Comply with Article 17 and manage user-generated content effectively

Article 17 impacts most video-sharing platforms and social networks out there. The time is running out, and businesses must implement automatic content recognition (ACR) software to comply.

Article 17 of the EU Copyright Directive

Article 17 of the EU Copyright Directive puts obligations on the platforms with user-generated content to implement technical measures, such as automated content identification software, to ensure that copyrighted content does not get uploaded without a license or approval of a rightsholder.

How to comply with Article 17

With the volume of user-generated content uploaded to video platforms, an automated content recognition solution is the key to complying with Article 17
  • Obtain authorization (licenses) when possible or collaborate with rightsholders to protect their content
  • Respond quickly to valid requests from copyright owners to disable or remove infringing content from a platform, and take measures to prevent it from being uploaded again
  • Implement technical measures, such as an automated content recognition service, to ensure the prevention of unauthorized uploads

What is an ACR

Automatic Content Recognition (ACR) is an advanced technology that uses algorithms to analyze and identify copyrighted material in digital content. It enables platforms to automatically detect copyrighted video content among user-uploaded content.

ContentCore, WebKyte’s ACR solution, empowers platforms to rapidly spot unauthorized copyrighted video content and prevent legal charges for breaching Article 17.
