Detailed description

Decentralized Accessible Content Chain (DACC) is a platform that will revolutionize the digital content and media industry. DACC will establish a public blockchain that features content ownership and access management at the infrastructure level. A decentralized file system that contains intrinsic identity and access management (IAM) will be implemented to give users and content creators methods to securely initiate, store, and manage access permissions to their data and IP. 

IAM ensures that only authenticated users can access the resources they are authorized to use, and resource owners will have full control over the user authentication and authorization process. In addition to this underlying infrastructure, a full suite of developer tools will also be created which will allow any user or entity to easily build and develop content-related decentralized applications (DAPP’s) for any content-related platform on top of DACC.

In addition to this underlying infrastructure, a full suite of developer tools will also be created which will allow any user or entity to easily build and develop content-related decentralized applications (DAPP’s) for any digital media platform on top of DACC. DACC foundation will also set aside a special fund, aka, community development fund via DACC labs, to incubate developer community to create innovative Dapps on DACC platform. 

DACC will revolutionize the digital media economy by innovative technology, distributed global community and special token model and reward system, which finally empower real creators in digital media industry.

Problem

Personal Data Theft 
As the digital trend grows, data becomes more valuable. Centralized content platforms and media companies recognize this, and for years they have built their business models around obtaining as much data as possible on any and all users. While this has served these companies (and their profits) well, this has also made these companies into targets for hackers. System breaches and personal data theft has become increasingly common among today’s centralized corporates.

Network Data Abusement 
Especially in social media industry, the unclear permission of different network data cause a lot of problems too. The users have limited control of their own network data, the platform leverage these data heavily, and the content creators or organizers have limited access to utilize these network data too. This cause unbalanced economic model and unclear conflict between the participants in digital media industry. 

IP Piracy 
One of the most challenging issues when dealing with digital content is how to detect and ensure the original source of any data or IP. Lack of copyright protection affects not only the reputation and earnings of the content industry, but also disincentives the creation of new content.

Monopolization of Monetization
The digital media industry has seen tremendous growth with the advancement of digital technology and platforms. Digital media is reaching more people in more formats and in more channels than ever before. However, while content creators and consumers have benefitted from broader exposure and access, the main beneficiaries of the digital audio trend have been the centralized platforms that control and distribute content. These centralized platforms typically have business models where content rights aggregators (i.e. music labels) take 55% of revenues, content distributors (i.e. platforms like Spotify, Youtube, etc.) take 40% or more of revenues, and content creators are left with less than 5% of total revenues generated.

Solution

DACC’s IAM based platform will put data permissions and access management back into the hands of right participants in the digital media industry. DACC’s public chain will feature IAM at the infrastructure level,utilize IAM with data storage, and embed IAM into block creation. By treating the access to content, user, network data as a transaction, DACC’s platform allows for greater user sovereignty and control over their own creative content and their public social profile, reputation, and network data. When users control access to their data, users can determine how their data is monetized.

As long as centralized companies and data platforms exist there will continue to be data breaches. DACC solves this issue by integrating IAM elements throughout its decentralized infrastructure. Within each transaction, within each block, and within the file and storage system, DACC uses IAM to protect data and allow for data access control at a granular level. Users directly control who has permission to access their personal data, network data or content IP. Data access permissions are treated as transactions in DACC and immutably stored on DACC’s public chain. Data access is also treated as a transaction that is also immutably stored on DACC’s public chain so that any access by any user can always be traced and verified. 

DACC will utilize machine learning methods in data processing and community governance committee to identify IP, user data and network data. Whether any uploaded content data is determined as genuinely original will depend if the uploaded content is the only copy and if there is any dispute involving the content. DAPPs on DACC come with templates that allow for systems with special DACC nodes and arbitrators to verify and determine if copyright abuse has occured.

Features

DACC users will have full control and protections with respect to:

Content Creation
Copyright information is time-stamped into DACC blockchain. Algorithms are used to detect copyright theft.

Content Access
IAM permission maps let users decide who gets to access and monetize their data/content/IP.

Content Storage
Decentralized storage with partitions and permission maps to prevent piracy and data theft.
