Event Synopsis:

The recent surge of non-fungible tokens (NFTs)—in number, value, and type—has become a clear sign of their high growth potential across all types of industries. By associating digital and physical goods with a unique identifier on a tamper-resistant blockchain, NFTs allow for unprecedented levels of security, authenticity, and digital provenance, while raising novel issues involving intellectual property, data privacy, and identity management.

The continuous demand for NFTs breeds new forms of investment and revenue opportunities, and many businesses of all stripes are rapidly entering the NFT space. As with any emerging technology, however, there are numerous legal and practical issues to consider, and the potential for a great reward is balanced by the risk of great loss. Understanding the potential risks of NFTs before investing is critical.

In a LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the recent trends and significant challenges surrounding NFTs and the associated legal landscape, including helpful insights to avoid potential risks.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

• Overview of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs)

• Opportunities and Potentials

• Legal Risks and Implications

• Best Practices in Operating in the NFT Marketplace

• Practical Tips to Avoid Pitfalls

• What the Future Holds for NFTs
