Miramax sues Quentin Tarantino over Pulp Fiction NFTs

 Blockchain tokens associated with high-resolution scans from original handwritten screenplay of Pulp Fiction

Production company Miramax has sued director Quentin Tarantino over his non-fungible token or NFT collection based on Pulp FictionThe lawsuit, filed yesterday in California court and noted online by attorney Mark Jaffe, says NFTs don’t fall under Tarantino’s reserved rights for the film. Miramax accuses him of violating the company’s copyright and trademark, and it’s demanding a halt to the upcoming sale.

Tarantino’s NFT collection is supposed to include blockchain tokens associated with high-resolution scans from his original handwritten screenplay of Pulp Fiction, plus a drawing inspired by some element of the scene. But Miramax alleges that Tarantino’s limited contractual rights for Pulp Fiction — including interactive games, live performances, and other ancillary media — don’t cover NFTs linked with the film’s screenplay.
