The big idea

Film and video piracy is a very complex problem, but at its very core, it is derived from two key driving forces:

1) The lack of availability of content at price points that are fair and reasonable
2) The lack of effective deterrents and tracking. is addressing these two core driving forces by creating a proactive, decentralized antipiracy and distribution platform. The platform will be a partially open-source structure that brings together the community most affected by theft & piracy – creative professionals – to help protect that same community from theft & piracy. The platform will be designed as a Software as a Service (SaaS) model to protect content producers.

Business model

The Veredictum platform is being designed to reduce film and video piracy, a $20bn global problem, by attacking the drivers of piracy, not just its symptoms:

  • Consumers not able to access content when they want, how they want and at a price point that is fair.
  • The lack of sufficient deterrents and tracking capabilities.

The platform is being built in 4 phases:

  1. The ownership and distribution rights of producers’ content will be registered formally to a decentralized, global blockchain-enabled registry. A digital fingerprint is inserted into the video which links back to those rights.
  2. Members of the creative community will act as nodes within a decentralized structure to enable the distributed search and detection of digitally fingerprinted video content. By providing their unused computing power and bandwidth, Veredictum will be the SETI* of pirated content. Nodes will be rewarded with VENTANA, our cryptocurrency token.
    • The community will be a strong anti-piracy advocacy and, as a result, will provide the infrastructure to enable “white-hat” peer to peer distribution.
  3. The platform will build a marketplace directly connecting content producers to key market influencers & their “tribes”, who can buy content at defined market prices.
  4. Content producers get access to new performance-based targeted wholesale channels.

Collectively, content would be available more easily and at market-based pricing with enhanced deterrents further providing incentives for consumers to pay for content rather than pirating it.
