Monegraph Inc., has announced the launch of “Monegraph Everywhere”, its professional-grade software tools specifically designed for media owners to directly sell use rights to publishers, advertisers and other commercial customers. The next-generation media rights contracts and payments system has been designed and built for preserving and commercializing ownership rights of digital media using blockchain technology as an e-commerce application for creative media.
This system extends what media owners can do online to directly promote, distribute and monetize their media by removing the need to use photo stock houses, brokers or other third party marketing providers.
Features of Monegraph Everywhere include media rights registration and global ownership recognition, licensing options and secure rights transfer,. The blockchain is used to cryptographically secure registration of digital media ownership rights and can support images, video, music and documents of various formats. There are a number of customizable and pre-set licensing contracts and authenticated, secure and legally binding digital contracts with management of sub-rights
CEO of Monegraph, Kevin McCoy stated: “Transparent and simple, our goal has always been to facilitate distribution of creative media with the confidence that all interests are being accounted for and getting paid.”
Multiple distribution and monetization channels have been announced, including a free Monegraph e-commerce catalogue, Internet browser widgets , iPhone and Android Apps, social media integration platforms and open Application Program Interface (API) for custom enterprise deployments.
Chris Tse, co-founder and CTO of Monegraph, said: “With Monegraph Everywhere we have overcome the technical hurdle of discretely tracking ownership of digital media and legally binding the transfer of use rights over the web, so creators can produce awesome content and without complexity, share purchasable media to thousands of buyers over social media or via their e-commerce enabled online catalogs.”
