Binded, the world’s first online copyright platform, is slated to launch on May 25 to assist creators in copyrighting their content. The process is quite simple: digital photographers, artists, graphic designers, and viral video-makers upload their work to a private copyright vault. From there, an individual fingerprint is created and saved permanently on a bitcoin blockchain. After, the user receives a copyright certificate with proof of creation, while Binded searches the web to make sure there are no copyright infringements.
So far, Binded has expanded its services to social-media platforms Instagram and Twitter. Binded wants to make it possible to link every creative tool to enable seamless copyright claims at the time of creation, the company said in a press release.
“Japan is one of the largest creators of copyrights. We’re excited to have partners that can help us better understand and serve the Japanese market in the future,” said Nathan Lands, Co-founder & CEO of Binded. “Today the tools to protect creative works are outdated and poorly suited for modern technology. We are going to change that.”
With a recent investment of $950k USD, Binded’s total capital raised, thus far, is $1.5 million USD. The company plans to use a portion of its funding to hire more staff, build new integrations into the site, and add the ability to register copyrights with the U.S. Copyright Office.
Visit Binded on May 25.
