    Default Out to Sea as a NFT

    Apparently stereograms are now part of the insane NFT (Non Fungible Token) movement. Whether or not they are yours.

    A colleague let me know that a site Open Sea where these things are posted and sold had quite a few of my images. Nobody asked. The just picked images off the web and registered them as the owner and are selling them as NFTs.

    This is all vapor ware to me and I am sure nobody is going to make a million dollars let along a few quarters from my images, but sheesh. WTF?

    I requested the images be removed and they have been. For now.

    Gary, not fair. I would pursue them to the ends of the Earth.
    All of your images have your copyright on them.
    There has to be a legal recourse.

    My guess is most of these are young people hoping to make a buck and they think that anything on the web is theirs for the taking. They have absolutely no concept of copyrights or maybe never even stop to think that maybe someone created all these images.
