MySpace Automates Copyright Takedown Process

EFF IN THE NEWS

MySpace announced Friday that it has rolled out a new technology to fight copyright infringement on the site. The new copyright protection system, aptly titled "Take Down Stay Down," uses technology from Audible Magic to ensure that content which has already been pulled from MySpace profiles is not re-posted...

Because the system lacks a human oversight, the Electronic Frontier Foundation worries that some perfectly legal content may end up blocked as well.

Corynne McSherry, an Electronic Frontier Foundation attorney, tells CNet, "with every form of digital rights management that we've ever seen, it always gets hacked eventually, so I think it's likely that eventually this too will be hacked."
