AVXChange’s Stance on Intellectual Property and Copyright Law

AVXChange’s Stance on Intellectual Property and Copyright Law

1) It is the intent of AVXChange to provide the best consumer experience possible. It is our belief that catering to consumer needs will vastly increase sales by offering something better than today’s fragmented overly controlled audio and video marketplace.

2) It is our intent to move current users of uncompensated file-sharing platforms to our platform which compensates content creators / Intellectual Property (IP) owners. No content will be shared without first compensating the IP owner, from initial share, to every single download (an open record), the tokens from transactions will be held in trust for the IP owner until they decide to collect.

3) We are building a Peer to Peer (P2P) file sharing platform with a transaction mechanism which incentivizes user purchases and participation. How our users use it, is up to them.  We maintain that we should not be held responsible for the actions of our platforms users.
Based on how current P2P networks are used, we fully expect certain jurisdictional copyright protected IP to be shared on the network. We will not be enforcing IP or Copyright laws that we are not compelled to by law. We are taking steps to ensure that our legal entity is free from aggressive copyright enforcement legislation and international treaties which require cross border enforcement as much as possible.

4) We will work to ensure that every file and the associated Intellectual property owner is accurately identified upon files being shared on our network. If a file can not be accurately identified, it will either not be allowed on the network, or the user sharing will have to make a claim as to what the file is and who owns it at the risk of punitive damages for misleading the network. We will work as much as possible to protect the identity of our users as to help shield them from unreasonable intrusions on their privacy.

5) Resistance is futile. Once our network is up, because running on DLT, the network will run in perpetuity, regardless of the property rights debates which inevitably will arise.

6) If IP owners wish to continue to pursue those they see as infringing on their rights, they should continue to focus their enforcement efforts on networks which do not seek to compensate them.

7) We will not be profiting off the exchange of files, taking only 1% of transaction costs to attempt and pay for our administrative costs, which we are quite sure will not be enough. We are initially scheduling 60% of every transaction go to the IP owner, which we believe is an industry leading percentage.

8) Our prices will be based on the relative market price of the comparable offering.

9) We look forward to discussions and debates regarding copyright, IP Law, and Digital Rights Management (DRM). We believe that by best serving the end consumer, meeting their needs, and incentivizing their monetary participation in the eXchange of Audio and Video entertainment, outdated draconian legislation regarding IP and copyright will become antiquated, and the wasted money and efforts on enforcement no longer necessary.

10) We believe with time, content creators and IP owners will see us as the friend and ally we believe we are to them. We believe that together we will all be able to build a more fair and equitable world for entertainment media distribution.

Epic Troll Roll: BTT TRX fan Tried to Terrorize AVX Community

Epic Troll Roll: BTT TRX fan Tried to Terrorize AVX Community

Dear AVXChange community, P2P file-sharing community, and all other interested parties:

This article is to publish an interaction that recently occurred in our AVXChange Telegram group. We understand there will be a spirited debate surrounding what we are doing, and there is already a spirited debate regarding P2P file-sharing in general. We look forward to this debate and believe we have much to contribute towards elevating the conversation and finding middle ground. However, this following interaction was laden with threats and one-sided and often irrelevant arguments. We will not tolerate any behavior remotely similar to this in the future and have left this interaction on the group and are publishing it here as an explanation for why we will not engage in this debate for some time, especially within our group. For one thing, we are building a file-sharing platform, that has yet to have any actual public users or share a single file. We will proactively list our points in a subsequent article to address this issue of Intellectual Property (IP) rights. This troll engagement is encouraging, however, to understand how threatened some entities are by what we propose. We leave it to the sound discretion of the people to decide who makes a stronger argument.

