DC bars artists from creating digital art and NFTs of DC characters

Newsarama has confirmed the authenticity of a letter that has been sent from DC/Warner Bros. to DC freelance artists, notifying them that they are not legally allowed to turn art they create for DC or of DC characters into NFT (Non-Fungible Token) cryptocurrency. Furthermore, it appears to bar DC freelancers from selling any digital art of DC characters whatsoever, even without an NFT component.
