Comcast et de nombreux partenaires dont TF1 lancent une blockchain pour la publicité vidéo

La technologie de Comcast et de nombreux partenaires dont TF1 lancent une blockchain pour la publicité vidéo – la même qui est en amont des monnaies virtuelles, des systèmes logistiques ou de transactions inter-bancaires pour garantir leur sécurité – est de plus en plus évoquée en publicité. Ce serait la solution idéale pour sécuriser les données si nombreuses y circulant, et surtout pour empêcher leur « fuite » ( data leakage ) grâce au principe qui la fonde : une manière transparente et décentralisée de stocker et de transmettre des données et où tout ce qui s’y passe, chaque échange, est inscrit de manière doublement voire triplement sécurisée, formant des blocs au sein d’une chaîne, qui autorisent ainsi des échanges de pair à pair, sans intermédiation. Mais quel rapport avec la publicité ? La dernière annonce en date est celle du groupe de médias américain Comcast, premier opérateur de télévision par câble aux Etats-Unis et second plus im
portant fournisseur de réseau à haut débit sur Internet, qui lance une blockchain privée avec de nombreux partenaires parmi lesquels NBC Universal, Disney, Altice USA, Channel 4, Cox Communications, Inc., Mediaset Italia et le Groupe TF1. Cette « Blockchain Insights Platform » servira à faciliter l’échange sécurisé de données d’audience anonymisées dans le cadre de […]

La gestion des droits de la musique fait sa révolution informatique (3e partie)

La gestion des droits de la musique fait sa révolution informatique (3e partie)Dossier Normalisation des échanges, libération des métadonnées, transparence et équité, efficience, blockchain … A l’heure des réseaux ouverts et du tout numérique, l’informatique révolutionne la gestion des droits de la musique. Un dossier en 3 parties par Philippe Astor. 3e partie BLOCKCHAIN ET DEEP-LEARNING S’INVITENT DANS LA GESTION DES DROITS Troisième et dernier volet de ce dossier, cet article fait le point sur les initiatives internationales engagées pour la conception d’un registre mondial adapté à la musique. On est bien là dans un opérationnel informatique où les technologies de blockchain pourraient prendre toute leur place. Dans une étude publiée à l’occasion du Midem 2015, sous le titre « Fair Music : Transparency and Paiement Flows in the Music Industry » , le collectif Rethink Music — créé à l’initiative du Berklee College of Music et de l’Université de Harvard aux Etats-Unis ¬— s’est penché sur ce que seraient les modalités d’une plus grande transparence dans la répartition de leurs droits aux créateurs de la musique. Au-delà du numérique, Rethink Music englobe dans son analyse toutes les sources de revenus des auteurs et des artistes, et pointe du doigt les nombreuses déperditions de droits dont ils sont victimes. « On […]

The MTP Interview: Alan Graham’s Artist’s Guide to Blockchain, Open Music Initiative, Smart Contracts and Dark Social (Part 1)

The MTP Interview: Alan Graham’s Artist’s Guide to Blockchain, Open Music Initiative, Smart Contracts and Dark Social (Part 1)

Chris Castle: Tell us a little bit about your background and your company. How did you come to be involved with the Open Music Initiative? Alan Graham : For 25 years I’ve worked as a technologist, author, editor, designer, and producer. I became active in technology because I believed it could be force for equality, however the idealism of my 20’s has taken a more pragmatic view. I feel the desire to free ourselves from gatekeepers has only created more gatekeepers. Three years ago I had a moment of inspiration via a conversation with my friend and co-founder, the legendary Producer/Artist/Songwriter Rupert Hine, on how to solve the issues around user-generated content. Billions, if not trillions of improper uses of all forms of creative works occur every day, a majority of which have no proper tracking or monetization. This lack of accountability creates massive animosity and distrust between citizens, rights owners, and developers. That needs to stop. We need to unify and bring a balance between all the parties involved. We need to be partners, not adversaries, and that requires more than technology, it needs new methodologies. We need to question the accepted models we’ve found ourselves in, because […]

The MTP Interview: Alan Graham’s Artist’s Guide to Blockchain, Open Music Initiative, Smart Contracts and Dark Social (Part 2)

This post is Part 2 of the MTP Interview with Alan Graham. Read Part 1 here . Chris Castle: How are licensing payments fulfilled using blockchain? Alan Graham : Hard to say exactly without examining an actual business model, but for the sake of argument, currently the mechanism for this would require the use of a crypto currency. One of the benefits of something like Bitcoin is that parties who require payment can have what’s called an “address” and payments can be “instantly” made to this address. There are a few a negative sides to this however. Nothing is free. In order to ensure a prompt delivery of payment, there is a cost associated. The party sending the payment is the one who pays the fee. For large payments, this isn’t cost prohibitive, but once you start delving into a micropayment world of fractional pennies per “play” this cost is quite significant. Now you can do “free” transactions, but there are drawbacks to that and not a topic worth going into at this point. So if we looked at a DSP platform like Spotify, it would be pointless for them to send billions of payments out each month, which […]

