Linius to “Blockchain protects digital assets more comprehensively than other anti-piracy measures”

Following its feature – What’s The Future Of Blockchain In The Entertainment Industry? – blockchain news and commentary site penned a follow-up piece focusing on the benefits the technology would bring to the industry.

Turning once more to its panel of experts, the What Are the Benefits of Blockchain In the Entertainment Industry? article sought-out industry views on the matter, including those of Linius CEO, Chris Richardson.

The benefits of video blockchain

“Fundamentally, blockchain technology protects digital assets more comprehensively than other anti-piracy measures,” said Richardson. “It protects digital assets more comprehensively than visual markers alone.

“Most digital content today is tagged and tracked via archaic anti-copyright infringement technology, including watermarking as well as CAP coding (a distinguishing pattern of dots added during post-production, used as a forensic identifier to pinpoint the source of illegal copies). But it is not well protected.

“The protection such technologies offer does not thwart film copying, sharing and other forms of content piracy, because there are many ways to circumvent them, including file compression, cropping, color variations and erasure of logos using content editing software. A simple Google search will uncover a variety of apps that have been developed specifically to remove digital watermarks.

“Visual markers merely allow copies to be traced back to the original piece of content once it’s already been pirated. And that’s too little too late.”

About Linius Technologies Limited:

Linius Technologies Limited (ASX: LNU) has invented and patented the Video Virtualization Engine™ (VVE), which is available on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and IBM Cloud.

Amazon, Microsoft and IBM are investing billions in virtualizing ‘video services’ (technologies) and Artificial Intelligence in the cloud[1]. It is arguably the biggest battle on the internet, given that video accounts for nearly 80 percent of internet traffic[2].

Only Linius can expose the data that makes up the video file, making cumbersome video as flexible as all other forms of data. Accessing the data within the video file is the missing link for video cloud service providers, creating unparalleled value across the internet video industry.

Linius’ VVE-powered Video Hyper-Personalization and Search Solution enables anyone to instantly search the data within video, from across an infinite number of sources, and automatically assemble the results in a single stream on-the-fly. No human hands required.

Linius is revolutionizing the way organizations and individuals across the globe produce, deliver and consume video, enabling previously impossible hyper-personalized video experiences.

It’s a breakthrough set to disrupt entire multi-billion-dollar industries. Linius is initially focused on delivering its Video Hyper-Personalization and Search Solution to six core markets: News and Media, Sports Broadcasters and Rights Holders, Education, Corporate Communications, Security and Defense, and Sports Betting.
