Looking Outwards 11

This week I decided to look into the article “NFTs and Copyright”.

What I found most interesting is that basically NFTs don’t give the “owner” copywriter ownership so they cannot print or distribute the work without permission. It is basically making digital work collectors items.

What’s even more interesting is that you can make an NFT for anything. So spammers are grabbing URLs and releasing NFTS upon them. However, this is also a big copyright infringement, and that’s where the problem is created.

Overall, it could help creators prove their copyright, and it does give digital creators a way to give out unique copies of their work, the problem is there is no system or governing for NFTs to prevent bots.

I think NFTs shows how a virtually useless thing can be abused, which really shows how our society works and how easily the internet makes it to abuse things. Overall, I think it’s very scary that loads of money can be passed around and rules can be broken so easily if there isn’t laws in place to stop them.
