Abstract:

This project explores how the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) might leverage blockchain technology to add value to copyright registration at the national level. It describes early proofs of concepts—such as British Columbia business registry—and concludes with a potential course for the future of copyright registration.

Ce projet explore comment l’Office de la propriété intellectuelle du Canada (OPIC) pourrait tirer parti de la technologie de la blockchain pour ajouter de la valeur à l’enregistrement du droit d’auteur au niveau national. Il décrit les premières preuves de concepts – comme le registre des entreprises de la Colombie-Britannique – et se termine par un cours potentiel pour l’enregistrement futur du droit d’auteur.

Accountability in the Digital Asset Business

With decentralization as a key design tenet, distributed ledger technologies are difficult to govern with centralized models of organizational oversight. While cryptoassets, smart contracts, and blockchains create efficiencies and mitigate certain known business risks, they introduce a unique set of risks. This project outlines strategies for managing, measuring, and mitigating these risks. For enhancing controls, its authors map out an integrated control framework with standards, roles, and responsibilities. They also look at audit and assurance of Dapps, proof of solvency, and regulatory compliance. Finally, they present a new playbook with red flags for executives as they size up their blockchain opportunities. It is a must read for enterprise leadership.