This article is also to let all future trolls with skewed perspectives know we believe their perspectives to be wrong or at least extremely biased. To us, the AVXChange community, it is obvious their arguments are flawed and we will not engage them after this point. Our time is better spent building the AVXChange software and working with community members who understand the value of our project and wish to give feedback meant to better the project. To be fair, we do not actually know this troll’s motives or if they are actually a “butt hurt” TRX BTT fan, though we find it hard to believe that we would have already irked other larger concerned parties such as major studios etc., especially since we have not even publicly distributed one file over our platform yet. This person fails to answer questions about or criticize BitTorrent which is currently, by far, the largest IP rights infringing platform on the planet. It seems logical to conclude this person is a fan of BTT or TRX, looking to intimidate our community. We welcome converts from Tron and BTT. However, if your intent is to mischaracterize our approach and make blatantly one-sided arguments in an attempt to discredit us, or intimidate our team members with threatening DMs, which was done by this troll, you will be banned. If on the other hand, you have questions not answered in this troll face-off, or in our future post regarding the IP issues, please do engage in a peaceful and respectful way. If you are a former TRX BTT fan and you have already seen the light, realizing that AVXChange will lead the way in this effort to democratize P2P file-sharing and reward IP owners, then we celebrate your arrival and we applaud your vision!

I’ve contacted Sony Entertainement, they apparently said this is a scam and is currently being investigated :/

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 07:26]

Hello Mr Alexandre Beau,

Following your inquiry on https://www.sony.net/copyright/.

Thank you for informing us about AVXChange website, needless to say that all the content available has never been authorized by Sony Entertainment Network.
An action is being taken to investigate if the company is lawful, Republic of Philippines governement has been informed.

Please do not invest in any projects claiming to have any rights to distribute content from Sony Entertainment Network without consulting our website for Authorized distributors:

I’m staying at your disposal if you have any more questions.

Best regards,
Angela Lanze
Copyright & DMCA department


TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 07:26]
Can you please inform us about that :/

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 07:27]
Are they going to put in jail the owners and employees?

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 07:28]
I’m waiting the reply from Disney too to know their point of view

Karl, [06.05.19 08:47]
Troll alert, for those who haven’t figured it out.

Karl, [06.05.19 08:48]
[In reply to TweetNaCl]
You are most likely a Tron enthusiast, Butt hurt because Justin Sun is running away with your money.

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 08:48]
What? Why do you insult me?

Karl, [06.05.19 08:49]
Regarding Sony and Disney, of course they haven’t authorized us to share any of their files. We aren’t asking permission.

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 08:49]
[In reply to Karl]
yes that’s what sony said

Karl, [06.05.19 08:50]
Perhaps your energy and effort would be better spent gong after P2P networks who have no intent to ever pay IP owners such as BItTorrent

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 08:50]
Please clarify on how you will avoid lawsuits

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 08:50]
Sony doesn’t look happy at all with your concept

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 08:50]
How do you plan on fighting in court?

Karl, [06.05.19 08:51]
[In reply to TweetNaCl]
We don’t expect them to be at first.

Karl, [06.05.19 08:52]
Large content creators have always been afraid of digital media distribution and have lagged behind in trends because of that fear, often crippling their offerings in the process.(Please see DRM.)

Karl, [06.05.19 08:52]
They don’t know what’s good for them.

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 08:52]
But legally speaking

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 08:52]
How you gonna manage it

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 08:53]
And protect investors

Karl, [06.05.19 08:53]
So to answer your question, which is the good question you should have politely asked in the first place, How do we expect to avoid lawsuits?

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 08:54]
[In reply to Karl]
You should respect more potential investors, it’s completely normal that I do a due dilligence check before investing in your product.

Karl, [06.05.19 08:54]
1) we don’t have investors,we have a community of users. Our tokens are not interest in the company, but rather the utility by which our PLATFORM runs on.

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 08:54]
Like it’s bad that I’ve contacted sony?

Karl, [06.05.19 08:55]
I appreciate your due diligence, but please in the future, let’s be less alarmist, and more polite. Please give me time to respond to you.

Karl, [06.05.19 08:57]
2) this is a platform, users can share what they want as long as it doesn’t violate gross agreed on community standards regarding obscenity. Right now, we draw the line at child porn and snuff films, this list will likely increase, but will be guided by the community.

Karl, [06.05.19 08:58]
We will not police copyright issues.

Karl, [06.05.19 09:00]
3) INTENT, our intent is noble. We intend to move users from current uncompensated P2P networks such as BitTorrent over to our compensated network where no work will be shared without first compensating the IP owner, from initial share, to every single transaction, the tokens will be held in trust for the IP owner until they decide to collect.

