Quentin Tarantino can sell ‘Pulp Fiction’ NFTs, lawyer argues


Quentin Tarantino’s attorney said Wednesday that he has every right to create and sell a series of “Pulp Fiction” NFTs.

The statement from lawyer Bryan Freedman comes a day after entertainment company Miramax filed a lawsuit over the director’s plans to create and auction off a series of NFTs based on his scripts for “Pulp Fiction.”

“Miramax is wrong – plain and simple. Quentin Tarantino’s contract is clear: he has the right to sell NFTs of his hand-written script for Pulp Fiction and this ham-fisted attempt to prevent him from doing so will fail,” Freedman said.

The suit from Miramax alleges that Tarantino’s planned offerings violate the copyrights it holds to the director’s 1994 film.

Tarantino recently announced plans to sell seven NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, which are digital works rendered unique and attached to a specific owner through cryptocurrency technology.
