18:30 - Introduction and talk, followed by questions
19:45 - 20:30 - Networking
Given the amount of media focus and attention on the fast-changing world of Web3, Cryptocurrency and NFTs, it's all too easy to get caught up in the hype and miss seeing the forest for the trees. This talk will explore the role of NFTs and their place at the intersection of digital content, technology and intellectual property (IP). We'll take a journey through this intersection and address some key questions, such as:
- What are NFTs (and the non-fungibility superpower)?
- What has this got to do with Intellectual Property (IP)?
- Are NFTs just a remix of Digital Rights Management (DRM)?
- How will the creative industries fare through all this?
- What are some observations and conclusions on the present vs. future of NFTs?
