Nowadays, even famous YouTubers can’t get away with copyright issues, and some have ended up with a terminated channel!

Content copyright is increasingly getting attention. Companies and individuals using third-party contents in their business must go through this topic to avoid copyright infringement.

So where can they find images, stickers, and music that won’t put themselves in trouble?

Today, I will introduce OGQ Market to you.

What is OGQ Market?

OGQ market is a social creator platform where everyone can easily become a creator to upload and sell contents. Creators in various fields gather at this platform to communicate directly with fans from around the world. They can even get 70% of revenues from content sales in this market.

In Naver OGQ Market, users can download and buy asset contents from various creators, and easily use them in Naver Blog, Naver Café and so on. More than 38,000 creators have joined the Naver OGQ Market, and the number is expected to exceed 40,000 soon.

In AfreecaTV OGQ Market, users can use purchased asset contents in AfreecaTV’s broadcast channel, comment zone, subscription section, etc. OGQ is also planning to expand the asset content service to TV and VOD channels in AfreecaTV. (AfreecaTV is the top live-video platform in South Korea).

How is OGQ protecting creators’ copyright?

In June 2019, OGQ was selected as the UCI* Registration and Management Agency by the Korean Copyright Commission. (*UCI: Universal Content Identifier. It is a national identification system that attaches a sole and permanent code to each digital content.)

In other words, creators who want to have their copyright protected can upload contents to OGQ Market, where OGQ will assure and protect their copyright through the UCI code system.

To make the revenue-sharing system securer and more transparent, OGQ is also developing block-chain-based environment for creators.
