The protection and respect of my artistic work are of paramount importance. As a collector of my NFTs, you actively contribute to the preservation and appreciation of my digital art. Each NFT you acquire represents a true recognition of my talent and creativity, as well as a contribution to the recognition of digital art as a whole. By protecting my artistic work, you ensure its integrity and authenticity. You commit to respecting the copyright associated with the artwork you own, ensuring that you do not reproduce, publicly distribute, or commercially use the work without my prior authorization. Remember that the rarity and value of NFTs are closely linked to the originality and uniqueness of each artistic creation. The more exclusive and preserved a work is, the more it retains its artistic and economic value. By respecting my artistic work, you contribute to preserving the exclusivity of the NFTs you own and enhancing their value in the market.

What Am I Buying When Purchasing an NFT? A. Description of an NFT on the Blockchain
When you purchase an NFT, you are acquiring a unique token registered on the blockchain. The blockchain is a decentralized and transparent technology that immutably records all transactions related to NFTs. This means that each NFT has a transparent history, accessible to all, attesting to its legitimacy and provenance. The blockchain on which my NFTs are registered ensures the security, traceability, and authenticity of each token you acquire. Thanks to this innovative technology, you can be assured that your NFT is unique, tamper-proof, and truly represents the associated digital artwork.
B. Unique Characteristics of an NFT
Unlike other forms of digital assets, such as audio files or images, NFTs possess unique characteristics that set them apart. Each NFT is indivisible and cannot be split into smaller parts. It represents a whole and exclusive unit of the digital artwork associated with it. Moreover, NFTs are non-fungible, meaning they are not interchangeable with other tokens. Each NFT has its own attributes, such as specific metadata, artist information, creation date, etc., making it unique and distinguishable among other NFTs.
C. Authentication and Provenance of a Digital Artwork
One significant advantage of NFTs is their ability to provide clear authentication and traceability of the represented digital artwork. By purchasing an NFT, you can authenticate and verify the provenance of the digital artwork, enhancing its value and legitimacy. Through the blockchain, you have access to a public ledger that records all past and present transactions related to the digital artwork. This allows you to trace the complete history of the NFT, from its creation by the artist to your acquisition. As a collector, it is essential to understand that the authentication and provenance of a digital artwork are guaranteed by the NFT itself and the blockchain on which it is registered. This provides you with increased confidence in the originality and authenticity of the artwork you own. In the next section of this guide, we will explore the possibilities offered by the artwork and the exclusive content provided with your NFT, as well as the steps to take to protect and respect the rights associated with my artistic work.
Using the Artwork and Provided Exclusive Content
A. Rights Granted to NFT Owners
As an owner of an NFT, you have certain rights related to the use of the digital artwork and the provided exclusive content. These rights allow you to fully enjoy your acquisition and appreciate the artwork within the framework defined by the associated license. The granted rights may vary based on the terms of the license determined by the NFT creator. Therefore, it is essential to review the applicable license before acquiring an NFT. The license will specify the rights granted to you, such as personal use, private display, or the possibility of reselling the artwork.
B. Limitations and Usage Restrictions
While you enjoy certain rights as an NFT owner, it is important to understand that there are also limitations and usage restrictions. These limitations may be set by the license associated with the digital artwork and aim to protect the rights of the artist and their beneficiaries. Limitations and usage restrictions may include prohibitions on reproducing, publicly distributing, or displaying the artwork without prior authorization. It is crucial to respect these limitations to preserve the integrity of the artwork and ensure respect for the artist’s rights.
C. Importance of Respecting Copyright
Copyright protection is of utmost importance in the realm of crypto-art and NFTs. As a collector, it is essential to respect the artist’s copyright and acknowledge their creative contribution. Respecting these rights contributes to the valuation of the NFTs you own and establishes a sustainable ecosystem for artists. When you acquire an NFT, it is crucial to understand that the artist retains the copyright to their artwork. This means that any reproduction, distribution, or public use of the artwork without prior authorization constitutes copyright infringement and may lead to legal consequences. As a responsible collector, ensure that you use the digital artwork and the provided exclusive content in accordance with the granted rights and defined restrictions. This will ensure the respect of the artistic work and support the longevity of the NFT market.
