Video hosting site Vimeo is set to launch Copyright Match, a system designed to prevent copyright infringement on the popular website.
When a video is uploaded to Vimeo, Copyright Match “fingerprints” an audio sample to see if it matches certain third-party copyrighted material, including songs, movies and television shows.
If a match is found users have the option to replace the video file, to delete the video, to swap the audio with a track from the Vimeo Music Store, or to appeal the match. Appeals can include notifying Vimeo that the material is being used with permission, that the use is “fair use” or that the system has made a mistake.
Vimeo has partnered with Audible Magic, a provider of content identification services.
According to the company’s official website, they have more than 26 million registered members, with more than 170 million unique visitors each month.
