The seminar will take place on Thursday, January 13, 2022, 10:00am – 11:30am PST.


The popularity of non-fungible tokens, or “NFTs,” is growing with an enormous speed. This webinar will discuss applications of NFTs to competitive video games and will introduce the NFT issues related to playing, selling, and buying video games.

The webinar will also discuss NFTs’ issues related to smart contracts, licenses, copyrights, and trademarks. The speakers will explain, for example, the licenses’ applicability to buying and selling game-related NFTs, and the restrictions such as a right to display, right to copy, right to sell, right to use, fees and royalties’ provisions, and the like.
