About the Author

J. Edward Lee teaches history at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina. He lives in York, South Carolina.


"Forget the hype and hysteria--Web3 and NFTs will provide enormous benefits to artists and commerce. And this book, by on of the Internet's most careful and experienced scholars, shows just how. In a powerful analysis that makes understandable the link between the law of IP and the code of Web3, Lee points to a genuinely productive future that will empower digital creativity far more effectively than IP law alone ever has. This is essential reading for our creative future." -- Lawrence Lessig, Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership, Harvard Law School

"This book will forever change the way you think about the creator economy. An eye-opening account of the relationships between artists, businesses, platforms, and consumers, this is the foundational book explaining the sweeping transformations just over the horizon. Ed Lee has written both a warning and a blueprint for a better future." -- Amy Webb, author of The Big Nine and The Genesis Machine

"Engagingly written, this is not just a serious argument for the value of NFTs to creators but also a remarkable story about the growth of a whole new type of property. Highly recommended." -- Mark A. Lemley, professor, Stanford Law School

"Creators Take Control sends the reader on an exhilarating journey through the dynamic world of artistic and business innovation around digital assets. With a deft blend of vivid examples, technical explanation, and legal analysis, Lee shows that the significance of nun-fungible tokens (NFTs) is not their eye-popping prices; it's the new forms of ownership, organization, and creative activity they enable." -- Kevin Werbach, First Pacific Company Professor and Chair, Department of Legal Studies Business Ethics, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania

"Creators Take Control taps into the urgent need for mainstream awareness about this fast-growing, fascinating industry." -- Art Plugged

"If you read one book about the NFT space, read this one." -- Magnus Resch, Leading Art Market Economist
