Rothschild, 22-cv-384 (JSR), 2022 WL 1564597 (S.D.N.Y. May 18, 2022) (the “Order”). A recap of the decision is below.
Initially, the court distinguishes Rothschild’s NFTs, styling them as NFTs which link to “digital images of (faux fur, not leather) Birkin bags, and not virtually wearable Birkin bags.” Order at n.1. This creates a distinction between NFTs which link to artistic images, and NFTs which link to wearable metaverse objects themselves (this decision only concerns the former, although Rothschild has apparently stated plans to develop the latter). Rothschild had argued that the digital images of the Birkin bags he sells as NFTs are “art.” Id. at 3. Therefore, Rothschild argues that the Second Circuit’s Rogers v. Grimaldi test should apply and the Court should dismiss Hermès’ claims on First Amendment grounds. See Rogers v. Grimaldi, 875 F.2d 994 (2d Cir. 2020).

By storing data via a peer-to-peer network (P2P), blockchain controls for a wide range of risks that are traditionally inherent with data being held centrally.Of note, P2P blockchain networks lack centralized points of vulnerability. Consequently, hackers cannot exploit these networks via normalized means nor does the network possess a central failure point.In order to hack or alter a blockchain’s ledger, more than half of the nodes must be compromised.
Looking ahead, blockchain technology is an area of extensive research across multiple industries, including financial services and payments, among others.Blockchain comprises a digital network of blocks with a comprehensive ledger of transactions made in a cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin or other altcoins.One of the signature features of blockchain is that it is maintained across more than one computer.

Too little volatility is just as problematic for markets as too much, we uncertainty in excess can create panic and problems of liquidity. This was evident during Black Swan events or other crisis that have historically roiled currency and equity markets.Read this Term
When NFTs first exploded onto the scene in early March of 2021, all eyes turned to the non-fungible token space.
Suddenly, everyone was making them. When the NFT market peaked in the first week of May, $170 million in NFTs were transacted in seven days. However, during the seven-day period at the end of the month, there were just $19.4 million in NFT sales.
Altogether, the decrease amounted to a 90 per cent collapse.
As the NFT market has cooled, prices have taken a downward turn toward the ground.

Still, many analysts agree that the true potential for non-fungible token technology has yet to be tapped. Therefore, getting into the market as a creator early could pay off down the road.
If you are thinking of creating an NFT, here are five of the most important things to consider.
Where Will Your NFT Be Sold?
It does not really matter what kind of a non-fungible token you want to make: people have minted tokens from songs, digital images, photographs, memes, even their own gaseous emissions and they have managed to make good money.

However, you might want to consider where your NFT will be sold.
While there are concerns, there is also opportunity; being able to sell ownership to fans, ongoing royalties through NFTs, exclusive content, experiences, and access beyond just the song or album, are all new opportunities produced by the NFT market that will certainly have an impact on the music industry.
With blockchain technology allowing consumers to own something and have a direct relationship with artists, there are many legal and technological problems yet to be solved. Both Peltz and Gatto cautioned that because who has rights is contractual, not regulatory, dealing with NFT transactions is truly a case-by-case analysis.
Given the contractual structure, there are layers of entities trying to figure out who owns rights, how to track royalties, and determine who has royalties.
Next, Gatto explained the relationships in the NFT marketplace.
