Update on Seth Greens Stolen Bored Ape NFT

Seth Green

Seth Green, Austin Powers’ supporting actor, lost his apes and sold them to another party, sparking a debate about whose rights to use the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT belong.

How did it all start?

A phishing site took four of Green’s non-fungible tokens (NFTs) from him on May 18: BAYC #8398, Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) #9964, and #19182, and Doodle #7546.

A person using the alias DarkWing84 already bought the BAYC NFT, according to Robot Chicken creator and Family Guy co-star Rob Green.

Members of the BAYC community and legal experts have provided their perspectives on how theft impacts BAYC intellectual property rights (IP).

What does the BAYC license say about theft?

The license for BAYC does not mention theft. Instead, an NFT simply states, “When you own a BoredApe NFT, that means you own the Art no matter how many people have it.”

It has been speculated that the new owner retains the right to use the NFT, even if the NFT was stolen.

What will happen next if he doesn’t get his NFT back?

The Bored Ape in question is set to appear in White Horse Tavern, a TV show that Green is putting together, but based on this interpretation, he might not have the right to continue.

An early teaser for the show was shown at the VeeCon NFT conference on May 21 in Minneapolis, but no exact release date has been announced.

What’s Next?

Earlier this week, Green hinted that he would take legal action against DarkWing84 if the BAYC were not returned.

Green, a lawyer at Anderson Kill Preston Byrne, tweeted that this is a “typical “unclean hands” scenario because a crook purchased the BAYC without notification from the crime victim.
