Christa Laser on the Law of the Blockchain

In this episode, Christa Laser, Assistant Professor of Law at Cleveland State University College of Law, discusses her article "Legal Issues in Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, and NFTs," which will be published in the Nebraska Law Review. Laser begins by explaining that we should think about the relationship between law and the blockchain as posing questions about how to apply abstract concepts to problems posed by new technologies, not an obligation to create a new body of law. She describes how regulators and courts have applied securities law, intellectual property law, and contract law to blockchain-related problem. And she encourages regulators, courts, and legislators to learn more about how this new technology works before acting to regulate it. Laser is on Twitter at @ChristaLaser.
