AUG 22, 2017
Dot Blockchain Media Inc. ("dotBC"), announced today that it has selected the Linux Foundation's Hyperledger Sawtooth as the platform for recording its content rights registry for the media industries. Hyperledger Sawtooth is an open-source blockchain framework originally contributed to the Linux Foundation by Intel. dotBC's announcement is a key advancement in the development of its blockchain initiative to bring clarity and transparency to the complex data, rights and payment issues in today's music and media industries.
dotBC's blockchain implementation is a foundation for music and media rights expression into the works themselves. It creates a fair and transparent method for music composers, artists, publishers and rights holders to express their rights and wishes for commercializing their art into a modern and interoperable file format. dotBC maintains partnerships and connections in the music and wider media industries to enable seamless data exchanges between more than 63 million globally recorded works from independent and major label artists and the dotBC ecosystem. Data is maintained across a distributed network that utilizes Hyperledger Sawtooth.
"Hyperledger Sawtooth will enable us to scale rapidly and customize transaction processors specifically for ingesting rights data. We look forward to delivering a strong and lasting solution, anchored on a sophisticated and secure blockchain foundation, for the music and media industries with Intel," said Benji Rogers, CEO of Dot Blockchain Media.
