Now, hang on. NFTs are basically receipts -- in most cases, they don't have anything to do with property law, or copyrights. I have a suspicion neither Seth Green, nor the writer of the article knows how NFTs work or what they are (... which is how the scammers want it, of course), or there's something else going on here.

These apparently have the rights to do creative work using the art as part of the purchase agreement. I think. Which went along with the swiping of them. Four of them I guess.

That still doesn't make sense, though. If you can prove it was stolen, any problems with the contract (purchasing agreement) and IP rights should be fairly easy corrected. The NFT shouldn't even come up on the discussion. The law already knows how to deal with that sort of thing.

I must agree with you about being confused. I don’t get it either. Maybe it’s a hoax/joke?

Seth Green’s Bored Ape NFT, which was set to star in its own animated show, was stolen through a phishing scam.

Green no longer owns the commercial rights to the NFT and thus the show cannot move forward.


Firstly. good.

Second, it's not hard to swap out the protagonist of an animated show.

This seems pretty fishy, especially the "oh this happened right before I was going to turn this into a big hit...".

I mean, isn't one of the BENEFITS of NFTs on blockchain that ALL transactions are completely 100% (and easily) traceable? So there should be a pretty good idea what happened here.

And if it was, in fact, stolen - then yes (which he should be able to prove) then there are conventional ways to proceed.

And Green has resources, so should be able to get people who can fix this.

Since I don't understand NFTs, all I can say is that it's a shame that a creative person's IP has been taken from them, which is preventing them from working on a project. I get that NFTs seem ridiculous to many of us here, but I can't help but think about when my (ex)wife deleted my writing, D&D campaign notes, etc., when we were separated, and the hurt that caused me.
So I'm not laughing.
