Facebook to Launch Tool to Tackle Video Piracy


Tacking Video Copy Right Issue!

Facebook has announced to launch a tool which would help users to tackle video theft on its website!

Facebook’s announcement to launch a tool that could measure to tackle video piracy on its website comes after the Company has to face great criticism on failing to stop video theft and piracy happening on facebook.com.

Just to remind you, this year in July, the social media giant had announced plans to share advertising revenue with content creators for the first time to give tough time to video streaming giant YouTube.com. However, the Company has to face criticism over its slow response to video piracy.

Brady Haran, who runs a collection of YouTube channels, told a private TV channel in his interview that Facebook is quite slow in responding over video theft. As Ogilvy, one of the advertising agency found that 73% of the most popular videos on Facebook had been ripped from other websites like video websites.

The story doesn’t ends at just criticism, even prominent video creators like Mr Green accused Company of being failed to protect video copy right issues. He even gave his own video example how and where it had been theft.

However, while announcing the new tool, Facebook looks very confident to tackle this issue, as the Company deems to grow its video business. The social media has also explained that the tool is far more batter than Youtube tackling with the same issue, as the tool gives content creators right to block certain content by an alert, where YouTube's content ID system blocks infringing videos automatically without having permission of copyright holders.

"Our matching tool will evaluate millions of video uploads quickly and accurately, and when matches are surfaced, publishers will be able to report them to us for removal" Said Facebook. The Company planned to develop a "comprehensive video management system" and was "committed" to tackling video piracy.

"It's a daily frustration to see wealthy companies exploit your work without permission," said Brady Haran, whose educational YouTube channels are followed by around two million people.
