MySpace to implement copyright filtering

February 12, 2007

Yes, they’ve announced it before YouTube (come on GooTube, time to do something to please the copyright holders!), Myspace will be implementing audio filtering technology from Audible Magic to safeguard copyright on videos that are uploaded to the site.

The technology filters the audio tracks in videos searching for anything it can identify as a known copyright. How effective this will be is yet to be seen, but it’s a step in the right direction and will please traditional media companies and copyright owners.

So, pressure’s on for Google, they need to implement the long promised copyright filtering technology quickly or they may find deals being struck with MySpace instead of them!
