Legal Lab Live: Evolutions in Web3 Licensing image

What licensing challenges do NFTs pose for artists and cultural institutions? How are the technical and legal components of copyright licences evolving in Web3?
The ‘metaverse’ raises a number of legal issues concerning artists’ and cultural institutions’ intellectual property and moral rights. The Legal Lab Live series addresses these by convening conversations with thought leaders and practitioners who are building new systems and approaches to art, law and technology.
Join Serpentine’s Legal Lab Principal Investigator, Alana Kushnir, and legal scholar, internet activist and artist, Primavera de Filippi, for the third Legal Lab Live session as they explore the legal and technical uncertainties of licensing NFTs (non-fungible tokens). They will introduce the Token Bound Licence – a new copyright license developed by Primavera in collaboration with the Legal Lab, IC3 and the COALA NFT Taskforce — a community of researchers, technologists, artists and lawyers. This license is designed specifically for use with NFTs, allowing transfer of rights along with the transfer of the NFT.
