Using the same technology that verifies the world´s bitcoin transactions (the blockchain), Blockai wants to assist artists by making it easy to timestamp your protected works all while attempting to spot those infringing on your intellectual property by scouring the Web for offenders.
Once you register, you´ll receive a copyright certificate with a permanent timestamp proving the time it was created. Using blockchain technology makes tampering with this after the fact an utter impossibility, thus helping your case should it ever come to litigation. „Our mission is to help artists turn their copyrights into assets“ says Lands.
Blockchain technology has a wide variety of application outside of monitoring bitcoin purchases. Whether it can win the war on copyright infringement remains to be seen, but it´s an innovative idea and one that could advance copyright protection to the modern day, rather than being stuck in the 70s, as it sits currently.
