The landscape of piracy is changing

Piracy has always been a concern for content owners such as movie studios and broadcasters, but now in addition to illegal downloading, they have to monitor known pirate sites for unauthorized streams as well as increasing amounts of popular user-generated content (UGC). Monitoring billions of infringing files requires automated technology that can both detect and accurately verify original content.
