The Mediachain Project: Developing a Global Creative Rights Database Using Blockchain Technology

Alan Rothman’s article focuses on a creative, innovative effort to deploy the blockchain as a form of global registry of creative works ownership – specifically a global rights database for images.

The implications of this technology impact multiple sectors such as: legal, financial, libraries, museums and archives, and social media.
