Abstract

This chapter explores the possibility for copyright offices to harness blockchain technology to improve their operation and to advance the future development of the copyright system at both the domestic and international levels. It begins by identifying the benefits provided by blockchain technology. It further discusses the challenges posed by greater deployment of this technology in copyright offices. The chapter then identifies the different policy or technological choices confronting these offices. It concludes by providing suggestions on how to advance development and discussion of this emerging technology.
