Ontology, a blockchain platform, has partnered with OGQ, a social creator platform, to copyright 250 million pieces of digital content.
It has been reported that OGQ allows users to upload and sell unique digital content including emojis, memes, fonts, music, and videos.
Launched in 2011, OGQ has attracted 14 million creators who have uploaded 54 million pieces of digital content to the platform. Digital assets uploaded to the blockchain will also be purchasable in exchange for tokens using Ontology’s OEP-4 token standard.
Andy Ji, the Co-founder of Ontology, said:
“One of the greatest challenges for digital content creators is the ability to maintain copyright over their work.”
“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.”
Also, Ji said that over 200 cases have recognized copyright concerning data uploaded to distributed ledger technology (DLT).
“There are already many such cases in China, including large internet companies such as Alibaba, Baidu, and Tencent. Initial estimates suggest that more than 200 cases should be supported by blockchain for copyright evidence.”
Likewise, Jess Eun, the Blockchain Business Developer of OGQ, gave an overview of how the copyright platform monitors for infringements.
According to him, the content undergoes pre-detection for copyright infringement or duplication usage in order to establish that the content uploaded by each user is unique.
“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.”
Thus, afterward, OGQ plans to engage domestic partners to conduct ongoing monitoring for copyright infringement, while providing global coverage through Google vision API and Tineye API.
