250M Pieces of Digital Content to be copyrighted on Ontology Blockchain!
Blockchain platform Ontology declared a partnership with social creator platform OGQ to utilize the Ontology blockchain to assure copyright protection for content generated by the platform.
OGQ enables users to upload and sell unique digital content, including emojis, fonts, memes, music, and videos.
The collaboration will perceive 250 million examples of digital content being uploaded to the Ontology blockchain.
Ontology allies with social creators on copyright
Since launching in 2011, OGQ has drawn 14 million creators who have uploaded 54 million pieces of digital content on the platform. Digital assets uploaded to the blockchain will also be buyable in exchange for tokens utilizing Ontology’s OEP-4 token standard.
“One of the greatest challenges for digital content creators is the ability to maintain copyright over their work,” stated Ontology co-founder Andy Ji in a statement.
“Through our partnership, 250 million pieces of OGQ digital asset content will be housed on the Ontology public chain, ensuring the copyright is fully protected, and users are rightfully recognized,” he added.
Blockchain-based copyright precedent
It was reported that over 200 cases had identified copyright about data uploaded to DLT (distributed ledger technology).
“There are already many such cases in China, including large internet companies such as Alibaba, Baidu, and Tencent,” he said, “Initial estimates suggest that more than 200 cases should be supported by blockchain for copyright evidence.”
OGQ blockchain business developer Jess Eun gave a summary of how the copyright platform monitors for infringements in a statement.
First, the content experiences pre-detection for copyright infringement or duplication usage to verify that the content uploaded by each user is unique.
Eun states in a statement that “a third party that is publicly respectable or government-backed” is engaged in the process, adding that “OGQ’s copyright protection scheme is backed both by Ontology as a third party technical partner and the Korean government via Korean Copyright Council under the [Universal Content Identifier (UCI)] project.”
Afterward, OGQ intends to attack domestic associates to manage ongoing monitoring for copyright infringement while giving global coverage by Google vision API and Tineye API.
Alibaba patents DLT copyright system for music
Firms working with DLT seem to be making moves to improve copyright solutions, with Alibaba obtaining a patent in the United States for “blockchain-based music originality analysis” techniques on April 21.
The system comprises a network of nodes comprising a blockchain-based music library integrated with a ‘validator node” — which measures scores the originality of music based on various musical criteria including melodic composition, tempo, lyrics, and percussion. Alibaba employed for the patent during May 2019.
