Registering your copyright is the best way to prove ownership. When you click that shutter you own your copyright. StockBlock is not an alternative to it. But it is the second best to help win cases in court. With the help of Blockchain technology, content creators will be able to timestamp their artwork copyright and attribution. Whenever you upload your artwork on StockBlock, the information is recorded on blockchain. A fingerprint of your image along with your details is timestamped using smart contracts on ethereum blockchain.
