Buying an Artwork on the Platform does not mean that the User becomes the holder of the Intellectual property rights attached to the Artwork.

This right includes the right to display or perform the Artwork privately or publicly for the purpose of promoting or sharing the User’s ownership or interest in the Artwork for example on social media platforms, websites, blogs, digital galleries, or for the purpose of sharing, promoting, discussing or commenting on the Artwork.
The collectors are the holders of the following rights applicable to NFT, subject to compliance herewith:
- Right of representation, use and distribution. The right to use and distribute the NFT, in a strictly private context, on any medium. The right to use and disseminate the NFT, in a public context, on any tangible or intangible medium, without this use or dissemination being carried out for the purpose of achieving or benefiting from economic advantages.
- Right to sell or lease. The right to assign or transfer, free of charge or for a fee, all or part of the NFT, within the strict limits of the respect, by the future assignee, of the moral rights attached.
Collectors shall not nor permit any third party to:
- reproduce, modify, distort, mutilate, or perform any other modification on the Artwork;
- use the Artwork to advertise, market, or sell any products or services;
- use the Artwork in connection with images, videos, or other forms of media that depict hatred, intolerance, violence, cruelty, or anything else that could reasonably be found to constitute hate speech or otherwise infringe upon the rights of others;
- incorporate the Artwork in movies, videos, video games, or any other forms of media for a commercial purpose, except to the limited extent that such use is expressly permitted by these TCS or solely for the User’s personal, non-commercial use;
- sell, distribute for commercial gain, or otherwise commercialize merchandise that includes, contains, or consists of the Artwork;
- attempt to trademark, copyright, or otherwise acquire additional intellectual property rights in or to the Artwork;
- attempt to mint, tokenize, or create an additional cryptographic token representing the same Artwork;
- falsify, misrepresent, or conceal the authorship of the Artwork.
Any subsequent transfer of an Artwork will immediately terminate the former owner’s rights on the Artwork, which will automatically be transferred to the new owner.
When the NFT is sold with the physical collectible, a seconf “Physical Claim” NFT is issued to certify ownership of the physical collectible.
All intellectual property rights attached to any content published on the Website, excluding the NFT generated by the creators, are the property of Trame International or its partners, and are provided free of charge to Users, within the exclusive framework of the use of the Website. Therefore, any unauthorized use of these contents is unlawful.
Waiver of the Withdrawal Right

- Absence of waiver: No act, delay in acting or any other attitude, passive or active, on the part of one of the Parties shall be deemed to constitute for that Party a waiver of any of the rights and actions of which it is a creditor under the TCS, unless such waiver is evidenced in writing signed by a duly authorized representative.
- Proof and agreement of proof: The online acceptance of these TCS by electronic means shall have the same evidential value between the Parties as the agreement on paper.
