Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have become a popular topic in the video game space as they can provide "permanent" assets that can be authenticated and used across different games. Video game NFTs are already selling for high prices which will increase as monetization of NFTs becomes more sophisticated. Yet the use of NFTs in video games creates interesting legal issues with respect to contract issues related to NFTs, copyright ownership of the NFT, trademark infringement in the use of NFTs across games, and licensing issues with respect to the purchase and sale of NFTs.

This CLE will discuss applications of non-fungible tokens to competitive video games including: why and how they may be used, what benefits they may bring, and what intellectual property and contract issues they may create.
