Fraud is common in the NFT world, if you are considering purchasing one of my NFTs, or want to verify what you own is authentic, the first place to look is the Creator Wallet address. All artworks I create use the same wallet:
You can also verify this address and my associated identity using my NFD, which can be found here:
This page can be used as evidence of your usage rights if you have purchased one of my NFTs
Ownership of Intellectual Property
The creator of the artworks, using the alias Art Block, as well as the legal name of the artist controlling that entity, retain full ownership of the intellectual property and may use the images for promotion, exhibition, publication, and educational purposes without limitations, having to give prior notice, or needing to obtain permission from NFT owners. The artworks will never be directly resold by the creator in any way, however.
Usage Rights – Digital
Owners of the NFT have full legal ownership of the associated digital file for all personal use, including reproduction of the image in other formats, and exhibition of the image in public settings. No commercial rights are included with this NFT and the owner may not directly profit from the associated intellectual property.
Usage Rights – Physical
Owners of the NFT have full legal ownership of the associated physical print, and may request it be sent to them at any time by requesting the creator send it to them. Until such time that the NFT owner requests the associated print, the print will be considered ‘on loan’ to the artist. Usage rights for both the NFT and the physical print include all personal use, including reproduction of the image in other formats, and exhibition of the image in public settings. No commercial rights are included with this NFT and the owner may not directly profit from the associated intellectual property, however, they are welcome to collect, resell, or trade the NFT and/or the connected print and directly profit in doing so.
All of the artwork that I create is unique and original work. Every element in composite work was created by me and only used in one artwork, I never reuse assets. I strive to be clear about ownership and usage rights and give my collectors the freedom to use the artworks they have purchased for whatever they wish, so long as they do not resell the intellectual property or use it in situations that are commercial in nature.
