MySpace aims to stop reposting of videos.

MySpace, a networking Web site owned by media conglomerate News Corp.,
said Friday it launched copyright protection software for video

The feature, called Take Down Stay Down, prevents users from reposting
videos that have been removed at the request of the copyright owner.

MySpace has several other copyright protection features already
available, such as an audio filtering application which screens audio
files to prevent people from uploading bootlegged music; a video
filtering application, which screens video files to prevent illegal
video uploads; and a Content Take Down tool, which allows copyright
owners to request unauthorized content be taken down.
