Blockchain for copyrights

"One of the solutions for protecting intellectual property rights can be blockchain based digital data capture services", says Vadim Subbotin, the head of project development department of the MoviesChain by tvzavr (the platform directly connecting independent filmmakers with viewers). "For example, the allocated registry technology provides access to the relevant intellectual property information to any Internet user without involving any third parties. That ensures security, transparency and provability of copyrights", he explains.
