Lawyer says Tarantino has right to sell NFT films for ‘Pulp Fiction’

Angels Quentin Tarantino’s lawyer said Wednesday that he has every right to create and sell the “Pulp Fiction” series.

Attorney Brian Friedman’s statement comes a day after entertainment company Miramax filed a lawsuit over the director’s plans to create and sell a series of NFTs based on scenarios for the movie Pulp Fiction.

“Miramax is wrong – plain and simple. Quentin Tarantino’s contract is clear: he has the right to sell NFTs from his handwritten script to Pulp Fiction and this failed attempt to prevent him from doing so will fail.”

The lawsuit, filed by Miramax, alleges that Tarantino’s planned shows infringe copyright on the director’s 1994 film.

Tarantino recently announced plans to sell seven non-fungible tokens, which are digital businesses that are made unique and attached to a specific owner through cryptocurrency technology.

They consist of scanned digital copies of handwritten text pages of uncut versions of scenes from the movie, with audio commentary.

Friedman also criticized Miramax for including details and pages of its contract with Tarantino.

“Miramax’s ruthless decision to release confidential information about the filmmakers’ contracts and reparations will irreparably tarnish its reputation long after this case has been dismissed,” Friedman said.
