Sony uses blockchain to protect the rights
More and more companies working in different fields of activity develop and implement technology solutions based on the blockbuster. In particular, Sony filed a patent application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for the patent system for the storage of digital rights records, which is based on a continuous sequential chain of blocks.

The report notes that the existing mechanisms of digital rights management have a number of shortcomings. First of all, they can not always provide the necessary level of security. If the provider responsible for managing digital rights for some reason ceases to work, then users will be at risk of access to content.

Blockchain, in turn, guarantees reliable protection of information, so the buyers of materials will not lose access to them in similar situations.

In Sony, it is expected that the application of technology would be most significant for various media data, including movies. In this case, the development could be used to manage digital rights to music, games, TV shows, as well as other content.

By the way, the corporation is not the first time paying attention to the technology of blockchain. Earlier, she appealed to the patent office with the idea of creating a block-system of user authentication.
