Open Content Certification Protocol (OCCP)

ISCC opens up the challenge of multiple registrations of the same piece of content by multiple parties. How is trust established when anyone can claim they wrote the Beatles back-catologue?

OCCP is a method to register certification entities. These aren't necessarily the same entity as the content author, or owner - but they are permissioned with registering metadata around a specific ISCC code; for instance a record label, a production company, a photography club or website.

OCCP doesn't confer any information on an ISCC other than it was registerd by a certified entity, which at a minimum is a legal entity, as recognised with a Legal Entity Identifier ([[LEI]]), which can be generated for a fee.
