In particular we will discuss what to consider when creating a non-fungible token (NFT) and protecting your Intellectual Property (IP).

A high-level, overview conversation aimed at the professional, commercial photographer.  What are the steps to take before diving in?

What are the risks? And most importantly how do you protect your copyright and IP?

We will also touch on the value of NFTs for a photographer to their business, cost/benefits considerations.
