Yuga Labs, the creators of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT project and Otherside metaverse, has recently filed a lawsuit against Ryder Ripps.

Yuga Labs claims that Ryder Ripps has been defrauding buyers with falsely equivalent NFTs in a “deliberate effort to harm Yuga Labs at the expense of consumers.”

In the lawsuit, Ripps is referred to as “a self-proclaimed ‘conceptual artist,'” and the creator of RR/BAYC, an NFT collection that features BAYC images he did not purchase.

Post allegations, NFT marketplace OpenSea, has removed Ripps’ collection because of the claim of intellectual property infringement, but not before it saw nearly $3.5 million in total volume traded.
