MySpace Introduces Video Content Filtering System

    Starting on February 12, the MySpace website has been experimenting with the implementation of a filter that will block video clips containing copyrighted material.

    The filter works on the basis of licensed Audible Magic technology, which compares the “signature vectors” (a kind of digital fingerprints) found in the clip with the vectors stored in the database and recognizes the clip as stolen or not based on the comparison, writes Daily Press .

    All this turmoil is conceived, as you might guess, to protect the interests of copyright holders, which MySpace representatives openly admit.