Karl, [06.05.19 09:01]
4) IP owners should continue to focus their enforcement efforts on networks which don’t compensate them.

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 09:01]
[In reply to Karl]
But what I don’t understand is that the IP owners didn’t agree with that, didn’t define any prices, you’ll just give them what you want basically?

Karl, [06.05.19 09:02]
5) Our network once up, because running on DLT will run in perpetuity, regardless of the legal debates which inevitably will arise.

Karl, [06.05.19 09:02]
6) We see these legal debates as good press and an opportunity to spread the word about AVXChange.

Karl, [06.05.19 09:03]
7) The company will be registered in a jurisdiction which does not enforce WIPO treaties before even one file is shared.

Karl, [06.05.19 09:04]
[In reply to TweetNaCl]
It seems at this point that your concerns may be legitimate, so please accept my apology for being so harsh with you initially. I’ll again ask that in the future we have this discussion in a more polite, less alarmist way.

Karl, [06.05.19 09:05]
[In reply to TweetNaCl]
Let me ask you this. Have you heard of BitTorrent?

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 09:05]
[In reply to Karl]
I understand…
Regarding your employees, is the Philippines going to protect them? if it becomes a true “copyright heaven” software

Karl, [06.05.19 09:07]
[In reply to TweetNaCl]
In the Philippines, we are being developed by a third party. Most of our developers are not employees, but contractors who are hired by the third party working on a file sharing platform (AVXChange). Nothing illegal about developing a file sharing platform for another company.

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 09:08]
[In reply to Karl]
But developpers have already been held accountable before (see Megaupload, Etherdelta…)

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 09:08]
Developpers (not owners) have been in court and even jailed temporarily

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 09:08]
Are they “over-compensated” to handle this risk?

Karl, [06.05.19 09:10]
[In reply to TweetNaCl]
Please forgive me as I’m tiring of this conversation. You have not answered my question regarding BitTorrent, nor are you making reasonable comparisons. Megaupload didn’t ever compensate IP owners. Please engage in a conversation with me, by answering my questions, or I will go back to seeing this as nothing more than a troll effort.

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 09:11]
[In reply to Karl]
i’m really feeling insulted now, you talk to your clients that way? (Like i’m a “troll” ?)

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 09:12]
I do not have to answer your questions, but you do have to answer questions from Investors, especially if it’s toward Grey areas like Copyright infringment

Karl, [06.05.19 09:12]
[In reply to TweetNaCl]
Let’s be clear, I’ve been overly polite to you, who are not a client nor an investor, and at this point appearing more and more like a Troll.

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 09:13]
[In reply to Karl]
Alright then, have a nice day… I don’t know what’s your problem, i’ve seen your product on a Medium page, inquire because basically you are going to steal IP owners big time, trying to understand what will be your defense and you keep insulting me.


Karl, [06.05.19 09:13]
[In reply to TweetNaCl]
I will do all parties the favor by leaving this thread on this group so that trolls will think twice before going down your road as well as to answer those legitimate questions regarding copyright infringement. In my head, I visualize your virtual troll head on a spike as you enter our castle. Now I ask you to again please answer my question, have you heard of BitTorrent?

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 09:14]
[In reply to Karl]
i’ve asked you technical questions about incentivizing seeders, so I do believe I know what is BitTorrent, and quite well on a technical level too

TweetNaCl, [06.05.19 09:14]
Thank you, have a nice day

Karl, [06.05.19 09:14]
Ok, well good riddance, I will continue with the logical conclusion to my question.

Karl, [06.05.19 09:15]
[In reply to TweetNaCl]
BOOM there we have it, I was right! A threatened BitTorrent fan, heavily invested in BTT and TRX frightened of the better tech and approach.

Karl, [06.05.19 09:15]
You sir are now banned

saykhul sahl salim, [06.05.19 09:17]
When airdrop distribution?

Karl, [06.05.19 09:18]
[In reply to TweetNaCl]
You aren’t an investor, nor will you ever be. Nothing more than a troll.

