WIPO PROOF is an easy-to-use online service that helps you safeguard digital assets by rapidly generating tamper-proof evidence that a digital file existed at a specific point in time, and that it has not been altered since that time. WIPO PROOF complements WIPO’s existing intellectual property (IP) services with this new tool to strategically manage all your files, data and other intellectual assets.

Whether you are an artist, a composer, a designer, a scientist or business executive, your work produces hundreds of important files and data that contain valuable information essential to your future success. Your files may contain creative works, research results, data sets for training AI algorithms, or even business records. They should all be treated as intellectual assets and safeguarded from misuse or theft.

In just a few clicks, WIPO PROOF helps you safeguard digital files of any size, in any format, whether they are numeric, image, executable, text or audio-visual. Safeguarding your files at every stage of development from concept to commercialization, gives you the peace of mind that you have securely documented your work, whether or not it eventually becomes a formal IP right.

In celebration of today’s (May 27, 2020) launch, Francis Gurry, WIPO Director General, has the pleasure of offering you three complimentary WIPO PROOF tokens (please see below for details).

To use your complimentary tokens worth CHF 60, please access the WIPO PROOF site and “Get Started” in the process of safeguarding a digital file. Next, in the “Payment” step, please choose “Pay with Bundle” and select “Introductory Bundle,” which has been credited with the three (3) complimentary tokens. Any unused tokens will expire on June 15, 2020, at midnight, Geneva, Switzerland time.
