China Patent Office by Huawei telecom giant the Blockcha ‘Le issued the relevant patent file.
The file describes a Blockchain-based verification system for the protection of intellectual property rights for digital content on a peer-to-peer (P2P) network.
In this system all validation data such as a copyright holder’s identity and digital content access point are permanently recorded on the Blockchain network.
When a user submits a download request on the P2P network, the verification system will compare it by defining its own private key or license without giving access to the content. If the application matches all of the validation data, the download permissions will only be released by the Blockchain based platform.
