MySpace Filters Songs

LOS ANGELES -- MySpace.com, the worlds leading lifestyle portal, today announced it has licensed technology from Gracenote, a leader in global digital entertainment technology, that will allow MySpace to block unauthorized copyrighted music audio recordings from being posted on its site. Utilizing Gracenotes MusicID audio fingerprinting technology and Global Media Database, MySpace will review all music audio recordings uploaded by community members to their profiles. The technology enables MySpace to identify copyrighted music audio recordings in the Global Media Database for designated rights holders, allowing MySpace to block the uploading of such works. MySpace is staunchly committed to protecting artists whether those artists are on major labels or are independent acts, said Chris DeWolfe, CEO and co-founder of MySpace.
