Members and guests of the Copyright Society of the South enjoyed a fascinating webinar on September 28, 2021, with guest panelists Jordan Bromley (Manatt Entertainment), Brian Frye (University of Kentucky College of Law), and Jeremy S. Goldman (Frankfurt, Kurnit, Klein + Selz).   CSoS board member Tara Aaron-Stelluto (Aaron | Sanders PLLC) served as moderator.

Panelists explained the definition and concept behind Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), a digital asset that represents real-world objects like art, music, in-game items and videos.  NFTs are bought and sold online, frequently with cryptocurrency.  Panelists also discussed the copyright challenges and revenue prospects of this evolving asset form.
