Mariya Ortynska about NFT

When we hear about NFT, we understand that it is something popular and well-known. It is the truth. Even the compilers of the Collins English Dictionary called NFT (non-fungible token) the word of 2021.

A year ago, the world was shaken by the news of artist Mike Winkelmann, known as Beeple, who sold the world's first NFT for a record $69 million in March 2021. The piece is called “Everydays: The First 5000 Days”. This is a collage of 5000 images - one for each day since May 2007.

A year after, the world is still debating what an NFT is: a property or an instrument of ownership, what kind of civil rights an NFT is, how it relates to intellectual property law, copyrights, trademarks. No less interesting and controversial are the questions of the responsibility of NFT-marketplaces for the sale of NFT for a “pirated” work and the commercialization of NFT.

IPSTYLE’s CEO Mariya Ortynska dealt with all this diversity and shared her knowledge and experience:

1) at a lecture at the Kyiv-Mohyla Business School held on June 22;

2) at #AskNAPA event, which was organized by the National Association of Patent Attorneys of Ukraine on July 12.
