The US Copyright Office is hearing from over 10k voices about how AI should play by the copyright rules.

On one side, you've got creation pros like the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) calling a spade a spade and saying AI's taking a walk down the thievery lane. On the other, you've got the big tech fam – Meta (aka the Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram overlord) – saying the playbook is fair use. Where will the Copyright Office draw the line?

Short version: Tie a bow on it, they haven't yet.
Long version: They're in listening mode with eyes on the 21st-century heist that creators like PPA and filmmaker Justin Bateman are calling out.

Just when you thought the matrix couldn't get messier, right? Standby for Scene 2.

💰 Social Tokens: Creator Gold?

TechBullion takes us on a deep dive into social tokens—digital keys unlocking a treasure trove of creator goodies. Imagine if your favorite artist's autograph could get you backstage or a virtual high-five. That's the power of these tokens, intertwining ownership and community like a digital DNA strand.

Once, ads and subscriptions paid the bills, but social tokens flip the script. They offer a direct line from fans' wallets to creators' pockets, cutting out middlemen munching on fees like it's a buffet. And it's not just about buying in; it's about belonging. These tokens make you part of the story, with perks and privileges money alone can't buy.

Sounds like a utopia? Well, there's still some matrix to navigate. The market can sway like a trapeze artist, and regulators are eyeing this new game of digital hot potatoes.
But for creators looking to paint with a broader palette and fans hungry for an authentic experience, social tokens might just be the golden ticket.

How do you feel about creators and fans exchanging value through social tokens?
