The decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) known as Own The Doge has secured the legal rights to the iconic Shiba Inu (CRYPTO:SHIB) meme, a move aimed at consolidating and energising the broader Doge (CRYPTO:DOGE) community.

Key figures behind the Own The Doge project, John Monarch and 'Tridog', announced the successful negotiation with Sato Atsuko for exclusive licensing rights during an interview on April 17.

Atsuko, the owner of Kabosu, the Shiba Inu behind the famous meme, has granted control over the image's use in merchandise and crypto space applications to Own The Doge.

This acquisition not only resolves copyright confusion but also opens new avenues for collaboration and product development in the corporate sphere, according to Tridog.

With the backing of this iconic image, Own The Doge aims to strengthen the unity and identity of the Doge community, marking a significant milestone in the meme's contribution to digital culture and the crypto world.
