Tilleke & Gibbins Lawyers Contribute to Webinar on NFTs under Thai Law

To provide an overview of NFTs and associated legal implications, Tilleke & Gibbins collaborated with True Digital Park to present a Thai-language session offering various Thai legal perspectives on the NFT phenomenon.

During the webinar, Kobkit Thienpreecha, partner and director of the firm’s corporate and commercial group; Nopparat Lalitkomon, senior associate from the same department; and Suebsiri Taweepon, partner in the firm’s intellectual property (IP) department, shared their thoughts on why NFTs are trending, analyzed existing laws applicable to the novel assets, looked at governance concepts, and provided in-depth details on NFT-related IP issues.

Regulators in Thailand—like many across the world—haven’t had sufficient time to consider and implement regulations to govern NFT activity. In the meantime, Thailand’s Securities and Exchange Commission has prohibited NFTs and several other digital assets in the country.

A full video recording of the webinar (in Thai) is available on the Tilleke & Gibbins YouTube channel.
