UK committee to look into NFT copyright infringement

A UK committee comprising groups from various political organizations has requested the government get connected with non-fungible token spaces and look into copyright violations, thereby setting up more effective practices for safeguarding the interests of builders.

It is conceivable for a copyright violation to occur if an NFT is constructed from creative work without the builders’ or owners’ permission. Regarding this matter, numerous lawsuits have been launched in both the United Kingdom and the United States.

According to the chair of the Culture, Media, and Sports Committee, Dame Caroline Dinenage, artists are perpetually challenged by the unauthorized use of their works and the deception of consumers through fraudulent promotional activities.

The group was responsible for initiating an investigation on the issue of NFTs in November. It was learned that certain UK football associations were supplying tokens that provided the members with some additional facilities, such as placing their votes on matters related to the club, along with the products and overall exposure.

As per the statement issued, the group is also apprehensive about the fact that the concerned associations could release fan tokens in the form of fan involvement in the upcoming times. This is in spite of the price instability and reservations. 

In the committee’s opinion, football enthusiasts who indulge in guesswork related to sports-oriented crypto assets can create financial disturbances for enthusiasts, spoiling the image of the football associations. 


Within the sports arena, associates seem to be targeting crypto asset programs for squeezing more money from enthusiasts and offering added benefits that never occur. This is as per Dineage’s statement via a press release. The committee, on its part, has sent out instructions that those who promote NFTs need to be answerable regarding safeguarding customers’ interests.
