Presentation Tokenart is the result of scientific and legal research. Directly inspired by the Creative Common project developed by the famous lawyer Lawrence Lessig, Tokenart brings a new standard to offer the creative world the possibilities allowed by the blockchain. It strikes a balance between the traditional “all rights reserved” framework resulting from copyright and the open framework of open source such as the Creative Commons promoting the free flow of creations. It helps artists protect and monetize their creations in the 177 states that are signatories to the Berne Convention. The Tokenart solution gives everyone, from individual creators to large companies and public institutions, simple and standardized means of representing the rights attached to a creation on NFT. Objective pursued We want to create a collaborative and global common allowing any creator to facilitate the transmission of his rights on the internet thanks to NFTs. For this we need: A community equipped with a token allowing to participate in the management of the legal and technical security of NFTs, the quality of creations, etc. Our community Our community will soon be provided with a Tokenart token called OKNA which will allow it to - Vote for future updates of the technical standard - Vote for future legal licenses - Be paid to validate identities and artists - Be paid to settle disputes in intellectual property law - Receive rewards related to Tokenart activity such as reputation tokens - Propose improvement to the vote of the community - Get income from TOKENART DAO activity What solution, for what problem? Today we are faced with four problems: -Earning a living as an artist and creator is a challenge. The art NFT market helps some artists who specialize in creating digital art. But it is not the majority. Serious art projects find it difficult to make a place for this as they are drowned in online scams. Many artists would also like to share their creations and not just the cryptographic hash of their digital files. - Current NFT standards do not allow creators to prove their authorship on their creations or to secure and monetize their copyright through their NFT. They also do not prevent acts of counterfeiting. This created division and friction within the creative universe ​ - The impossibility to identify and reward fervent contributors. We all knows that in shared free Library that we can find in cities, people who take books are not always people who let those books. This is exactly the same for Creative common regarding intellectually property asset. - Free licenses allow you to share rights without being able to monetize them Solution : We have developed a new secure and legal standard in over 177 countries around the world. This standard allows four things: Provides creators with a certificate of prior art on their creation so that no one other than themselves can claim authorship of their creation Allows creators to secure and monetize their copyright Identity and reward fervent contributor to Tokenart Ecosystem Provides the Tokenart community with a tool for surveillance and enforcement within the NFT market in the copyright sector. ​ How do we allow creators to secure and monetize their creations? The simple fact of tokenizing a creation through our standard offers the creator a legal proof of paternity of his work opposable in front of a court of justice. Our standard then allows the creator to choose which copyright he chooses to offer through his NFT. What are the copyrights that a creator can monetize? Tokenart is developing three types of NFT: 1. The certified standard NFT A creator can sell a standard digital NFT with the additional assurance for his buyers that he is the original author. This aims to avoid false NFTs. Moreover, this standard NFT License allow the buyer to use for personal purpose the artwork identified by the NFT. ​ 2. The intellectual property NFT A creator will be able to sell an intellectual property NFT with the assurance for his buyers that they will have the ownership of the intellectual rights thanks to the NFT. For example, a creator of an art NFT can therefore tokenize the commercial use of his Art inside of the NFT. By purchasing the NFT, the buyer will be able to sell T-shirts or paintings including the Art of the NFT 3. The physical NFT A creator will be able to sell a physical NFT with the assurance for its buyers that they will receive the physical object if the NFT is purchased. For example, an artist can therefore tokenize a physical painting and sell it on any crypto platform.

How it's made

This project use metamask to connect to the form and mint a NFT on Ethereum or Polygon. It use the PER.JS library to make the link between the front end and the ERC721 smartcontract. Our ERC721 smartcontract is homemade and allow a user to include License agreement explaining what a NFT owner can or cannot do with the Art included inside of the NFT. These NFT License are created by lawyers. It has three layers : 1st a human understandable layer 2nd a lawyer understandable layer 3rd a machine understandable layer which use tag and links. Our NFT have as well a funcitonalitiy different from other : Only the owner or admin smartcontract can transfer it. This line code is made in order to allow Tokenart DAO to judge potential Art infrigment and give back the NFT ownership to the right person. This DAO Smartcontract obey to a Momentum created by the DAO itself. It gives back sovereignity to DAO's owner for Art right of attribution.
