AntChain, the flagship technology brand of Ant Group, recently launched a new video copy detection solution to help make copyright protection technologies more efficient and accessible to content creators.
With the recently developed algorithms, AntChain’s new solution can precisely identify and localise infringements in video segments that are difficult to detect by the human eye. The solution can also accurately detect copied segment pairs between videos frame-by-frame within a few seconds.
In 2020, AntChain unveiled its blockchain-based digital copyright services platform, which enabled content creators to quickly authenticate and verify a variety of original works, including videos, audios and pictures. With the release of the video copy detection solution, the platform now provides creators additional capabilities to protect themselves from copyright infringements.
“The new solution has an approximately 99 percent chance of accurately detecting copied video segments with different transformations, including video clipping and pattern (text/image) insertion, among others,” said Hui XU, Vice President of Digital Technologies at Ant Group. “Our new solution will make copyright protection technologies more accessible to content creators and IP owners.”
Online copyright infringement remains a problem for creators worldwide. According to a study from the Global Innovation Policy Center, digital video piracy is responsible for least US$29.2 billion in lost revenue to the U.S. economy each year.
As of March 2022, the AntChain-powered digital copyright platform has supported more than one million content creators and helped protect over 80 million original works.
