The digital marketplace - an art law briefing

Has the digital art market grown up in the past 18 months? Is the use of cryptocurrency an advisable method to purchase art online? Does the market for NFTs have the required legal framework in place to protect buyers? What should NFT sellers and creators be wary of?

In the second episode of Apollo and Charles Russell Speechlys’ art law series, Bernadine Bröcker Wieder, Rudy Capildeo and Aleksandra Artamonovskaja discuss the momentum of both the digital marketplace for art and the market for digital art itself. Moderated by Thomas Marks, the panel explores whether the current digital market has created or amplified legal issues for art-market participants and their clients, and the extent to which recent technological innovation might make for a radical restructuring of the art market.
