The Alison Parker murder video turned into an NFT

The Alison Parker murder video turned into an NFT

Andy Parker, the father of the murdered journalist Alison Parker, creates an NFT to avenge the murder of his daughter. For the past six years, Parker has been trying to attain the video of his daughter’s murder off the Internet. Presently, Parker has created this NFT to prevent social media users from publishing this horrible clip.

Alison Parker, a 24-year-old journalist, was shot through a live broadcast; when she was interviewing the CEO of the local Chamber of Commerce. Adam Ward, cameraman recorded this 17-second clip, that shortly turned viral. After six years, it still has tens of thousands of view on social media.

Andy Parker has turned this horrible clip into an NFT. He did this to get ownership of the video and oblige large technology companies such as Meta and Google to remove the video. This is because while users, not platforms, are responsible for what they post, platforms are yet subject to copyright law. Moreover, Parker encounters a major hurdle: The original video goes to Gray TV.
Because of this, Andy Parker has transformed the video to an NFT. Actually, experts think the tactic could cause a lawsuits against Big Technology; by claiming that the video is copyrighted issue. “Digital tokens can provide special tests of how copyright applies in conditions with mitigating situations,” said Moish Peltz, an NFT intellectual property lawyer.

Lately, survivors and minorities are using NFTs to retrieve harmful narratives. For instance, the previous year, Jadu announced its initial hologram NFT drop to motivate black artists to retrieve and monetize their work.
