Piracy is the biggest problem for content creators on the Internet and especially for video publishers. Today, the Internet is filled with many pirated videos of movies, songs and much more. Over the past year, videos shared on Facebook have grown significantly. Facebook is trying to takedown video piracy to help content creators from this menace.
For content creators, Facebook provides an audience of nearly 1.5 billion and they can cultivate relationships with their fans on the platform. As the social media giant is ramping up its video efforts, it is trying to make the rights management of content publishers its first priority.
“We’ve heard from some of our content partners that third parties too frequently misuse their content on Facebook. It’s not fair to those who work hard to create amazing videos. We want creators to get credit for the videos that they own.”
How Facebook will stop video piracy?
Facebook is trying to takedown video piracy and has established a foundation in place by which videos uploaded to its platform will run through the Audible Magic system. This system uses audio fingerprinting technology to detect and prevent pirated or unauthorized videos from being uploaded to Facebook.
Facebook claims that its reporting tools will let the content owners report if someone has uploaded their video without permission and it will promptly remove those videos. The company also claims that its IP policies will make sure that people who continuously post content without permission will be held responsible for their actions.
Facebook is trying to takedown video piracy and it is just the beginning. The company said its long-term goal is to provide a complete video management system that will benefit the video publishers. Facebook concluded: “This will take time, but we’re working on it, and we’re committed.”
