Copytrack revolutionizes how creators protect, track and monetize their work by using blockchain and smart contracts technology.

Copytrack is the undisputed market leader in uncovering image theft with headquarters in Berlin and Singapore, and subsidiaries in New York and Tokyo. With our upcoming ICO we set the precedent for a global, transparent and decentralized register for copyrights of digital content.


TOKEN SALE INFO:
Copytrack’s token pre-sale is open now and will be followed by the crowd sale on Jan 10th, 2018. Minimum: 0.1 ETH. Maximum: 2,500 ETH


Copytrack Vision & Market Overview

Whilst the digital image market is growing exponentially with more than 2 billion images uploaded every day, up to 85% of images online are used without a valid license. Photographers suffer an enormous financial loss and are often unaware that their images are being copied and distributed elsewhere.

On the other end of the spectrum, the image licensing market is controlled by only a few players that keep up to 70% of revenue to themselves. Copytrack is here to change that.

By introducing a distributed database for images, we are moving image copyright registration, licensing and payments to the blockchain. This will reshape how photographers and creators protect, track and monetize their work in the following ways:

1. No more image theft
By registering images directly on the blockchain, all their usage and distribution will be registered. Creators are automatically notified whenever an image is being used.

2. Global copyright database
The open and global database of rights-holders and their work allows users to easily license and track their creative work.

3. Fair & transparent compensation
The CPY token directly connects creators and clients and facilitates transactions via smart contracts. Creatives are in full control of their own pricing and licensing options without any intermediaries, who nowadays take cuts of up to 70%.

About Copytrack

Copytrack is the undisputed market leader in uncovering image theft with headquarters in Berlin and Singapore and subsidiaries in New York and Tokyo. Over the past three years we have helped the photography community to claim image rights in over 50.000 of unsolicited use cases.

With the Copytrack Global Copyright Register, we are taking digital copyright registration to the next level. It is our goal is to provide a solution for the key challenges of digital content copyright as they still exist today:

  • How to proof digital content authorship globally?
  • How to track illegal use globally?
  • How to license digital content globally?

Don't work.
Very very hard to find images because if you resize or edit in any way the hash value change. When you save for web all exif data on images are deleted.
The best way to find stolen images is https://images.google.com. They use advanced image recognition trained with AI.
When you find stolen images the problem is to get payment. Most images are used on privat profiles.
But the problem are real. Points for trying.

Official statement on KodakOne

Many of you asked us about the latest news on Kodak's planned ICO. Here's the statement of our CEO, Marcus Schmitt:

“It’s always been our mission to improve the protection of photographers and rightsholders online. It’s been a great recognition to be supported by over 1600 backers who have invested a total of $ 7.6 million USD in our vision to democratize copyright and prevent image theft for photographers – and this was just the pre-sale.

Unlike Copytrack, KodakOne is still in the preparation stage. We can only state 3 key differences and facts between KodakOne’s planned ICO and Copytrack’s Global Copyright Register so far:

  • KodakOne is a brand licensing cooperation between Kodak and Wenn Digital Inc., a Delaware company founded in Nov.2017. Copytrack has a proven track record of several years and has developed its technology fully in-house with enforcement services in 140 countries.
  • KodakOne plans to solely register images on the blockchain while Copytrack’s “Global Copyright Register” is an open blockchain for any type of digital content (images, music, video, etc.).
  • KodakOne’s ICO will be a closed sale that’s only accessible to accredited investors, whereas Copytrack keeps its ICO open to all investors of the blockchain and cryptocurrency community

We can’t comment on KodakOne’s technology as neither their system nor their whitepaper are available yet.

At Copytrack we strongly believe that blockchain and cryptocurrencies set the foundation of the internet’s future. It’s exciting to be part of it and help creators protect, track and monetize their work with the Global Copyright Register. Our main sale ICO still runs until February 10”, concludes Schmitt.

It seems that everything is authentic here. But needs exposure. Even this thread has slow movement. Maybe run a sig campaign at least? Just a suggestion though.  Wink

After 1 month running it seems the project still looks very calm. I think you should do something to make this project look more alive. My question is whether this project also has a bounty campaign?

I would like to answer your question. Maybe project looks calm, but potential benefits for society are huge.

Yes, Copytrack project has a bounty campaign.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2711071.0

Ico will last 20 days, it is good time to join and support the project.

yes, I really agree with you, I think the funding progress of this project is quite good, and total coins that have been sold now is 8 881 784 CPY while the remaining time is still 18 days.
and I am still curious about the soft cap of this project, does anyone know how much is the soft cap of ICO copytrack?
