Work type: Literary works
With the Internet being used more and more by writers, it can be difficult to protect your work and stop others from stealing it. That’s why it is important to get authorship confirmation in time. It will help you to assert your rights and protect your text against plagiarism.
You can protect texts of any kind. Literary works include books, anthologies, journal and newspaper articles, reports, conference papers, working papers, dissertations, letters, speeches, emails, novels, poetry, song lyrics, single pages of text, tables and compilations. The owner of the copyright of a literary work has the exclusive right to make and distribute copies, to publicly perform and to create derivative works. Copyright protection lasts for the life of the author plus seventy years after the author’s death.
Copyright appears in the moment the work is created. When you register your work, you create a public record of the authorship. So, everyone can see that you are the creator of your intellectual property.
UDIAR service allows users to protect their works by using timestamps and distributed blockchain systems. It means that you can assign a precise date and time to an electronic document which contains your work and confirm the date of its creation.
With UDIAR you get the proof of authorship, can sell or acquire work rights. Every UDIAR user has an opportunity to monetize protected works in the internal marketplace by providing licenses for use and distribution. You can provide free access to your works by Creative Commons license or sign commercial license and permit the licensee to use intellectual property in return for compensation. The rightholder sets terms and conditions for acquiring a license, including price and the period of validity. You can also alienate rights – transfer all rights to your work to another person.
It is possible to acquire work rights. All works that can be purchased are presented in the market section of the site.
