Traditional Piracy Implication

In scenarios where a consumer’s wallet key is compromised, thus potentially allowing unauthorized access to the content, the issuing entity retains the capability to revoke the relevant SBT. This mechanism enhances security and mitigates risks associated with lost or compromised wallet keys.

Considering the ease of replicating digital content, traditional concerns of piracy are not a primary focus of this protocol. Piracy predominantly impacts users at lower consumption levels, who are not the central demographic of the publishing industry [7]. Instead, this protocol is devoted to facilitating decentralized distribution of content works, leaving piracy to be addressed by real-world legal frameworks. A key premise underpinning this approach is that enhancing the availability of legitimate distribution channels inherently strengthens the fight against piracy. One contributing factor to the consumption of pirated content is the lack of accessible, legitimate content access opportunities; addressing this gap can significantly mitigate piracy.
