his goes way beyond art. We’d like to change the Internet. Today, artists, designers and creative workers can share easily on the Internet, but keeping it as “theirs” with proper attribution or getting fairly compensated has proven difficult. At the same time, people that want to support creators haven’t been presented with a simple way of doing so.
How do you “own” something when bits can be copied freely?
ascribe was established to put creators back at the center. The Internet was built with a crucial flaw and while a redesign is wildly impractical, we can retrofit it by adding an overlay. We’re building the ownership layer of the Internet.
Digital content has its own rules. It can be perfectly and easily copied, stored for free and transmitted at the speed of light. With ascribe you’re offered the closest approximation to ownership possible on the Internet. We do this by giving you the tools to lock in authorship, set the intent and gain visibility into where your work spreads.
Our mission: to give everyone the power to own and control their intellectual property in the digital age.
