New technique called the “DNA test” would enable rights owners to accurately identify pirated movie even if its scenes were altered, or colors changed. It will work even if the movie is a CAM version.
One of the main problems pro-copyright outfits have faced in the fight against unauthorized file-sharing is properly identifying copyrighted files that have been altered in order to avoid detection by standard automated means.
Now researchers at the Department of Electrical Engineering of Tel Aviv University have created a system for overcoming such obstacle by treating each video like individual creature, with its own DNA. Dr Alex Bronstein, Dr Michael Bronstein and Professor Ron Kimmel developed a fingerprint for each file. This fingerprint is easy to be traced online even if the movie’s scenes are altered, the video’s colors changed, and even if the movie is a CAM copy.
The developers believe that it’s not just members of the animal and plant kingdom that have a genetic code. Basing on the assumption that a DNA test can help identify and catch criminals, the creators thought that such code might also be applicable to video files. Therefore, even if the code is copied or changed, they would be able to catch it. The developers admitted that they drew inspiration for the idea from the kind of DNA sequencing instruments already used in bioinformatics labs.
The way the test works is quite understandable: the system uses an invisible sequence and series of grids applied over the video file, which turn the footage into a series of digits. Rights owners are able to later use the instrument for scanning websites hosting pirated material for any signs of mutations of the original movie file.
In fact, it is a video genetic code matching, which detects aberrations in pirated files in the very same way that biologists detect mutations in human DNA in order to determine family ancestry. The creators of the new tool affirm that the system is reliable even with commercials added, border changes, and scenes edited out. Meanwhile, the researchers already pointed at the first prospective target of the tool: they are sure that a website holding the most potential for the new idea is YouTube, because its own automated process cannot detect movie which been edited.

|Yikes it never ends lets hope that some genious hacker/software geek can shut this DNA test down fast and screw the MPAA etc . . .|
|This is old news. RAR the file and problem solved. Wow, took the community a long time to defeat this!|
|dslbandit u r a genious|
|thanks for the read knew nothing about it,menahunie ta for that as well oh and well said lol !!!!!|

|ROFLMFAO again...... we will always be one step ahead. Never straight always a head :) agreed someone must be smoking Camel dung LOL can anyone imagine being paid to do lame work like this. Get an honourable job...|
|WoW,so by the time they pay groups to come up with this technology and use it to recoup the money that they are reportedly losing due to big ole' nasty p2p I wonder how much more "ahead"they think they will come out financaly?In reality they are just going to hurt themselves in the long run I think because for people like me that can't afford to go to the cinema everytime a film comes out that looks even slightly interesting what I do is download the film and then,if it's real good I will go see it in the cinema but if it's one that's good but not worth paying for a babysitter and then paying an additional 20+ dollars to go to a cinema I will usually wait for it to come out on dvd and just buy it because I would much rather have a full dvd with the pic quality and features than just an encoded video.Now if I can't download and "preview"a film before it comes out to purchase I sure as hell am not going to throw my money away making a "blind purchase"by trusting some fat,over-payed,critic's opinion or because a film made good numbers at the box office,neither one of those means a film is good by any means.Serious film fanatics will always purchase a dvd for their collection if they enjoy the movie.There has been all kinds of films that have looked and sounded good that I have been able to download and after viewing them thought"Jesus,If I'd spent money on that I would have been so pissed."LoL|

|OK people what should you say to this ? welcome to the 21. century where 20. century software makes you look like a price idiot. rar the file into small bits by by DNA. |
if the entertainment industries could finally get to grips with the fact you will never stop p2p because everything you do is nothing more than throwing pebbles into the ocean hoping to build a dam.
how do we define stupidity ? isn't it doing the same over and over again but hoping for a different result.
P2P is unstoppable because a few hired hands stand against millions and thousands of these are very creative to come up with ways to shove it up the proverbially yours.
lets look why for instance downloads are good.
how many times have we seen a trailer and ads that had nothing to do with the movie ore even its character?
little fookers for instance not a bad movie but would i have gone to see it in the movies i would be pissed. would i spend money to buy the DVD yeah when hell freezes over i possibly could. still it was box office number one. downloads didn't hurt it there very much.
how can you increase profits by 200% but complain you are loosing money? are the politicians really that stupid ore so corrupt ? decide for yourself why they keep listening to these prophets of doom.

|We can identify pirated movies and give 80 yr old men erections (but they have dementia & don't know where to do with it!) but we can't cure cancer, AIDS, and any other number of deadly diseases & people starve to death daily....what's wrong with this picture?? Thanks you guys like the previous posters who stick it to the fat rich guys who keep getting richer off poor peoples backs! Keep up the great work P2P ppl!!! :-) Love to ya!|

|So what's RAR going to do? I download the fist part, unRAR it, check it and see it's a copyrighted movie. So it doesn't matter what you do with the movie, if they find you have it, its still a copyrighted movie, so RARing a file doesn't do anything but pack a copyrighted movie.|

|What's scary is the thought they might make it so that they can identify who owned the copy that was uploaded. Archiving it won't save you in that case...|

|I agree totally with Mena... but this is actually pretty funny... we've all been saying for a awhile that the largest source of pirated items are listed on Google, MSN, AOL... and such... you can transfer within these chat rooms and such... some people believe that P2P is not as safe as MegaUploads.. but the source still exists on that site... What I think is funny, is that who ARE they gonna catch? Its like the Preacher who gets on TV and devotes semon after sermon about Gay sex and is caught having Gay sex....|
They start using that in highly public places... people THEY DON"T WANT CAUGHT is gonna get caught then their little plans are suffer (like Obama's daughters or something like that)
|Jeeez, sounds like the work is being done by the same people that did the proto type development of Ronnie Raygun's Starwars program back in the 80's, LOLOLOL that was a bust as well.....6 trillion taxpayers dollars later!!!!|

|files files files man you guys don't have any imagination. you can start THERE????|

|Yeah you guys are thinking about this wrong. They've got the audio DNA thing out already and the actual PS3, DVD player, or whatever you're playing the file on "decodes" this DNA. So they catch you when you're watching it. SO if you watch it on PCs then you're probably safer than the schlub like me that watches it on his PS3.||