Karl, [06.05.19 09:18]
[In reply to saykhul sahl salim]
2-3 weeks from now.

saykhul sahl salim, [06.05.19 09:25]
[In reply to Karl]

Karl, [06.05.19 09:25]
[In reply to Karl]
If you are familiar with BitTorrent then you would know that their technology is being used to download copyrighted IP on a massive and rampant level. Not once have they compensated IP owners. Bram Cohen, the inventor and former owner of BitTorrent, nor any of his employees, partners, or investors were ever sanctioned criminally or civilly, in fact their tech and company whose platform is used grossly infringing IP rights was purchased for approximately 130 million US by Tron, to inflate user numbers and attempt to do what we are doing. I rest our case.

Karl, [06.05.19 09:31]
Our pricing will be market price. We will release our pricing structure when we release the public Beta.

Top 10 Reasons why you Should buy Presale AVX Tokens now!

Top 10 Reasons why you Should buy Presale AVX Tokens now!

1. Buying now allows you to get in on a tremendous project at an amazing value point.

  1. The closest competitor (whose proposed payment/reward system is still unclear) looks to not reward content creators, BitTorrent Token (BTT), has a current market cap of $141 million USD.
  2. AVX Presale tokens are priced 40% below our proposed IEO price.
  3. The proposed IEO is priced at roughly 35% of what the still vague BTT is currently valued at.
  4. We planned our IEO pricing to help ensure that tokens hit the market and go up in value rather than stagnate or decline.

2. The way the AVXChange network will function as far as payments and rewards is already detailed, easy to understand, and fair for all parties involved.

3. Buying now let’s you support a project which fills critical needs in the market. Needs such as providing a single source to buy all of your media, easy cross-border global transactions, rewarding content creators, and allowing purchasers to earn from sharing the files they purchase. AVXChange will reduce the number of uncompensated downloads and allow small independent artists to easily sell their work alongside major artists and studios.

4. AVXChange is situated to become a major competitor in the multi-trillion dollar global digital entertainment download industry by using industry disrupting digital ledger technology (DLT), blockchain, and cryptocurrency technology.

5. AVX tokens will be used on the network to buy media, therefore having embedded intrinsic value.

6. AVXChange has planned and is building design and functionality superior to any other existing or currently publicly planned platforms.

7.Once built and deployed, the network will sustain itself, be distributed, and capable of running in perpetuity by being developed using DLT, blockchain, and cryptocurrency.

8. Limited opportunity to participate:

  • Only 5% of total tokens are offered during presale and the offer could end at any moment as they may be purchased in large chunks by single entities.
  • The project is heavily financed by founders and private capital, the IEO is not necessary for product launch and the already planned generous proposed terms of IEO may change as market conditions may dictate.

9. AVXChange has a dedicated team, whose sole mission is to bring this project to fruition. We envision an equitable system where consumer needs are put first and rewards all parties for participating.

  • Shortly after we release beta for public use and prior to official network launch, we will open our code to be security tested by the community. In the meantime you can expect regular detailed reports.

10. Community members may participate in Presale, and show support of AVX with as little as 1ETH.

How To Buy AVX Tokens

How To Buy AVX Tokens

AVXChange released a complete video tutorial on how to buy AVX Tokens on our Smart Contract for our ongoing Phase 2 of Token Presale.
Anyone wishing to purchase AVX tokens during the presale can NOW PURCHASE AVX tokens for the minimum purchase of only 1 ETH.

AVXChange offers 5%, 1,000,000,000 AVX (ERC20), of its total 20,000,000,000 AVX Token (AVX) supply to private parties or the general public via presale.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to buy AVX Tokens.


AVXChange launched the first phase of its token presale on March 25th, 2019, 08:00 (UTC+8) which ended on April 19th, 2019. During the first phase, each contributor was able to purchase a minimum of 36 ETH (4,800,000 AVX Tokens) worth of AVX Tokens at 150,000 ETH market cap.

For the second phase, the remaining 856,000,000 AVX Tokens are being sold at 0.00001125 ETH and the minimum purchase is reduced to 1 ETH (88,888.88888889 AVX Tokens). The total AVX Tokens have an increased market cap of 225,000 ETH, still 40% lower than planned ICO price.

The total funds raised from these token sales will be used to advance and finalize the development of the AVXChange platform, to push through its marketing campaign, and for legal expenses.

