The NFTs market is booming and if it represents an opportunity for creation and distribution, it must not forget the fundamental rules of copyright for artists and rights holders. Since April 2022, more than a thousand infringing works have been removed from online sales platforms by ADAGP and its sister companies. 

The ADAGP co-signs with several major artists' estates a collective statement on NFTs. 

In order to facilitate requests for authorization of works for the creation of NFTs and to answer any questions on the subject, the signatories have launched the website
