MySpace aims to stop video reposting

In addition to other copyright protection features already implemented, MySpace has launched Take Down Stay Down, which prevents users from reposting videos that have been removed at the request of the copyright owner. The social networking Web site, owned by media conglomerate News Corporation, already offers an audio filtering application which screens audio files to prevent people from uploading bootlegged music; a video filtering application, which screens video files to prevent illegal video uploads; and a Content Take Down tool, which allows copyright owners to request unauthorized content be taken down. MySpace has previously declared it can take on YouTube with its recently launched video uploading service.
