The IP of Baseball Cards and NFTS IP Goes Pop

    • Society & Culture

IP Goes POP! takes you out to the ball game (and the blockchain) for this episode of the podcast that looks at the shift from “collectible trading cards” to “collectable NFTs”.
Podcast co-hosts, Volpe Koenig Shareholders, and intellectual property lawyers, Michael Snyder and Joseph Gushue round the bases and pull out their most memorable sports cards as they slide home to talk about the intellectual property (IP) of baseball cards, collecting, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). 
Our panel discusses the basics of what an NFT is and how this blockchain technology is shaping the future of the analog trading card business.
How can digital assets that live in a world of seeming abundance compete in value with the scarcity of cards you can touch, trade by hand, and (if you're unlucky) damage?
As the technologies used for collectibles shifts, so do the IP laws that cover any new frontier.
