The concept that a person aims to control my own identity without the intervention of a controlling entity is called self-sovereign identity (SSI). The SSI is an antithesis to the phenomenon that certain companies and organizations, called digital platformers, collect data centrally.This paper expands the concept of SSI and describes the possibilities and problems when applying it to self-content management using the concept of Self-Content Management (SCM). In particular, I discuss the possibility of self-sovereign management of digital content, and discuss DRM using blockchain technology as a means.This paper is assumed that SSI can be applied to content created by myself, but by properly managing content using blockchain technology, it is possible to complete licenses and levy fees. I also clarified that it could be a substitute for the resale right.As a result, SCM promoted the problem of “orphans’ works” and facilitated the processing of rights, and revealed that it could contribute to the further development of culture. However, I also address that there are two issues. One is the lack of institutional trust, rather than the technical credibility of the blockchain. The second is consistency with the Attorney law of Japan.
