Discovery

  • Most searches currently rely on guessing hashtags
  • Only small sample of captured content turns up

Verification

  • One error could ruin a reputation. Like the saying goes “fool me once shame on you…”
  • Current verification tactics are manual, slow and prone to error

  • Recent rulings have increased potential for copyright liability when embedding content
