The Japanese electronics giant Sony announced the adaption of the blockchain technology in order to improve and upgrade its systems of work.
As stated in the official press release of the company:
“This new system is based on Sony and Sony Global Education’s previously developed system for authenticating, sharing, and rights management of educational data, and additionally features functionality for processing rights-related information.”
Different branches of Sony will utilize blockchain for similar purposes, but in different spheres, namely:
1. Sony Corporation, which is actually a producer of electronic devices, will create a special management structure on blockchain. It will help keep track of copyright of particular digital content and protect it from any type of violation.
2. Sony Music Entertainment will use the system while focusing mainly on music-related content. Given the amount of music stolen nowadays, Sony representatives believe that their innovation might help smaller artists keep ownership to their own music.
3. Sony Global Education aims at revolutionizing the sphere of education. Blockchain will be used to manage and distribute information and store educational content.
This is not the first time the company touched upon blockchain. In the past, it submitted around 20 different blockchain-related patents and made it into top-30 businesses that work with this technology.
Sony is not the only electronic device producer that took interest in blockchain. We remind you:
