IP Rights of CryptoPunks and Meebits


Yuga Labs has purchased the CryptoPunks and Meebits collections’ Intellectual Property (IP) rights from LarvaLabs. It’s the company behind the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) collection from the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC).

They currently hold the brands, copyright in the art, and other intellectual property rights for both collections. They now have 423 CryptoPunks and 1711 Meebits in their possession.

Larva Labs’ Impact on Crypto

They set out to innovate in the NFT area because they admired CryptoPunks and the project’s founders, Matt and John, for their visionary work.

The development of LarvaLabs in 2017 changed the Ethereum blockchain’s possibilities. It re-aligned what the network’s intrinsic potentials are. It has recently been highlighted by rising trade volumes.

The deal has dubbed as merger of CryptoPunks and Bored Apes, which reflect the history of NFTs. It is possible that the collection is what propelled the field of digital collectibles forward.

The Arrangemnts of the Partnership

Guy Oseary, a partner at Yuga Labs, and Matt Hall and John Watkinson, the founders of LarvaLabs, arranged the agreement organically. The CryptoPunks founders will not be joining Yuga Labs despite the acquisition. Instead, they will continue to build the ecology around the two iconic collections.

Yuga Labs, according to the founders of LarvaLabs, are the pioneers of the current profile image initiative. They’re also the best at running these initiatives in the world. They are the ideal CrytoPunks and Meebits stewards. They believe that, in their hands, they will remain significant, vibrant projects in the growing decentralized web.

Future Steps for the Arrangment

Yuga Labs has stated that as part of its ambitions to acquire LarvaLabs’ collections, it will provide CryptoPunks and Meebits holders the same commercial rights. Owners of BAYC and MAYC have certain rights.

They’re drafting new terms and conditions for both collections with our legal staff. They plan to share these with the community as soon as possible. They are further integrating CryptoPunks and Meebits with the web3 ethos by turning over these rights.

CryptoPunks and Meebits are expected to be used by a wide spectrum of third-party developers and community innovators in their web3 applications. They’ll be working alongside them to develop the overall brand.

Yuga Labs do not intend to fit these NFT collections into the ‘club’ paradigm they designed for BAYC, though. They see BAYC as the epicenter of the cosmos they’re creating at Yuga, and CryptoPunks as a historically significant collection.

They plan to be conscientious guardians of both the CryptoPunks and Meebits collections as they endeavor to expand their utility. Before deciding what to do next, they will listen to the community.
