The debate over creator royalties has recently intensified as big NFT marketplaces Blur and OpenSea attempt to eliminate creators from the equation. As worries over creative royalties grew, Animoca Brands decided to take action, with chairperson Yat Siu leading the charge to support creators’ rights.
According to the chairperson, the NFT marketplaces’ removal of royalties from their fee structures was an insult to the creators. The noteworthy point is that Animoca Brands has created a series of NFT licenses that include obligations for paying creator royalties and other limitations as part of their efforts to promote NFT creator royalties.
