|The network equipment company announced the creation of a system to disable live pirate streams. Cisco’s Streaming Piracy Prevention platform utilizes third-party forensic watermarking to cut off pirate streams in real-time – without any takedown notices or cooperation from third parties.
Today, torrents remain one of the major illegal file-sharing methods, but streaming becomes more and more popular among pirates. Video streaming is used by millions, due to its ease of use via regular web browsers, modified Kodi installations, and fully-fledged IPTV services, effectively representing a threat to legitimate streaming providers, in particular those offering live content like sporting events.
In most cases, infringing streaming services obtain content by capturing and restreaming feeds obtained from legitimate sources. Such streams can then be redistributed by thousands of other services that can be easily googled. Now Cisco may have found a solution to this problem. The company introduced its Streaming Piracy Prevention (SPP) platform able to take down illicit streams in real-time without need to send DMCA notices.
Cisco has partnered with Friend MTS (FMTS), a UK-based company specializing in content protection, which offers Distribution iD. The latter allows content providers to pinpoint which of their downstream distributors’ platforms leak content. It also offers Advanced Subscriber iDentification (ASiD) system able to identify legitimate subscribers engaged in re-transmitting content online. In other words, the system is able to track the pirate streams back to the source of the leak and shutdown it in real time.
