New Scanner For Pirated Multimedia
A new software scanner is available to copyright holders that can detect audio and video signatures, and consequently detect infringing web content. It's called ACID, and the details are here. Would a product such as this work in favor of Google in the Viacom/YouTube litigation? Viacom is complaining that the burden should be on YouTube to police copyrighted material even though the statutory scheme nominally places the burden on the copyright holder. Would a tool such as this make it easier for the holder to identify clips? Would that undermine Viacom's arguments? Stay tuned.
