DailyMotion implements INA’s technology on copyright detection

Dailymotion said that it is implementing INA’s “Signature” technology across all localized and local language Dailymotion sites. Dailymotion’s use of video filtering technology follows several other copyrighted material protection initiatives throughout the site, including a hashing system, blocking videos that have already been removed from the site and use of an audio fingerprinting solution. In addition, Dailymotion is an original signatory to the UGC Copyright Principles.

INA´s innovative image-based technology is based on a signature, or digital fingerprint, which constitutes a genetic code representing a sequence of images. Content that has been protected by a producer or a broadcaster using this technology will be automatically detected and will either be rejected or managed according to agreements before it is placed online.
