• Manchester United launched an NFT collection in Tezos, which sold out faster than expected.
• NFT artist Lucréce has accused Manchester United of copying his own designs and styles for its own collection.
• Lucréce is currently in talks with Arthur Breitman, co-founder of Tezos, to get an explanation from Manchester United as to why it used his designs.

The world of digital art and collectibles has been rapidly expanding over the past few years, and the latest development is that Manchester United, one of the world’s most popular soccer teams, has launched its own Non-Fungible Token (NFT) collection in Tezos. This collection was released on December 28th, and sold out much faster than expected.

However, NFT artist Lucréce has accused Manchester United of copying his own designs and styles for its own collection. Lucréce’s collection is much older than United’s and has higher prices, reaching approximately 21 ETH ($24,919) per NFT. In contrast, each of the Red Devils’ 7,777 NFTs sold for about $40, running out of stock immediately after release.

Lucréce has expressed his displeasure over Manchester United’s actions, and is currently in talks with Arthur Breitman, co-founder of Tezos, to get an explanation from Manchester United as to why it used his designs. Lucréce hopes to strike a deal with Manchester United and get some form of compensation for what he sees as the team’s intellectual theft.

This incident is yet another example of the growing importance of digital art and collectibles. It also serves as a reminder that NFTs can be used to copyright and protect a creator’s work, and that creators should be vigilant in protecting their own intellectual property. As the NFT market continues to grow and expand, this story serves as a cautionary tale.
