DAZN Groupthe world’s leading sports streaming service, and Videocitesa cutting-edge technology company specializing in automated social media content detection solutions, announce a strategic partnership to step up fight against intellectual property (IP) theft and illegal social media streams of live sports content.

The partnership reflects our shared efforts to fight online piracy and promote legitimate sports live streaming services, and is part of DAZN’s broader campaign to protect intellectual property.

The ease and speed with which videos can be shared on social media has led to a proliferation of illegal streams of live sports content in recent years. The effective solution implemented by Videocites uses video recognition algorithms based on artificial intelligence, allowing you to quickly identify unauthorized flows among the vast amounts of user-generated content on social media platforms, even when the video has been manipulated or distorted by pirates to bypass defense mechanisms. By taking advantage of this real-time technology, Videocites will enable DAZN to remove 98% of thousands of illegal streams detected on social media in minuteswith unprecedented efficiency and thus protecting the intellectual property of right holders.

«By quickly removing pirate streams from social media platforms, we disrupt the vision by helping to demotivate consumers to access them in the future by encouraging them to seek out a legitimate service.”he declares Sandeep Tiku, Chief Technology Officer of DAZN Group. “Ultimately, this will deter intellectual property theft and maintain a fair and sustainable digital environment, safeguarding the interests of broadcasters, rights owners and athletes. The potential benefit is substantial».
