I can “prove” my copyright by mailing it to myself.
But what happens when our creations are digital, or when cities start doing away with physical postal services, or when communications generally span various digital platforms from email to WhatsApp, and telegram to slack, to instagram and facebook.
How do I secure and prove my copyright now and in the future. How do I ensure it doesn’t get used when I don’t want it to, or at least that I get paid when it does.
Perhaps there is a technology that allows me to secure my copyright, make it available for licensing and monetization, in an automated way, and without any reliance on one company or government agent to keep my information true, accurate and up to date.
We will discuss how blockchain proposes to solve these problems, as well as what hurdles still exist.
