Press freedom is a right that every rule of law, together with the media (newspapers, radios, televisions, internet providers) should guarantee to citizens and their associations, to ensure the existence of freedom of speech and press free, with a series of mainly extended rights. (Wikipedia)
WHAT WREP IS.
WREP is A WEB REPORTER & CREATOR REGISTER that uses Blockchain Technology to protect its members’ online content for free. The Wrep is aimed at PROSUMERS.
NOTE: It is not a register of journalists since in italy the journalist is a profession regulated by the national register. The Wrep therefore warns anyone not on the national register to use the word “journalist” to define or introduce themselves.
The WREP Registry was established in Germany in 2018 as a declination of the European Blockchain Partnership (EBP) agreement, supporting the provision of cross-border digital services with the highest standards of security and privacy
The WREP Registry enables members to affix a legal deposit to digital publishing products via blockchain technology, effectively protecting the copyright of those who publish information content online
Given the technical characteristics of blockchain, with Decree Law 135/2018 this is recognized as one of the technologies based on distributed registries and as such can produce the legal effects recognized to electronic time validation.
Blockchain makes it possible to protect intellectual property rights due to its inherent characteristics of transparency, security, immodifiability, and information traceability of data and transactions.
Therefore, protection through blockchain is equivalent to a notarial act.
The Wrep blockchain allows the creation of NFTs that can be traded for free in the NFT.WREP.EU marketplace.
The WREP Registry protects:
Texts of any kind
Images (illustrations, photographs, infographics)

It is the responsibility of the member to register and certify own works, as WREP is not required to verify the intellectual property and authenticity of the registered content.
