Once the legality of the asset is confirmed when the asset is recorded in the blockchain, it can be confirmed that these records will continue.
In fact, the impact of blockchain on the transfer of artistic works has already taken place in the music industry. Streaming services such as Spotify and Deezer require an extra layer of intermediaries to ensure that the artist’s copyright management process is properly implemented. The result is that art creators need to sign different contracts in each jurisdiction to protect their copyrights and pass on their work, often involving multiple layers of intermediaries.

It is also possible to reach a direct payment to the copyright owner. If all of these elements are in place, new market participants such as Musicinin and Revelator want to use the blockchain to skip common middlemen and streamline the digital rights management process, so that the music buyers can directly pay for the micropayments directly. Pay to the artist.
