It is reported at physorg.com by ANICK JESDANUN, AP Internet Writer that myspace is starting to filter out copyrighted materials. Physorg reports as follows:

MySpace is licensing technology from Audible Magic Corp., which late last year obtained rights to a system for scanning video clips and looking for signature vectors – such as a unique digital fingerprint – to compare with vectors stored in a database. Video can be blocked from appearing on MySpace when there is a match.

The popular online hangout MySpace said Monday it will experiment with a video-filtering system designed to block clips containing copyright materials

Thanks to Myspace on their dedication to stop user on using copyrighted materials. But how efficient could they do this? Or maybe because of the recent legal problems that youtube is having regarding copyrighted materials that is showing in their hub.

According to Chris DeWolfe, MySpace’s co-founder and chief executive as written also in Anick’s report,

“MySpace is dedicated to ensuring that content owners, whether large or small, can both promote and protect their content in our community,For MySpace, video filtering is about protecting artists and the work they create.”

This statement will make you fill that myspace will do their best to protect your rights.
