Sony, known to have innovated many technologies throughout its history like the Sony Walkman or the latest innovation, PlayStation VR. The company intends to set its new sights on the distributed ledger technology so that it can manage and store digital data on the blockchain.

There are a multitude of possible implementations for Digital Rights Management (DRM) which blockchain can solve, however it does disrupt another market.

Current businesses use DRM in order to engage third-party vendors for digital rights lockers and other storage methods that use access to their digital entertainment. Sony states…

“These conventional solutions may not be very reliable and rely on one unique point of failure. If the rights locker provider or system goes out of business or otherwise fails, the user loses all the acquired content.”

Sony proclaims that their current system stores content rights in a license that is applicable to a single user. DRM powered by blockchain would negate the need for the third party service license provider and create many other possibilities for the user. This would in fact eliminate the third party service, and give Sony customers more control over their data.
