Firstly, We all have been reading & hearing about the people who make fun of NFT’s by right-clicking and saving the images and claiming they “own” them.The government of Germany states the rights & duties of proud NFT owners. And NFT owners have been asking for some regulations and laws for themselves to avoid this kind of situation. And the government of Germany has managed the situation with some explanations by regulating some “laws” about it.
By being non-fungible, NFTs should not qualify as “tradable securities” under the Prospectus Regulation. However, it may be possible to design NFTs in a way so that they qualify as investment products under the German Capital Investment Act (VermAnlG). This law governs the public offering of “grey market” investment products, including certain direct investments. Direct investments are govern by the VermAnlG if an interest payment. A repayment of invested capital, or a cash settlement is promised or envisaged in exchange for an investment of capital. Whether NFTs fall within that definition will depend on the individual token. The mere acquisition of an NFT with the pure expectation of being able to sell it for a higher price to a third party should. However, usually not fall within the scope of the VermAnlG.
Here are the duties and rights of an nft owner under German law & regulations.

The legal framework surrounding NFTs and crypto assets, in general, has a long way to go. This lack of clear guidelines and definitions is a significant problem for the NFT. And blockchain industry and must be addressed by the legislator if the market is to continue growing. And developing healthily and transparently.
All in all, it is arguable that while (potential) NFT holders do not necessarily have to suffer from a complete lack of accessibility when it comes to determining their rights and duties, the obstacles posed by such an inconsistent and fractured body of law will likely hinder the progress of this still-emerging industry. It is thus essential for legislators to determine the applicable law as quickly as possible, to allow the market to continue to grow.