The Core Flaw of Blockchain+pdf

The truth about blockchain is that at its core, it requires its regime to be enforced on rights owners in order to scale–and that is its essential flaw. Call me a blockchain skeptic. I agree with many of the conclusions reached by Alan Graham in his MusicTechPolicy interview , but I also think that at its core, blockchain as currently contemplated fails as an industry-wide rights registry. Since I understand that its essential purpose is to be a reliable rights registry, it seems obvious to me that blockchain has limited application at best . I spent a good deal of time helping some very smart people build an independent rights registry around 2005 and have thought about these issues for a long time. (All the major labels and many indies participated in that registry.) Based on that experience, I believe that the core value proposition of a rights registry is that it be easy to use; that the information in it be objectively verified and only changed with a proper showing of authority; that it be capable of making or directing the making of royalty payments (which means holding necessary tax information); and that it can be easily and […]

Blockchain to fundamentally change the society in which we live – Gartner – EconoTimes

Gartner, a leading research and advisory firm, sees significant potential in blockchain and distributed ledger technologies and consider it to be one of the ‘Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2017’.

Speaking at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo on the Gold Coast, David Furlonger, research vice president and Gartner Fellow, said the implications of blockchain technology for our society go beyond our imagination.

“This is not about the technology, it’s about trust,” said Furlonger. “We now have a digital capability to represent any form of value that is privately issued – you can become your own banker, insurance agent or foreign exchange teller. What does that mean for how society operates today? What are the implications for governance, our tax system and our legal framework?”

Blockchain : Etat des lieux et prospective

C’était le mot magique de 2016 ; cristallisant tous les fantasmes, se parant de mille vertus, la «blockchain» a probablement atteint pendant l’année le pic de la hype, avec le deep learning et après le big data et l’IoTso 2015. Mais que se cache-t-il réellement derrière ce terme, où en est la technologie et que pouvons-nous en attendre en 2017 ?

Blockchain, qui es-tu, d’où viens-tu, que fais-tu ?

Qu’est-ce que la blockchain ? Sans revenir sur les bases techniques des chaînes de blocs, qui ont été abordées ici et plus largement ici, revenons sur ses caractéristiques, ce que cette technologie permet et qui suscite cette ferveur.

La promesse, c’est le stockage et la transmission d’actifs immatériels transparents, sécurisés et sans intermédiaire. Pour tenir cette promesse, la technologie doit offrir :

  • le stockage et la transmission d’informations : une base de données ;

  • entre personnes individualisées : utilisant des méthodes d’identification sécurisées et chiffrées ;

  • sans intermédiaire défini : distribuée entre ses participants ;

  • transparente : publique et librement accessible, au moins par ses utilisateurs ;

  • sécurisée : disposant d’un protocole de consensus résistant aux attaques.

On peut donc considérer que les technologies qui ne remplissent pas

Digital currency sales take off, but with no regulation questions abound

Digital currency sales take off, but with no regulation questions aboundA Bitcoin (virtual currency) paper wallet with QR codes and a coin are seen in an illustration picture taken at La Maison du Bitcoin in Paris, France, May 27, 2015. REUTERS/Benoit Tessier/File Photo NEW YORK (Reuters) – A small, but rapidly growing number of digital technology start-ups is raising cash by creating and selling their own currencies in offerings that bypass banks or venture capital firms as intermediaries and are outside the reach of financial regulators. Investors are being drawn in on hopes that such “initial coin offerings” will match or exceed the performance of the first digital currency, bitcoin. For the sellers, the appeal of selling their own currencies, or tokens, to raise cash is enormous. There is no paperwork as would be required for a public securities sale. But the lack of regulatory oversight is raising red flags among some market experts and financial technology lawyers, some of whom even question the legality of the tokens. Joe Zhou says he needed just 58 seconds to sell enough tokens to meet the roughly $5.5 million fund-raising target for FirstBlood, the online gaming website he co-founded. “We had expected the sale to run for a month and we even […]

La Blockchain est aujourd’hui un buzzword en passe de dépasser le Big Data en termes de notoriété comme le montre ce graphe sur Google Trends.

Mais l’engouement médiatique se justifie car cette technologie semble avoir le même potentiel de disruption que le web il y a 30 ans.

