Wacom has found a way to wrangle one controversial tech, blockchain, to dampen the impact of another, generative AI. Wacom Yuify is a service, in beta for Adobe, that enables digital artists and photographers to permanently record ownership of their work on the blockchain, to then control the legal use of those images through licensing.

Wacom Yuify is already available as a plugin for Photoshop (ironic given Adobe’s stance on content use), and a beta version will be released for Clip Paint Studio at the end of June, and the excellent Rebelle shortly. (Read our Rebelle 7 review for more on this app – it’s recommended.)
