In Spain, PONS IP, a company specializing in industrial and intellectual property, and Signeblock launched Safe Evidence, a digital platform designed to protect information requiring legal evidence using blockchain technology and electronic signature and certification services.. This was reported to Cointelegraph in Spanish through a statement.
As they noticed This initiative would make it possible to present a test that could be used in court as it complies with the rules governing identification and electronic transactions.
The declaration states: “Safe Evidence guarantees or certifies those developments that may represent an artistic work, a trade secret, an industrial design or a future patent, through a legaltech solution that also offers legal protection.”
They also stated: “Thanks to Qualif_ID technology, a fusion of digital identity in blockchain and electronic signature with full legal guarantee, the management and signature of files containing creations and developments is facilitated in an agile, simple and immediate way.”
How detailed Coverage is achieved through the combination of blockchain with the use of advanced signatures and qualified time stamps which, according to European regulations, have the presumption of correctness as to the date and time they indicate.
The declaration also detailed the operation: “The Safe Evidence platform works under cloud technology with three levels of protection: Sign Evidence, an extended signature with a qualified identity for each file type, which is based on blockchain technology; Stamp Evidence, which includes qualified time stamping and blockchain registration; and Full Evidence, which also includes the extended electronic signature”.
The idea is that the platform makes it easier to store files in cases where there is an interest in third parties protecting them, and that it can also be operated exclusively via a code system so that a code is generated during the transaction – by means of an algorithm – which is clearly assigned to the original file.
Nuria Marcos, General Director of PONS IP, commented:
“The use of blockchain technology has a strong impact on the industrial and intellectual property sectors. Blockchain technology will transform the way we manage and protect intangible assets. With Safe Evidence, we respond to one of the most sought-after challenges in the industry and enable us to create evidence with full legal guarantee and infinitely easier and more agile processing through our platform. ”
On the other hand, Marta Gutiérrez, CEO of SIGNEBLOCK said that Safe Evidence enables companies to address digital transformation processes and offer customers, employees and society a greater range of value-added services in a more agile, convenient and effective way in general “.
