Tarantino's lawyer claims right to sell NFTs in 'Pulp Fiction' row

Quentin Tarantino’s attorney has responded to a lawsuit filed by Miramax by saying that he has every right to create and sell a series of “Pulp Fiction” NFTs.

Quentin Tarantino’s attorney has responded to a lawsuit filed by Miramax by saying that he has every right to create and sell a series of “Pulp Fiction” NFTs.

The response comes a day after the production and distribution company filed a lawsuit to stop Tarantino selling a series of non-fungible tokens based on his cult film, on the grounds of breach of copyright.

"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," says Brian Freedman.

Tarantino, who also directed Django Unchained and Kill Bill, is planning to create seven NFTs (non-fungible tokens) including digital copies of handwritten scripts for uncut versions of the film, with audio commentary and other elements. Each will also include "secret" aspects accessible only to the owner.
