White Paper
Vaultitude by IPCORP Ltd.

It's a natural progression.

Developed in close cooperation with leading authorities and stakeholders Vaultitude uses decentralized Blockchain technology to provide the fastest, easiest, safest and cheapest way to overcome the complexities and costs experienced by millions of innovators while obtaining and defending intellectual property.

By storing research, inventions, art and trade secrets, non-disclosure agreements and sale contracts on an incorruptible and unchangeable digital ledger, Vaultitude provides proof for legal proceedings and will be used by international patent and trademark offices.

Meeting all legal requirements.

Due to the inherent security of the software platform and its formal requirements for the upload of intellectual property, which follow standards and international classification guidelines set forth by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), Vaultitude publications fulfil all criteria of evidence of publication. Thus they can be used as definitive proof in various legal proceedings, in court and will be the basis of prior art search done by patent offices around the world.

Vaultitude not only documents when IP is published but also provides proof of access by a third party. Intellectual property published in Vaultitude’s Blockchain database will be searchable by examiners, patent offices, inventors, researchers, librarians, attorneys, and R&D and university personnel using a powerful semantic search and analysis engine designed to meet court standards of proof. Vaultitude will also offer technical interfaces to give examiners of patent and trademark offices and attorneys the ability to use their own meta-search systems.

Designed for all types of IP and users.

Vaultitude’s ambitious goal is to become an indispensable tool for innovators, artists, inventors, scientists and companies around the world and a new standard for IP management and protection. It is unparalleled in its flexibility and suitability for a wide range of intellectual property categories, as well as for its offering of peer review and research features. Depending on the type of intellectual property, the user will likely use different core features of the platform.

It all starts with storing the IP in your secure vault, which gives the software its name. Then users will be able to quickly establish proof of their authorship, decide to make a defensive publication, share confidential information with partners, transfer their IP rights in a sale or licensing deal or get in touch with a IP lawyer to file a new patent of trademark.

Multiple steps ahead.

Vaultitude is not just a unique proposition in its scope - its architecture is made out of several autonomous parts to fulfil the needs for safe, confidential storage and sharing as well as immutable publication of IP.

Vaultitude will securely store intellectual property in a decentralized method by using the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) and a Blockchain. While for the moment smart contracts based on Ethereum will be used, the architecture of the Vaultitude database is designed in a way that allows for the potential future migration to any other suitable Blockchain. This option will allow for flexibility and ensures that transactions costs will remain low. IPFS provides the best solution for distributed data storage together with a hash-based content address, which serves as a reference to the uploaded file. This reference or address will be stored in our smart contract on the Ethereum Blockchain. To retrieve the latest data, the address will be fetched from the Blockchain and IPFS will be queried for the associated file.

Versatility has a new name.
Take a look at Vaultitude's benefits.

Securely store your IP

Vaultitude offers a digital vault in which all types of IP can be securely stored. Corporate accounts are ideal for teams working together with different user rights and a log documenting all actions of the users. Optimal protection against data corruption, fire or theft.

 

Clear proof of copyright

Gives secure proof of first authorship accepted in legal proceedings, trials or patent applications and reduces the risk of infringement by deterrence. Quickly resolves disputes, improves the speed of removal of infringing content and thus avoids costs.

 

Superior defense mechanism

Faster and safer than publication in scientific journals, which requires third parties to become privy to the invention before actual publishing. Safer than server-based services as the data will be on the Blockchain. Documents publication and actual access. Ensures freedom of use, prevents others from filing a patent.

 

Safe sharing of information

Vaultitude supports the easy sharing of confidential information by sending out a simple link to a third party, that gets access to the data only after signing a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) which is also saved to the blockchain. This proves that access happened only after the acceptance of the legal terms and conditions.

 

A versatile marketplace

Our software allows users to assign multiple owners to each IP. Each IP can then be sold or licensed and the proceeds from that are automatically distributed among the owners according to their share of the rights. All transactions and the associated contracts are documented on the Blockchain.

 

Protect existing patents

Publishing incremental changes to existing patent protected technology is ideal for defending patent portfolios. By making new concepts publicly available, third parties are prevented from filing patents for improved products and the original patents retain their value.

 

Finance your ideas

In countries in which a grace period after publication of a new invention exists, the author retains his right to file a patent. The platform can thus be an e ective tool in pre-seed financing by helping inventors to raise the funds for filing a patent and/or commercializing it - thanks to better protection and higher visibility of a published IP.

 

Build a network & peer review

Built for optimising the daily work of scientific communities and within a corporate environment, the platform helps connect and collaborate with colleagues and external partners through network and messaging features and peer review capabilities, which allow giving feedback on published IP.

 

Find expert help

Inventors and researchers are usually leading experts in their respective field of technology. However, the drafting and filing of patent and trademark applications requires the help of experienced IP professionals. Vaultitude helps user to find such experts and allows for the secure transfer of confidential information.

 

It doesn't have to be complicated.

Our free demo lets you experience how easy it will be for Vaultitude users to protect their innovations. Describe your personal idea for an ICO and get proof of your authorship by uploading this information to the Blockchain and IPFS.

The full version of Vaultitude is currently in development and will be released in 2018. Vaultitude will not require client software. It is completely web based with only a standard browser and access to the internet as technical requirements. The user interface will be easy to understand and allow instant access to all features of Vaultitude.
