An Artist’s New Best Friend? Smart Contracts and Beyond

Digital innovation and technological advancement have opened up a multitude of new creative possibilities and could provide a better solution for rather practical issues such as rights administration within the Creative Industries. Smart contracts promise immediate and secure access to vital information on an artist and a work of art including terms of usage and subsequently ownership splits, rights holder’s contact information all the way to creative influences of the artist and equipment used. Literally everything could potentially be stored through technology such as Blockchain.

But aside from a streamlined administration, what implications could smart contracts or an idea like Imogen Heap’s Creative Passport have on artists and the creative process in general ?
