Users can create, manage and register content-derived, decentralised identifiers on blockchain networks.

Rightsholders can declare metadata and rights management information and associate them with the identifiers and inseparably associate metadata, licensing terms, rights management information and other claims with the content.


Verifiers can identify digital media content and get access to trustworthy metadata and rights management information.

Content certificates allow to verify registrations, declarations, public keys and identities and the authenticity of original content recognise misinformation, disinformation and fake news.

Certification Authorities

Certification authorities can sign certificates for digital content that acknowledge registrations, declarations, public keys and identities.

They support cultural industries and creative individuals by creating trust in content and assertions, verify the identity of creative individuals and acknowledge that a specific assertion or claim to a digital asset can verifiably be associated with this entity.

    Platforms (OCSSP’s)

    Online platforms (OCSSP) can use the Licium API to generate ISCC – decentrally, on their premise!

    This way they can unambiguously identify digital content (UGC) without access to any metadata and verify the authenticity of the original content.

    To comply with EU regulation they can receive content ownership information and get access to trustworthy metadata and rights management information, clear the rights for digital assets and user generated content, and license content in an automated way.
