Copyright Tool Will Scan Web for Compliance
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Attributor Corp, a start-up founded by some respected Silicon Valley executives, is taking a novel approach to monitoring copyright compliance: combing the entire Web for unauthorized uses. The article reports that the Company "has begun testing a system to scan the billions of pages on the Web for clients' audio, video, images and text -- potentially making it easier for owners to request that Web sites take content down or provide payment for its use."
