WIPO PROOF is a new digital business service that provides a date- and time-stamped digital fingerprint of any file, proving its existence at a specific point in time. This new service complements WIPO’s existing intellectual property (IP) systems. It is specifically designed for our increasingly digital world where innovation and creativity are enabled by technology, big data and global collaboration.
This digital paradigm generates vast amounts of valuable intellectual outputs in the form of digital files – from creative works to research results to data training sets for artificial intelligence algorithms – all of which can easily fall prey to misuse or misappropriation.
WIPO PROOF offers innovators and creators in virtually all industries a fast and effective way to safeguard digital files, at an affordable cost.
