Quentin Tarantino and Miramax reach settlement over Pulp Fiction NFT

Deadline reports that the studio took the Pulp Fiction director to federal court in a November 2021 lawsuit over Tarantino’s desire to sell unique digital tokens from his 1994 film. The suit claimed that Miramax owned most of the rights to Pulp Fiction and thus Tarantino could not sell elements of the film. Tarantino’s legal team disputed the claim, saying the NFTs were images based on his screenplay and not shots from the actual film, and thus were not Miramax’s intellectual property, Tarantino and his lawyer Bryan Freedman requested the court dismiss the lawsuit in June.
