Abstract: The paper builds a bridge between the various interest groups and promotes a functioning amalgam between authorities, specialists, planners, cultural workers and citizens. The future use of systematic instruments could support the development of long-term, socially sustainable urban projects that attract cultural tourism, promote a better life and activate civic participation. The toolbox approach highlights the issue of Intellectual Property (IP) protection. A directory that shows who owns what provides idea/trademark owners with a potential reference point to find out about their rights and the extent to which these rights are being used. This could be particularly helpful in those jurisdictions where proof of first use or genuine use is required. Block chain technology can also play an important role in the context of unregistered IP rights, as it can provide evidence of their conception, use, qualification requirements, and the country of origin.
Keywords: connecting knowledge protection of ideas; liminal city Cadasters; block chain.
