When NFTs Go to Market: Preventing Fraud and Theft of Digital Currency

Given the meteoric rise and fast-paced nature of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), many businesses are looking to protect the authenticity of their burgeoning NFT-related offerings from digital fraud. Recently, Playboy Enterprises won a preliminary injunction against unauthorized websites that allegedly counterfeited its latest NFT collection. This case points to the increasing prevalence of scammers targeting these digital currency platforms and the need for digital-based businesses to flag and combat potential issues early on when launching NFTs.

Please join us for this webinar as we explore the legal considerations surrounding the Playboy case, and the trademark enforcement and compliance issues that arise when bringing NFTs to market.

Topics will include:

  • The ins and outs of promotional platforms to ensure compliance before going to market
  • How to educate your customer prior to NFT release and promotion
  • Ways to protect against fraud or theft
  • What to do when legal issues arise
