Trump has been accused of plagiarism on his NFT collections
CriptoFácil – Former US President Donald Trump’s recently launched collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) has come under heavy criticism for poor quality, editing, and use of stock images, among other things. However, it doesn’t end there, as Donald Trump is now being accused of plagiarism for using certain images in NFTs that were protected by copyright.
The images used in the collection are taken directly from the Internet, made by third parties and of low quality. For example, there is a picture of Trump as a duck hunter (or something similar) wearing a very similar costume to the trademark “ASPIRE – CATALYST All Season Breathable Wader Collection”.
- In addition to allegations of designer clothing being used in this collection, there have also been allegations that Shutterstock images have been published.
So, users on Twitter are complimenting more on this, stating that all the NFTs are poorly edited and created, with watermarked and copyrighted images.

In that tweet, Morgan claimed the photos were so badly edited that you could see the watermark. So, the tags have been removed from the photos by bad edits. We can again see the visible watermark on other NFTs.
