Description

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are blockchain-based assets which represent a paradigm shift in what it means to own physical or digital property. NFTs have a large range of applications, from ownership of digital art, to membership in an exclusive “metaverse” community, to representing ownership of real-world assets like real estate. Surprisingly, however, there is currently no legislation and almost no guidance from regulators in Canada relating to NFTs.

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs): Emerging Legal & Policy Considerations is a must-read for legal practitioners and policy makers seeking to understand the technology that underpins NFTs as well as the cutting-edge legal issues they present.
