Blockchain: The Future of Intellectual Property Protection

For centuries, inventors and entrepreneurs have often been hesitant to share new ideas for fear of these ideas getting stolen. There is substantial value in sharing developing ideas to get feedback, and proof of concept, however, there’s also a risk in doing so. The traditional ways of protecting intellectual property—copyrights, trademarks, and patents— are slow, expensive, and cumbersome.

This talk proposes another way of protecting intellectual property that’s faster, easier, and cheaper all made possible through blockchain technology. Through the creation of tamper-proof, time-stamped, digital smart contracts, creators can now protect intellectual property with greater ease, flexibility, and speed. Blockchains enable a public ledger that’s decentralized, distributed, and global to prove ownership. The result is a new world of innovation and abundance.

The system proposed in this talk not only allows those who have used traditional protection mechanisms like copyright to have a faster way to protect their property, it provides a much more accessible option for those who could not afford traditional methods of intellectual property.

IP in Web3: Kary Oberbrunner talks intellectual property protection

by COINGEEK (London)

Intellectual property (IP) is a thorny business. Most would recognize it as an entirely necessary institution within a capitalist society and the key to ensuring that innovation is sufficiently rewarded to encourage more of it. However, while IP promotes and protects innovation, it necessarily fetters and restricts it on the other hand. IP belonging to one inventor will inevitably narrow the field, even if only slightly, for future innovators.

Decades of legal dicta and academia have covered this tension well. However, as more aspects of the physical world become digitized and the volumes of data being produced and exploited grow exponentially over the years, new means of protecting IP will arise. As such, the topic demands renewed attention.

Enter Kary Oberbrunner, CEO of Easy IP. Oberbrunner is a bestselling author and IP stalwart within the Web3 space, helping authors and entrepreneurs protect the intellectual fruits of their labor…
