CONNECTING A WORK WITH ITS CREATOR AND RIGHTS OWNER
While digital service providers profit from an abundance of content, creators have difficulty monetizing their work when anyone can upload content and claim it as their own. We call this the attribution problem.
At Prescient, we’re solving this problem by working with writers, visual artists, and publishers to develop an Attribution Ledger. Using blockchain technology and machine learning, it will establish a reliable and authoritative connection between a creative work, its lawful creator and rights owner.
A COMMUNITY OF CREATORS AND FANS UNITED BY A LOVE OF READING
Creators can build their audience by uploading ebooks to Fanship where readers are rewarded for recommending their favourite titles to friends, family and fellow readers. Rewards can be donated to great causes, gifted to authors or applied to future purchases. Recommending books supports authors by spreading the word of their great work and increasing their readership. Fanship uses the Attribution Ledger to verify all rights holder information for works uploaded to the site.
Misattribution is a significant problem in the art world. In Canada, art collectors have few resources to validate information about their purchases and encrypted digital transactions may exacerbate the challenge. The Digital Passport will use blockchain technology to create a registry for artists, buyers and the general public to verify and confirm the provenance of artwork and its rights holders.
By Late 2019 the following services will be available to a select set of Creators.
