The anime “Dune” DAO learns about copyright

A quick reminder….Owning a book is not the same as owning the copyright for the material it contains. And owning an NFT for a book doesn’t change that. No matter how much it cost you. The stange and uncharted waters of cryptocurrencies and crypto-assets never ceases to amaze me.

If you were, in this case, to pay 100-times the asking price for the storyboard of an unproduced film based on someone else’s intellectual property, you do not suddenly own the copyright to that intellectual property, nor do you even have the ability to produce that film.
