Information on copyright infringing websites and infringed content is recorded on the blockchain and preserved as evidence. Evidence data can be stored semi-permanently by using a blockchain system, which is virtually impossible to tamper with, instead of a normal database system.

Evidence data of copyright infringement damage stored on the blockchain can be downloaded as an “infringement record certificate”. By presenting the certificate along with a warning of copyright infringement to an illegal site, it becomes a stronger restraint. 3. Preserving evidence with one coin (500 yen) on a pay-as-you-go system The number of cases of copyright infringement varies from time to time.

You can use it as much as you need according to your needs, such as limiting the number of times when the number of copyright infringements is particularly high, or narrowing down to illegal sites that need to be dealt with.

With C-Guardian for individual creators, in addition to manga and anime, it is now possible to preserve evidence of NFT infringement, which has been attracting attention in recent years.
