The latest edition of Cointelegraph’s Nifty Newsletter is here, bringing you the latest updates on nonfungible tokens (NFTs). This newsletter aims to keep readers informed and inspired about the latest trends and insights in the NFT space. So, let’s dive in and see what stories are making headlines this week.
British MPs are urging officials in the United Kingdom to take action on NFT copyright infringement and the potential harms of sporting groups issuing digital assets. A bipartisan parliamentary committee has emphasized the risk to the intellectual property rights of artists due to the ease and speed at which NFTs can be minted. The committee believes that this issue is the most pressing one that needs to be addressed. They are urging the government to protect creators from copyright violations and explore ways to regulate the NFT space.
In another article, an executive from the Decentraland Foundation, Yemel Jardis, shares his perspective on the recent slump in the NFT market. Jardi believes that this decline shouldn’t be seen as a sign of distress but rather as a sign of maturity. He argues that with more education and awareness around NFTs, the focus will shift from speculative trading to recognizing the genuine utility that NFTs can offer. This viewpoint suggests that the NFT market is evolving and becoming more stable over time.
In a separate incident, the popular Ethereum wallet MetaMask was briefly removed from the Apple App Store. This raised concerns among NFT collectors about a potential permanent removal. Apple users were unable to download the application from both the App Store and the MetaMask website. Some speculations suggest that Apple’s terms of service, particularly the prohibition of apps running unrelated background processes like cryptocurrency mining, may have been the reason behind the app’s temporary disappearance. This incident highlights the challenges faced by NFT platforms and associated services in navigating the rules and policies set by centralized platforms.
