The NFT collection of Pulp Fiction, one of the famous director Quentin Tarantino’s classic works, has received a lot of attention. However, Quentin Tarantino’s announcement piqued the interest of the film’s producer, Miramax.
On November 17, Miramax filed a lawsuit against Tarantino, claiming that producing the NFT collection of the film was illegal. Miramax; claims for breach of contract, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, and unfair competition. Meanwhile, Miramax also states that Tarantino made his NFT collection plans in secret and that they sent him a letter after the announcement.
According to the agreements between Tarantino and the studio, there are “secret contracts” in the commercial aspect of the project. Miramax argues that Tarantino does not have the right to launch the NFT collection due to their agreement with him.
Who Will Launch NFT?
It seems Miramax has the right to release movie-based NFTs and is considering doing so.
Bart H. Williams who is a lawyer representing Miramax in the suit made the following statement about the subject;
“Miramax will defend all of its rights in regard to its library, including rights relating to NFTs, and will not allow Quentin’s representatives to deceive others into believing they have the authority to make similar deals in violation of the rights agreements they signed.”
As you are aware, NFTs provide ownership of a rare item. As a result, the NFTs for Pulp Fiction will remain faithful to the film’s original script while also adding new content.
SCRT Labs, one of the project’s partners, has long been developing NFTs inspired by Tarantino’s films. The fans of the “Artifact Collection” will be able to meet them in December.
