IMZ ACADEMY SESSION 2022: “Digital content management in a decentralised + democratised online world“

8 April 2022, online
In the course of Karajan Music Tech Conference “NFTs, Web3, DAOs“

Decentralisation and democratisation are shaping our business of tomorrow. Blockchain technology and Web 3.0 (aka Web3) aim to empower internet users to claim real ownership of the content and data they have created and shared with others. But what ways are there to identify and protect digital assets such as music and video files in the online world?

Together with experts from the music and tech industries this IMZ Academy session reflected on current practices and standards and put those into comparison with a promising proposition made by the ISCC Foundation.




The Karajan Institute, founded in 2005, is aiming at managing the huge catalogue of Herbert von Karajans work with its complex meta data as well as presenting and supporting initiatives in the field of music technology.
