Quentin Tarantino Tries for an Early Court Win in ‘Pulp Fiction’ NFT Legal Battle
Blockchain Technology Co-Chair Jeremy S. Goldman is quoted in the article, “Quentin Tarantino Tries for an Early Court Win in ‘Pulp Fiction’ NFT Legal Battle” published by The Hollywood Reporter. The article discusses Miramax’s lawsuit against Quentin Tarantino over plans to release non-fungible tokens based on the movie Pulp Fiction. In a recent motion, Tarantino argues his NFTs are based on his copyrights to the screenplay and don't infringe on Miramax's copyrights to the movie. Jeremy is quoted saying, “Both sides have their reserved rights and both sides have the ability to use NFTs to exercise those rights — Miramax with regard to the movie and Tarantino with regard to the screenplay.”

That’s not what it is. It’s just a record of ownership.”
