About Project

KODAKOne is a revolutionary new image rights management and protection platform secured in the blockchain.

The KODAKOne image rights management platform will create an encrypted, digital ledger of rights ownership for photographers to register both new and archive work that they can then license within the platform. KODAKCoin allows participating photographers to take part in a new economy for photography, receive payment for licensing their work immediately upon sale, and sell their work confidently on a secure blockchain platform. Ends March 31.

 

Protecting the storytellers of the image economy
The rise of the internet paired with the ubiquity of mobile devices has fueled growth in both the total number of photos circulated and how that content is used -- much of which is used without the copyright holders permission.

For photographers and those licensing their creative work, the landscape has changed: more images, globally available, has led to lower average license fees for using a picture. The result? More work and less income.

 

Cryptocurrency

With KODAKCoin tokens, payments will be simplified and faster. All stakeholders involved in the licensing process worldwide will receive their share simultaneously according to the terms of the smart contract saved on our Licensing Blockchain. Additionally, it is the driving force behind our marketplace where photographers can purchase almost everything they need in order to succeed in their professional life. (e.g.: Hardware, Software, Travel, Logistics etc.)

Post-Licensing

Our platform functions as a “police officer,” enabling any infringements to be quickly discovered; the platform identifies violations and provides simplified legal proceedings and preservation of evidence; with a friendly approach we aim to recover license fees and convert infringers into customers.

 

Artificial Intelligence

Through AI, the KODAKOne platform will help evaluate, categorize, and enrich images in multiple ways -- helping collect and tag valuable information associated with a certain image to help photographers and agencies effortlessly organize imagery. The KODAKOne platform will also support copyright holders to legally clear their images and make that process as easy as possible.

Big Data

By using AI technology, we will collect and process everything there is to know about an image, including how people are using it digitally. This provides photographers and agencies with realtime intel to assist them with content plans, refining distribution and marketing strategies.

Blockchain
Our digitized, decentralized blockchain ledger will make it easy to store and access information without the need to go through a central authority such as a distributor. You will have much more control over your licensing and most importantly could earn a much higher share of the license fee. It establishes proof of ownership and enables our platform to process license fees in real time using Smart Contracts -- lending both trust and ultimate control to copyright holders worldwide.

Web Crawling
Our web crawlers search millions of websites globally in order to collect active data about the usage of a photograph and to check for a valid license. By using Artificial Intelligence (AI), the more information the crawler collects, the more intelligent and efficient it becomes in data collection and infringement identification over time.
