COPYTRACK – Global Copyright Register

Located in the heart of Berlin, COPYTRACK is currently a fast-growing business. Over the course of the last few years, it has become a leading platform and service provider for image search and copyright enforcement worldwide. At the core of COPYTRACK is the creation of a Global Decentralized Copyright Register for digital content, which authenticates users and links digital intellectual property. This online registry will generate a unique ecosystem for rights-holders, thereby providing new efficient marketplaces.

COPYTRACK is a fair online platform for publishers, photographers, image agencies, and e-commerce vendors. They stand for just and fair management of intellectual property on the internet. COPYTRACK currently offers 4 key services. These services are free for anyone to use. They strive for equitable solutions between rightsholders and offenders. First, they must understand, in part, the nature of copyrights and how violations can occur.

TECHNOLOGY AND MARKET

Competition exists within nearly all industries, and services for rights-holders is no exception. Their main competitors include image search engines and image-matching providers, companies that offer post-licensing services, businesses that perform collection, and even lawyers who enforce rights. It is worth noting that these services are region dependent and not available worldwide. The following figure compares other businesses, including their services and areas of operation.

COPYTRACK – Global Copyright Register

In an extremely short time frame, COPYTRACK has grown to become the leading company in the worldwide market of highly automated copyright enforcement. Starting in Berlin and having a presence in New York and Tokyo has allowed us to directly engage with artists and their networks all over the world, and has helped us to quickly increase their customer base. The lack of entry hurdles ensured high conversion at all steps of their processes.

The Future of Global Copyright Registration

At the core of COPYTRACK is the creation of a global decentralized copyright register for digital content, which authenticates users and links digital intellectual property. This registry will generate a unique ecosystem for rights-holders, thereby providing new e-client marketplaces. With its cutting edge technology and processes, it is well-suited to globally address the key challenges in the industry and will be open to the public.

Licensing + Payments – CPY-Token

CPY will be the native token on their blockchain platform. It will be used for payment in their flexible and modular licensing systems. This enables automated payments to rights-holders based on licenses they design themselves in their friendly and easy-to-use interface. The blockchain and underlying smart contract interface can be extended to incorporate a wide range of additional functionality such as programmatic contracts, variable pricing, and payment routing.

Transparency for Ownership and Licensing of Digital Content

Currently, COPYTRACK’s services are geared towards searching for their customers’ images across the web. If there is a successful match, they then move forward with enforcement and licensing. However, they will expand their services to include registering images via the blockchain and provide a new marketplace for artists and buyers.
COPYTRACK will set the precedent for a global, transparent and decentralized register for copyrights of digital content. At the same time, COPYTRACK will implement the first use-case for the decentralized ledger: The Global Copyright Register for Images, followed by a transparent Image Marketplace.