AVXChange: Leading the Distributed Entertainment Revolution

AVXChange: Leading the Distributed Entertainment Revolution


AVXChange is the next evolutionary step in the current peer-to-peer (P2P) industry and is undeniably superior to traditional methods of file distribution, leading the way to the development of the first ever P2P file sharing platform that compensates intellectual property (IP) owners and incentivizes users by allowing them to earn for their role in distributing the product to market.

AVXChange, or Audio Video eXchange in its simplest form is a retail platform for audio and video entertainment. More specifically, AVXChange is a custom, incentive based, P2P file sharing platform designed for the exchange of audio and video media over the internet. AVXChange could further be described as a FinTech business established on the principles of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) set to revolutionize the distribution of entertainment over the internet.

The Need

The company’s goal is to address a need in the market to convert uncompensated P2P media file downloads into compensated media downloads by incentivizing P2P file sharing participants to purchase their files. Uncompensated downloads are when IP owners receive no compensation for their work being downloaded which are present on many existing P2P file sharing platforms.
AVXChange resolves the need for artists to have a fair, transparent market for their digital distribution, unlike current subscription models which only give artists pennies on the dollar for their works.
Through AVXChange, file sharing participants are incentivized to compensate IP owners by allowing those sharing the files to profit from their involvement in the distribution network, economically compensating them for the usage of their bandwidth, processing, and storage resources.


AVXChange is the evolution of P2P file sharing. Unlike other existing P2P file sharing applications, the AVXChange platform will be a distributed system using blockchain to eliminate centralized data points, thus increasing security and transparency as all nodes on the network will reach consensus on data and events.

The AVXChange network will be a custom built platform which includes the distributed ledger/database, cryptocurrency, a layered node network, a client application, and backend administrative application/interface. The ledger and cryptocurrency will be secured using cryptographic algorithms, blockchain type hashing, and custom consensus methods.

It will be powered by its own token running on its own proprietary network and blockchain. The AVXChange Token (AVX) will be the currency of the commerce on the network and may be exchanged for other cryptocurrencies at the given exchange rate at the time. AVX tokens will be earned by sharing media files as well as by acting as a node which supports the network infrastructure.
As the rate of technological advancement is rapidly increasing, along with the increasing popularity and advanced applications of blockchain and cryptocurrency among different industries, AVXChange has found a way to incorporate these revolutionary technologies into the current P2P file sharing with the goal of bringing the current P2P industry to the next level.
Unlike typical ICOs, AVXChange had already started its platform development last year and self-funded the entire operations before its token sale with the goal of offering its potential investors with a working product during token sale instead of just selling pure concept. AVXChange is set to launch their beta release this month and had started their ongoing token pre-sale last March 25, 2019.

A Preview of AVXIP: A Distributed P2P Network with Elements of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency

A Preview of AVXIP: A Distributed P2P Network with Elements of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency

With the increasing popularity and advanced applications of blockchain and cryptocurrency among different industries, AVXIP has responded with a new twist in the entertainment industry.


In 2008, AVXIP, a FinTech business conceptualized a proprietary protocol for scalable mass distribution of large data files. AVXIP stands for Audio Video eXchange over Internet Protocol. It is designed for the exchange of audio and video entertainment that is set to revolutionize the distribution of proprietary data over the internet. Being eager to move forward, the company immediately began to develop their business plan and start to flesh out the process.


The initial implementation of AVXIP’s protocol was ambitious and a bit ahead of its time technically as there were challenges from security and centralized data points as well as difficulties with payment options. Only since 2014 with the emergence of blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies were there technological solutions to the challenges faced.


Last year, as AVXIP pursue its vision, the company contracted with Resonant Marketing Group, a Blockchain Consultant Company to develop their proprietary P2P file exchange network. It is said to be a distributed peer-to-peer (P2P) network with elements of blockchain and cryptocurrency, creating a whole new platform in the entertainment industry and changing the way we do file sharing.


Following the contract between AVXIP and Resonant Marketing Group, AVXIP licenses their protocol to AVXChange just this year. The agreement made between the two parties makes AVXChange as the first and sole licensee at the moment and will enjoy an exclusive right to the technology for three years. Details about the said technology are not forthcoming.
