Blockai: Democratizing Copyright

The internet has changed almost everything. But it hasn’t changed copyright. In fact, it’s made it more difficult for artists to protect their work by making it free and instant to copy. The technology companies that could help artists, were built upon economic models that deter them from doing so.

It is crazy to think that with all the web has to offer, there is no simple way to identify the copyright ownership for files on the web. No way to respect the creators or determine how to pay a license or royalty. No way for you to know when your copyright was violated.
