How can Blockchain put an end to piracy?
  • Over the last two decades, the popularity of
    content streaming has skyrocketed in large part
    due to the convenience and easy availability of
    digital content. As internet bandwidths have
    increased, so has the ease with which content can
    be pirated.This is a problem that has plagued
    every form of digital media from songs, to books
    and movies since the inception of the internet in
    the early 90s.The reason for this surge in piracy
    is that it is easy to copy media from one device
    to another. That is why the concept of using
    blockchain to curb piracy holds so much promise.
    Heres a look at what makes blockchains a good
    way to fight piracy.

What does blockchain bring to the table
against piracy
  • In very basic terms, a blockchain is a
    tamper-resistant ledger that cannot be
    manipulated by any single group of people. The
    network of users called miners help protect the
    network and make administrative decisions about
    the future of the blockchain. For the first time
    since the beginning of the internet, this has
    enabled us to make digital assets that cannot be
    counterfeited. For example, every Bitcoin created
    since its inception is unique with its history of
    transactions that cannot be altered.

  • Clearly, this has a lot of implications for
    banking and finance but its influence is sure to
    extend far beyond to industries like logistics
    and food safety among others. Blockchain relies
    on public key cryptography to ensure that
    messages are signed by the owners of the right
    private keys which are used to prove identity.
    These same private keys can be used for much more
    than just sending transactions and in fact, can
    be used to verify the authenticity of any type of
    digital goods. These private keys combined with
    smart contracts can be used to track the
    consumption of digital content across the
    internet and make sure that the original creator
    gets the fair share of the proceeds from the
    work.

More Equitable sharing with Artists
  • Blockchain-based project SingularDTV is one of
    the most innovative projects in this space that
    is looking to shake things up for the way we
    consume content online. Singulars model consists
    of tokenising the content itself so that the
    creator can raise funds by selling shares of
    the work. After the work is done, and media is
    being consumed, the original creator and early
    investors get paid for the ad revenue using smart
    contracts. Due to the advent of blockchains, now
    it is easier than ever to track every piece of
    digital content across all of the websites where
    it is embedded.

  • The smart contracts take care of the
    book-keeping required to settle payments and make
    sure that intermediaries arent screwing the
    artists out of their commissions while at the
    same time ensuring that all of the usage is being
    accounted.As we have already seen with platforms
    like Netflix and Spotify, piracy is significantly
    decreased when the users are given easy access to
    the content that they want to consume. Users
    prefer to watch advertisements in between their
    videos rather than having to outright having to
    pay for the content.

  • This is where the Basic Attention Token comes
    into play. The BAT platform along the Brave
    browser is creating the first ad-based economy
    for digital content. The premise is this instead
    of having to pay money to get rid of ads in
    premium services like YouTube Red, users could
    watch the commercials and earn cryptocurrency BAT
    right from within their browsers. The browser
    ships with a built-in ad blocker that can be
    disabled to earn BAT tokens. All of the
    book-keeping required to handle payments is
    handled from within the browser, and therefore a
    users data is never send to a centralised
    server.
