WatchDog serves real-life and digital artists, NFT projects, brands and marketplaces alike. Just see which package suits you best.
WatchDog relies on artificial intelligence algorithms to analyze each NFT that exists on the blockchain and compare it to your work based on provided criteria. Our service provides you with 3 options to show your work and check IP infringements. These include:
When the service detects potential IP infringement you will receive found results via a chosen channel that is convenient for you to review. You’ll need to review the provided details and decide if your IP rights were violated. Then, as an IP owner, you can generate a report right on our platform with all the details needed to submit takedown requests to marketplaces. With the Premium plan, you can also set up notifications the service will send you or your community to stay alert of potential fakes in real time.
Our service covers all existing and new NFTs that are listed on Ethereum (Layer 1). Solana and Ethereum Layer 2 support are coming soon.
The entire process is fairly simple. All you need to do is to connect your wallet and select the plan that suits your needs (or you can start with a free trial). Then you will need to show your work, project, or other forms of IP that you want to protect. After that, the service will send found results for you to decide if you want to generate a report on IP infringement and submit a take down request on the marketplace.
The WatchDog service supports three key scenarios to protect your work.
The number of pieces of work that you can protect with our service varies depending on the chosen package
DMCA is a Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which is a part of the US Copyright Law. DMCA defines the standards for removing content that violates intellectual property rights from the internet.
WatchDog uses DMCA logic but you should be aware that each country might have its own regulation for IPR violations and takedown processes for legal entities operating on the internet.
On our platform, you will be able to generate a report with all needed details based on DMCA requirements and practice. You can then submit it to an entity listing content that violates your Intellectual Property Rights. Please note that our service is not responsible for any decisions of third parties based on your submitted report.
No. If a website does not clearly state they follow DMCA you can still process a DMCA Takedown Notice to remove your stolen content.
In terms of intellectual property rights, Web3 relies on the same principles and procedures as Web2. In the end, it falls into the judicial system. The only difference is that Web3 is promising to code the IPR into the protocols and tokens using cryptography.
As we are not there yet, a lot of bad actors are using the Web3 ecosystem for fraudulent activities exploiting content, ideas, projects, and art of many creators. That's why we want to help creators, artists, and businesses to have a tool to protect their work, IPR, and communities in Web3.
You don't transfer any IPR to us. Your work is your IP. Our goal is to act as an intermediary where you can search for the IP infringement of your works in Web3. Through our service, you will be able to decide if your rights are violated. We will help you deal with IP violations by creating a DMCA report which contains all needed information (e.g. links to specific listings) to request a takedown. But it is you who will submit the report as IP owner.
In the future, we will introduce the feature allowing to automatically submit reports for takedowns. For this to work, you will assign us as IPR representatives but not as owners in any sense.
There are no specific requirements at all. WatchDog can be accessed from any laptop, mobile device, and browser you use.
For the Enterprise Suite — you will work with the Account Manager to set up everything for you, including recurring reports for your stakeholders.
