Seth Green’s Bored Ape problem is not rooted in copyright (BAYC owns that) but in BAYC’s broad license.
That license gives the “purchaser” fairly broad use of the IP and doesn’t exclude criminal/bad faith buyers.
BAYC terms are unusually brief btw (1/2)https://t.co/i6nGxgOiTw

Nemo dat quod non habet. The thief doesn’t get good title to Seth Green’s IP, nor does anyone who buys it from said thief with notice. https://t.co/XHjKZaSbWT
