MySpace's New Software to Stop Use of Pirated Music

Published: 2006-10-31
The popular online community portal MySpace is taking steps to block unauthorized copyrighted music from being posted to the site.

Yesterday, MySpace announced the use of Gracenote's MusicID audio fingerprinting technology and Global Media Database to monitor songs uploaded to member's sites.

"MySpace is staunchly committed to protecting artists' rights - whether those artists are on major labels or are independent acts," said MySpace CEO Chris DeWolfe. "This is another important step we're taking to ensure artists control the content they create."

The site has a policy against the use of copyrighted music and with the new software, MySpace will now be able to take action. Users who repeatedly violate the policy will have their accounts deleted.
