Ontario Superior Court of Justice (ONSC) Allows Service via NFT Airdrop

McRae-Yu v. Profitly Incorporated et. al  (June 15, 2023) – Sohaib acted for the Plaintiff in a class action involving the sale of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The Ontario Superior Court of Justice (ONSC)  allowed service of the statement of claim and Mareva injunction Order via an NFT airdrop into 13 cryptocurrency wallets. This appears to be the first time a Canadian court has allowed Defendants to be served through an NFT airdrop.

  •  Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs): Emerging Legal And Policy Considerations (LexisNexis) (February 29, 2023) (Pre-Order Now!)

    Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are blockchain-based assets which represent a paradigm shift in what it means to own physical or digital property. NFTs have a large range of applications, from ownership of digital art, to membership in an exclusive “metaverse” community, to representing ownership of real-world assets like real estate. Surprisingly, however, there is currently no legislation and almost no guidance from regulators in Canada relating to NFTs.

    This book is the first of its kind worldwide and is intended to help readers understand the technology that underpins NFTs as well as the cutting-edge legal issues they present. It is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand NFTs and their legal and policy implications.
