Video Content Filtering

Posted on 5.13.2007
MySpace will be enhancing their copyright protection tools with a new system that will prevent users from reposting videos that are copyright-protected.  Based on content protection measures based on Audible Magic technology, when MySpace is informed that a user has posted unauthorized video content onto the site, MySpace will remove the video and then create a digital fingerprint of the video content and add it to the copyright filter based on the audio. If another user tries to post the removed content, the filtering system will recoginize the similarity and block it from appearing.
