Copyright protects our works like softwares, phones, video games, music and movies. When you own the copyright to any of these works, you control the use and commercial exploitation of these works. Which means that you are the only person who has the right to prevent others from reproducing, publishing, performing, communicating to the public, or adapting your work.
However, the copyright infringement has a number of direct and indirect costs to the economy, and many people are involved in.
According to DeptComms Online Copyright Infringement Report, Overall, across all four content types, 4 in 10 content consumers (43%) had consumed at least some illegal files, corresponding to a quarter of all internet users (26%). 1 in 10 content consumers (12%) and 7% of all internet users consumed all their files illegally.
Directly, copyright infringement results in a loss of income for businesses in copyright industries, potentially depriving industries of ingenuity and innovation, as creators are unable to sustain themselves from their incomes. Indirectly, it can be argued that copyright infringements affect tax revenue, jobs, economic development, incomes levels and foreign investment.

Copyright protection is automatic under international law, but in the event that your work is infringed evidence may be required to support your claim. So ensuring the best protection for your work relies on several factors.
One of the techs used by IPSE is IPCID powered by Blockchain.
The IPSE copyright protection system uses the model of file hash address registration as the basic means to assign permanent CID codes and PKI signatures to digital works on distributed networks, and it establishes a traceable, reliable, and verifiable copyright security certification system by using encryption technology, digital signatures, trusted certificates, smart contracts, etc.
CID (Content ID) is the content mark code. After the work (or copyright content) get its unique Hash address, the exclusive CID is obtained. But it is not enough. After development,IPSE has started the new IPCID system by uniting the Hashlink technology by IPSE and CID that being widely used. IPCID is used to automatically identify the copyrighted content, and greatly reduce the cost of copyright registration. In addition, copyright claims based on IPCID, through the intelligent contract mechanism to protect the interests of the copyright party.
Copyright protection exists from the time the work is created in a fixed, tangible form of expression. The copyright in the work of authorship immediately becomes the property of the author who created the work.With IPSE copyright protection system built on Blockchain, it can make the content secure and avoid copyright infringement.
In the U.S., copyright is a form of protection provided by the government, In Singapore copyright is essentially covered under the Copyright Act (Cap. 63). A person found guilty of copyright infringement could be liable for civil and criminal sanctions depending on the nature of the offending acts. The thing is that the US government is not what public should fully trust. The government is centralized. and a centralized form of government is one in which all power is held by a single authority or by a group of people.
“Governments say monopolies are bad, but they’ll toss you in jail for competing with their own monopoly.”

From now on, copyright will be a form of protection provided by Blockchain technologies. In that case, does a perfect copyright protection system exist? IPSE is trying to I protect your work, it builds on IPFS and Blockchain. And distributed system is the future. In addition, we would like to share more about the IPSE ecosystem, tell you more about how IPFS set a convenient way to pay and use the work, and why it will be mutually beneficial for both authors and users? Stay tuned.
