AntChain Introduces Video Copy Detection Solution to Protect Creators from Copyright Infringement

AntChain, the “flagship” tech 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 localize infringements in video segments that are difficult to detect by the human eye.”

As explained in an update shared with CI, the solution can also “accurately detect copied segment pairs between videos frame-by-frame within a few seconds.”

In 2020, AntChain unveiled its blockchain or DLT-powered 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.”

Hui XU, Vice President of Digital Technologies at Ant Group, stated:

“The new solution has an approximately 99% chance of accurately detecting copied video segments with different transformations, including video clipping and pattern (text/image) insertion, among others. Our new solution will make copyright protection technologies more accessible to content creators and IP owners.”

As noted in the update, 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.”

As covered, AntChain is the flagship technology brand of Ant Group. It is “dedicated to building the foundations of trust with innovative technologies including blockchain, internet of things, data analytics, and intelligent risk management.”

It aims to “develop mutually trusted, high-efficiency technical solutions for the industrial internet, and to support industry collaboration and value creation.”

AntChain was reportedly “ranked first in China’s blockchain-as-a-service market in 2020, according to market intelligence provider IDC.’
