    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.

    Its more of getting the right experience up, then the credentials.

    I would say this means: gaining quick, cheap experience with this new scheme and learn how the market reacts so that later you know how to play the game and rake in the money.

    I had a quick look at Out at Sea and whilst the whole NFT thing goes way over my head (or under my arse) from the quality of the stereograms You and Gene have no competition Gary.

    All digital art has a creator. The creator is therefore the owner unless he sells on his ownership to a third party. Your artwork is your property. Don't allow anyone to steal it!

    The same thing happened to me, GW. One of my images was ripped off from one of my art sites and posted on Open Sea to sell as an NFT. My art site let me know that it happened, and I filed a DMCA with Open Sea, and the image was removed.

    As for NFTs themselves, I don't get it. Any more than I get Bitcoin and all that stuff.
