Blockchain will be used as an evidence by the Chinese courts

The Internet court in Chinese Hangzhou ruled that evidence stored with the technology of blockchain can be used as evidence in court proceedings.

“The court considers that it must maintain an open and neutral position on the use of blockchain for the analysis of individual cases. We can not abandon it only because it is a complex technology. We also can not simplify the standard just because it is protected from unauthorized access, “the judge said in a commentary.

The case, during which this decision was made, concerns the claim of the media company Huatai Yimei against the technology company from Shenzhen, filed because of copyright infringement.

Huatai Yimei has registered images, website codes and other evidence through a platform for storing evidence based on the detainee of Baoquan.com. During the trial, representatives of the plaintiff showed on the screen images of web pages and text, which, in their opinion, were used illegally.

The main issue in this case was whether blockchain can be used to determine the authenticity of evidence, similar to the traditional notary service.

As a result, the judge ruled in favor of the plaintiff, ruling that the evidence stored on blockchain can be accepted by the court. This decision was one of the first official cases of using data verified in the block of data in court proceedings in China.

The Hangzhou Internet Court was formally established in August 2017 and is one of the first instances in China that handles cases and resolves issues of intellectual property related to the Internet exclusively online.

Earlier this year, Chinese President Xi Jinping publicly spoke about the technology of the distributed ledger for the first time in a positive way, recognizing its breakthrough potential. According to him, blockchain is an important part of the technological revolution of the 21st century, which China must implement in order to achieve success in the economy.
