Blockchain Subcommittee, FRB Partner Moish E. Peltz, Esq. was the project team co-leader of the Non-Fungible Tokens: A Report from INTA white paper. The report examines intellectual property challenges given the evolving NFT landscape. Additionally, both of INTA’s white papers offer insights and recommendations for stakeholders and brand owners navigating these emerging technologies and associated legal issues.
“These white papers evidence the importance of these emergent technological issues to some of the largest brands in the world, highlighting the growing significance of complex intellectual property questions posed by NFTs and blockchain technology,” said FRB’s Moish Peltz. “As this technology continues to evolve, it is essential for stakeholders to stay informed with these technological developments so they can effectively navigate these emerging legal issues.”
