We also pointed out that in our self-experiment we did not only link to the digital artwork but also attached a limited usage licence to the NFT (in the metadata; because otherwise the buyer of an NFT in general will not own any intellectual property respectively rights of exploitation or use to the artwork connected to the NFT).
