“You do not give us a percentage of what you earn on us, on our children. And I’m going to do something about it,” the artist told one paparazzi photographer.
Kanye West expressed his displeasure to the paparazzi after he was filmed arriving at Miami International Airport on Monday, as seen in a video released by ET Canada. Kanye could be heard saying to the operator:
“It’s not fair. You guys are chasing us, you are standing by and guarding us at all times. You don’t give us anything from what you earn from us, from our children.”
It was clear that Kanye’s main interest was in the right to royalties for paparazzi photos, and not in problems with the alleged invasion of privacy.
“You know, the NFT people [невзаимозаменяемые токены] constantly paying for the product they produce. So my image is part of what I should be paid for. We all need to make money together,” Kanye said.
NFT platforms such as OpenSea.io allow creators to set up royalties of up to 10%, earning proceeds each time a work of art is sold through the platform.
However, the possibility of sharing photos of celebrities remains in question. To begin with, the major NFT platforms generally do not apply royalty structures to each other, meaning that creators will not receive any funds if, relatively speaking, their OpenSea NFT is sold elsewhere.
In addition, the issue of copyright for an original work can only be resolved through offline negotiations.
