Blockchain to Enhance Online Copyright Protection in Iran

Iran is set to transform its online copyright protection system by application of blockchain technology, head of digital media department at the Ministry of Culture announced.
“In Iran, application of blockchain technology has been limited to cryptocurrencies and monetary systems. This is while in most developed countries the technology is being used for preserving copyrights,” Morteza Mousavian told Ibena.
According to him, Iranian authorities are resolved to catch up with the global trend. “The Ministry of Culture’s digital media department has forged a deal with a blockchain company to devise a system which can be used to preserve online copyrights.” The company is yet to be named.
“The procedure will be fast and user-friendly.” Initially, each file will receive a 128-bit unique fingerprint also known as a cryptographic hash. The procedure is called hashing and is used to index and retrieve items in databases.
