Facebook building new video matching system to crack down on video piracy

In a move which underscores that Facebook has efforts underway to crack down on video piracy, the company has revealed in a Thursday blog post that it is making attempts to fix its poor management of controlling video piracy on its site.

Facebook's move to crack down on video piracy comes at a time when videos can be found all other the social networking site; thereby resulting the problem of piracy, because of which the work of plenty of video publishers gets distributed on Facebook without their consent.

According to the details shared in the blog post with regard to Facebook's crackdown on video piracy, the social network is building a new video matching technology which is initially making available to "subset" of video publishers. The new video matching system will be launched by Facebook in beta for some select partners. However, the company plans to expand the availability of the technology when it becomes more effective.

Facebook presently uses the Audible Magic content tracking system, based on audio fingerprinting technology, for identification of uploaded videos which should not be allowed on the social network.

Though Facebook will continue to use the same system, it will improve it in collaboration with Audible Magic, so as to "enhance the way that system works with Facebook, including improving the intake of content intended to be blocked from our platform."
