Blockchain-based copyright protection
Blockchain is a decentralized technology used to protect the security and privacy of online transactions and is usually associated with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. However, it can be applied to all kinds of digital exchanges. In a new study, Amna Qureshi and professor David Megías, director of the IN3, analyzed existing blockchain-based multimedia content protection systems and established a taxonomy to classify them according to their technical features, the protection techniques they use and their performance. The study is the first detailed analysis of this type of application and looks at the technological and scientific challenges for their improvement and implementation.
The researchers said: "Blockchain has an excellent potential to be broadly applied in copyright protection and management applications. However, there are still many open issues that need to be further researched and analyzed in order to create workable copyright protection applications that can fully benefit from the use of the blockchain technology."
