I just posted the article Copyright software pegs illegal uploads in seconds.

NEC has figured out a way to sniff out copyrighted online videos accurately, and in little time.

Our own Rights are being takin away on a regular basis and its not right-Where is the out rage.no smoking no sitting on the grass,no talking, no unions ,no health care.What the heck are we doing to our selfs.The lawyers are ruining this country to line their pockets.And nothing is stopping them. A law should be drawn to have a warning label with the type of programs which have been hidden on dvd and cds so we can buy which dvd or cd we prefer.Not tricking everyone with their rape of the public.

Once again, only legitimate customers will have problems. Yet another incentive for legitimate customers not to buy original.

Pirates won’t have this problem - they’ll find software/cracks to get around it :iagree;

Vote Pirate Party :iagree:

Here’s another thought -> charge less, make content convenient … keep the status quo & go out of business.
Choose either pair :wink:

Rootkits aren’t necessarily spyware.
Rootkits install themselves to do something underhanded, much like a virus.
However, they “hook” into the file system calls & hide the critical files from the operating system, preventing detection, and hence removal from anti-virus programs.

Sony’s rootkit software hid itself from the file system in order to hide the copy protection software.

Thanks Debro I understand but still they do it under handed without your say,it’s my computer they invade.

just screamin’ and cryin’ the Blues :cool::bow:

“no unions, no health care…”

Rights are based on individual liberties in the Constitution. These two items are NOT in the constitution and are collective rights, (i.e. socialism) not individual rights. The producers of the works be they artistic or professional have their right to profit from it. The only item I can agree with is that once you purchase it you should be able to use it on any device or medium you own as long as it is for your exclusive use and not passed on to others in place of their purchase.


#11

I agree and if someone passes a movie or cd to someone else for profit should be burnt but to invade your computer is like unlegal seach and seizer.I know artist have to make a living but there has to be a limit on how far to go.

Maybe not to those whom like to have rootkits stealth installed on their system and have it determine what rights you have on your computer - that isn’t for me. So I will pass on it. It in my mind is still spyware even if it doesn’t connect to Sony it still is detecting the media and blocking the legit user from access the media they bought.

There’s no legitimate reason for anyone to install a rootkit on someone elses computer.

The only time a rootkit may be applicable is if a companies IT department has some sort of security/encryption software that they want hidden. But at any rate,[B] installing rootkits is a poor policy, because other malignant software could use the installed rootkit to hide itself [/B]& remain undiscoverable forever.

Sony was using the rootkit to hide the copy protection software.

Issue 1: The copy protection software was preventing you from using the media you bought & paid for.
Issue 2: Sony installed a rootkit that hid files. This rootkit could be used by malignant software writers to hide viruses, spyware, keyloggers, spambots, zombies & other nasty things.

Of the 2 … no#2 is the most damaging one, and I’m surprised the DOJ didn’t take Sony to the cleaners for employing rootkits without user knowledge, and exposing every customer to potential identity theft & terrorism.

Rootkit a few zombies across the USA & you have yourself an undetectable botnet to carry out DOS attacks practically everywhere in the world.

Good onya Sony!

Here’s a new slogan …

Sony.
Supporting terrorism since 2006 :wink:

Okay, adding this to my “I Hate Sony Because…” list now.

Detection accuracy for copyrighted video is 96 percent with NEC’s method, and only one out of 20,000 detections is a false positive, NEC says.
Somehow these numbers do not match, then again who cares.

The technology will be part of MPEG-7 signatures
Aren’t they creating MPEG-6 at the moment though? Could take years.

[QUOTE=Mr. Belvedere;2517013]Somehow these numbers do not match, then again who cares. [/QUOTE]

False positive = Incorrectly detecting a video as copyrighted when it is not
Detection accuracy = Correctly detecting copyrighted video.

Not the same thing.


#17

No system of copyright detection is foolproof, despite the arrogant and delusional claims made by NEC.

Sounds more like spin than reall substance.

Wouldn’t it be great if they actually focused on making technology that benefits users instead of working against them ?
