Why the legal battle between Miramax and Tarantino matters for crypto

With the recent news of the legal battle between Miramax and Quentin Tarantino on whether Mr. Tarantino is allowed to mint NFTs of script pages and other artifacts from the cult hit “Pulp Fiction” on SCRT, I thought it would be a good idea to write on the importance of this, and why the Secret Network is the next big thing in privacy.

(and is it often forgotten) The most simple reason why privacy should be a right is that it enables people to determine how and for what our information is used for and how its handled - especially by large businesses.