De nombreux secteurs vont être bouleversés, en commençant évidemment par la finance et l’assurance, mais également pour prendre quelques exemples : l’IoT, la sharing economy, les droits d’auteur, l’aide humanitaire, les tests médicaux, les notaires, voire le financement des start-ups via la DAO, etc.

The Inevitable Blockchain [Infographic]

The Inevitable Blockchain [Infographic]Blockchain, the technology underpinning bitcoin, is one of the most important innovations since the development of the Internet. It has generated a lot of interest lately and it is likely to continue in view of the broadening adoption. The globe’s leading banks are starting to realize they need to embrace innovative technologies in order to stay competitive in today’s digitized world. Financial services providers are actively investing in various blockchain projects aimed at exploring the potential use cases of the technology. A major software solutions provider, Sopra Banking Software , has published blockchain infographics that highlight the main benefits of the techno
logy and analyze its potential role in the future of the banking industry. One of the most important benefits of the cryptocurrency technology, the company stated, is that it eliminates the need to deal with intermediaries. Unlike current centralized systems, which depend on a single entity, the blockchain has no central ledger. The distributed nature of approving transactions makes it hard to compromise the system. Voting management is one of the other areas that can be improved with the cryptocurrency technology. The use of the blockchain can retain the simplicity of electronic voting while providing an increased security. […]

The blockchain is the flying car of finance: buy a jet car – BNP Paribas Corporate & Institional Banking

The blockchain is the flying car of finance – and it has finally arrived. But before we take the wheel, we need to figure out how to regulate its use.

In 1969 a TV programme in the UK called “Tomorrow’s World” demonstrated a computer-run banking system which made payments between banks and shops via the phone network. Described as “the electronic equivalent of many thousand ledger clerks” the programme noted that £6 million of payments were ‘bounced’ each year as a result of cheques being written out for accounts that did not have the funds to support them.

“[The electronic system] is ‘bounce-proof’,” said reporter Derek Cooper. “It simply won’t work unless you have cash or credit at the bank.”

47 years later, we have not yet reached that reality. The system, at least in the UK, is still run on an overnight batch process; real-time processing still belongs to the future.

Thailand-based Copyrobo unveils blockchain-based copyright management service

“Blockchain” by deavmi. Licensed under CC BY-SA 4.0. As the official website of the U.S. Copyright Office notes, copyright protection for an original work of authorship subsists from the time that the work is created in fixed form . That is, once the work is created, U.S. copyright law considers the author of that work to hold copyright protection over the work, with or without copyright registration. However, the growth of digital forms of media has created a problem for copyright owners as it has become very simple for copyright protections to be infringed upon through content sharing. Consider the recent copyright infringement action filed against Donald Trump for his presidential campaign’s use of a copyright-protected picture on Twitter, allowing thousands of individuals to continue the copyright infringement by retweeting the original post. There are a multitude of publication services available through the Internet which greatly increases the ease of committing such infringement. A tech company situated in Thailand is hoping to offer a service which helps copyright owners manage their copyright-protected property more effectively. A recent press release from Copyrobo announced a web- and app-based service which can provide timestamped evidence of documents, video and music. The release […]

How blockchain startups are driving an under-the-radar fundraising boom

  • How blockchain startups are driving an under-the-radar fundraising boomFew investors even on Wall Street are aware that over $220 million has been raised in the past three years through Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). ICOs are a new form of investment, somewhere between an IPO and a Kickstarter, in which new blockchain ventures sell a digital currency they create to use with their software before the software itself is written. ICOs are easy money nowadays, and I’ve participated in a few myself; but when it came to my own blockchain startup, I urged that we avoid this Wild West of finance. Not t
    hat there’s any doubt blockchain technology will see huge successes. Bitcoin and blockchain tech will change our lives as substantially as the personal computer and the Internet did before it. But while the word “dot-com” was on the tip of everyone’s tongue in the late ’90s, the blockchain investment boom is largely happening under the radar due to this ICO phenomenon. Just like early dot-coms, the problem with ICOs is there is simply not enough skepticism. With little more than a white paper and a website, teams have raised as much as $180 million from scores of individual investors. There is no fiduciary duty from the company to the investor and no real penalty for not living up to the hype. ICOs are typically open for investment for a certain duration of time, after which the funds are available to the startup. Nearly all the incoming funds are in the form of Bitcoin, but there is also a considerable ecosystem around Bitcoin’s primary competitor, Ethereum. At some point after the funds are raised, the organization issues investors units of the new digital currency. Because the currency derives its value from the software being built, it functions somewhat like an investment in the software project itself. To […]
