Title: BitShares Music
Post by: bitbro on March 03, 2014, 12:47:09 am
Just watched the intro video to the upcoming DACs.  Thank you, Daniel and team.

Question about Bitshares Music; What's to stop Person B from from copying Person A's song, producing a new chain for the same song and then selling shares in the pirated song?

There is no notion of "pirated song". Songs are intended to be copied.
What's being "pirated" is the exchange, so buy up shares of your song on all exchanges that are significant when you lauch.

"Exhange" is an imperfect analogy. How about "songspace"

What I mean is, any song can be ripped and retitled -- will artists really benefit?

Ah, right, you could just change the song a tiny bit and it'll have a different fingerprint. I think "ninjaing" is a more appropriate term than "pirating" for the new paradigm.

Maybe you could gamify finding duplicate songs and punish the people who ninja songs?

I think what he's saying is what is to stop me from claiming to be lady gaga and selling share's in "my" new song?

Well Bitshares Music will be the back end of websites running on top of it.
The pandora/8track/groveshark-ish website that allows you to create a profile and upload your songs will have a few mecanisms in place to garantee that a song (and all the songshares) was uploaded by the correct artist / band / record label.
You have the market for starters. People will not invest in a song that could just get ignored once the real celine dion tweets that Mario69 is not the one singing in my_heart_will_go_on.mp3
So the market/investors will want to make sure they are putting their cash in the place that will produce the most ROI.
Second is the Flag/report button. This could make the jukebox ignore the song and skip it, until the issue is resolved.
Third you could have a "verified account / profile". So when the song has a green check next to it, it's because the uploader proved that he or she is the content creator (or the record company that has the rights to Beach Boys - Surfing USA)

Does this make sense?

Im really excited that about the potential for a new revenue model for Music. But can someone explain to me, if I hold shares in a particular song by using Bitshares Music, where is the link between that song being played and my shares receiving dividends? I watched Dan's snapshot video where he touched on all the other DACs, but I didnt quite understand that key point.

Songspace is a much better name than Bitshares music.

For a service provider, yes. BitShares Music is a good brand for Dan's underlying technology, but appending "Bit" and "coin" to one's retail brand is starting to feel as groovy ".com".

With regard to the attack suggested above, I met with some Haitian-Americans here in Miami a month or so ago, who told me that some artists in Haiti have huge fan bases, but that they do not have enough money to pay for a doctor's visit. While the temptation to ninja a Madonna song might be high, one would have to be a real unpleasant-person to rip off some guy in a tent city trying to scratch together a living.

Also, there are ways to use reputation and word of mouth to establish which of two submitters of the same song is likely to be the actual creator.  In this system, there is no advantage to choosing the other instead of the artist.  Identifying the artist's submission and investing in it will be more profitable than either "ninja-ing" someone's songs, or investing in ninja'd songs.

Every sale generated by every website using the Bitshares Music Blockchain is where your dividends come from.
You will NOT receive dividends from itunes sales or CD sales or concert ticket sales.
BUT!
Bitshares Music aims to undercut itunes since it cuts out a gazilion middlemen... have you heard of micro-payments by any chance? (:

Speaking from an implication perspective (not a coder): I don't think it would be too hard to upload of "proof of song [origin]" into the blockchain to prove you're the original artist.  Maybe something as simple as a fingerprint of the audio profile in a pdf would suffice?

Post by: toast on March 17, 2014, 11:08:43 pm
Or just a hash of the song file. But checking that the song you're listening to requires you to check against the actual audio of all the previous songs to make sure it didn't get ninja-d. Of course you could incentivize finding ninjas and then you would have someone just throw some AI at it and problem solved.

Okay - BTS Me and BTS DNS  just got their own sub forums.  Where's the love for BTS Music?  This is a very attractive DAC let's give it some love.

If it's not under development, it shouldn't be under "Development" harr harr

I don't think anyone is actually writing code for it. If anything Lotto should have a subforum.

Actually, BitShares Music is backed by one of the most awe inspiring teams we have seen.  It will soon be the model that all the other teams will be trying to match.  They definitely deserve a sub-forum.

Here is an interesting article about a band taking BTC donations for a Torrent song. The band in this article would be much better served by the Bitshares Music DAC. Of coourse, they don't know that yet.

That hiphop group is getting a lot of attention but are they really good?

The one thing I can take from this, integrate Bitshares music into Bittorrent.

Bittorrent integration could be key for marketing and simple as hell. 15 minutes of coding could help Bitshares music.

Sorry guys you need to send much more donations before they produce anything. And even than you can't expect much. Maybe big party in Las Vegas but I'am not so sure that any of you donors will be invited.
Sorry for trolling but one month with no new snapshot of even one DAC is too much. Early birds are sucking hard.  Soon 1 BTC will be enough for all 5000 daily produced AngelShares.

Man, are they just throwing anything and everything onto Mastercoin? It's like starting a city and letting people build wherever and however they want. How long before their piggyback blockchain space fills up with crud?

Regarding the worry about "song pirating" - can there be public and private key encryption that would enable a user/listener to access the song with a public key only when he or she has either bought a share or paid a subscription for the service?

Also, will there be ways to give band's "top fans" incentives like discounted merch, early buy ticket access, etc.?

I was listening to this (from 38:10 to 41:00).  Adam B. Levine is talking about his ideas relating to music using blockchain tech.
Time-stamping uploads of songs, using tokens to rate songs. Creating various charts and setting it up so the platform distributes tokens to most successful songs etc.
The consumer doesn't provide money, but acts as a curator to determine popular or highly rated songs.

Is there anything here which could be adopted by Bitshares music which hasn't been considered already?

...Just a thought:

What's to prevent someone from charging a ransom for incriminating recordings?

I imagine it would only be a matter of time until such a use case found its way to reality.

Is that something that the DAC is prepared to facilitate?

If someone were to integrate their scheme with Maidsafe's 'immutable files' function, it could be a cash cow for rogue papparatzi, whistleblowers, & organized crime.

How could such actions be prevented programmaticly?
