NBC Patented Technology to Detect Pirates

NBC Patented Technology to Detect Pirates

A new technology able to detect high volume file-sharing swarms (including those through BitTorrent) has been recently patented by NBC Universal. The technology can detect popular pirated files and collect information that can be used for anti-piracy purposes, business intelligence, and to help Internet service providers relieve load on their networks.

Illegal file-sharing is one of the main threats for music labels and movie studios, even despite the growing availability of legal alternatives. The copyright owners have tried various anti-piracy tools over the past several years. However, piracy flourishes today with hundreds of millions of people sharing copyrighted content every month.

So, NBC Universal doesn’t give up and has just scored a new patent that may help. The patent is titled “Early Detection of High Volume Peer-To-Peer Swarms” and allows to detect and target cases of online piracy before it’s too late. Peer-to-peer networks are described in the patent as something that can be positive, but is often abused.

In the meantime, the high volume traffic generated by BitTorrent users is also a problem for ISPs, because pirates tend to strain the network. This is why NBC Universal suggests to monitor file-sharing swarms that exceed a threshold of a certain number of users. The invention is described as a system providing for early identification of high risk swarms in order to take anti-piracy efforts.

NBC Universal points out that the swarm data can be used in various ways: to provide real-time business intelligence or for business advantages. The anti-piracy measures can include takedown messages to broadband providers. This is nothing new in our days, but the controversial part is the suggestion to use swarm information to limit or block file-sharing traffic, which might help ISPs save costs.

According to industry watchers, Net Neutrality advocates won’t like this implementation, but in fact, the current FCC rules allow Internet service providers to block file-sharing traffic if it’s “unlawful”.

In any case, it’s doubtful that NBC Universal will use this patent in the near future: its parent company Comcast previously faced significant pushback when it throttled BitTorrent traffic.

Shouldn't this say 'File Sharing is one of the main threats to music labels and movie studios making obscene profits?' I mean, they've basically set themselves up as a profit machine, and now the 'file sharers' are threatening their way of life. Oh bother.

No avatarNSA Patented Technology to Detect Pirates... Hack WIFI, remotely access peoples computers, Put cameras in and around peoples houses. Break into peoples houses and laugh on the way out.

Sounds like NBC just wants data retention like in Aussie. That's not patented technology, that's just censorship.

No avatarIf you download you take longer then streaming, if it stalls you do not care. If you are streaming it needs to be in real time. Surely streaming would make more demands on the isp network.

AWSOM3 avatarIllegal file-sharing is one of the main threats for music labels and movie studios. Funny I thought there crappy music, horrible move, no talent actor(ress), shady companies, rouge regulations, and just plain bad movie and music crews were. I cold go on about how they do things but i actually have thing to do. These DMCA act like pirates have NEVER bought any thing. Apps on itues cost 99 cents, 1.99 on a Microsoft phone or tablet i heard they cost less at the google play store. I buy thing i find useful not crap and no matter what i can not take crap back to the store. I can return useful items back tot he store. Not crap

No avatari like what @reargunner was saying..it seems sensible unless i consider that i seed torrents for a good while and most of them are ratioed over 1:1 ,the highest one i have currently in my app is 9:1, so essentially its not the downloading that weighs a network its the seeding..you download it once but if you are a good stewart of the network you let you seeds grow for others to recieve the same blessing you did..i dont ever look at my ratios or care where they stand..i leave things to seed based on my free space and the artistic quality of the content..sometimes i will leave horrible content up too..i limit my up speed to only 100 kbs so that might offset my weight on the ISP but the reason i limit it is to be respectful of other housemates and smart home devices utilizing my local network.. but i digress..
the real two cents i came here to add is that i wish a ISP would try to block my access to torrent..they gonna find out real quick when my business relationship with them becomes past tense and its on to the next one..the only ISPs in america blocking people access to anything is the ones that are allergic to profits..i only ever received one copyright notice from sony or paramount i cant recall, like 5 years ago but it was a second rate cable provider in my city and i havent used them ever since..i been using torrent for at least 7 or 8 years that i can recall..what is a copyright notice lmaoooo!!!
lolol congestion on the network..movies and music losing profits..
every large corporation in the world can cry me a river
