Video: NFTs as Decentralized Intellectual Property (Decentralized IP or De-IP): A New Theory

  • I’m happy to be able to finally share my latest research paper on NFTs as Decentralized Intellectual Property. Decentralized intellectual property–or Decentralized IP or De-IP for short–is a new theory my article sets forth to explain the phenomenon of NFTs.
  • The theory: we should view NFTs as creating a decentralized, alternative to the centralized copyright system established by Congress.
  • No doubt this is controversial. It’s the most controversial paper I’ve written in my career, in fact. I expect a lot of pushback, especially from other scholars in my field. But I’ve been pleasantly surprised just how strong the positive reactions I’ve already received from professionals who are working in Web3. WAGMI
