Adobe’s Creative Cloud “cloud” service scans for copyrighted material..

Quote from Blog:
"
If you’re a professional post-production outfit and want to use Adobe’s service to share material you’ve been working on with somebody else in the same team or even the client – that material is going to contain copyrighted material (if not your own, but licensed material – temporary soundtracks, etc.)

Adobe have not made any mention of the technology behind the system that they’re going to be using to identify infringing material, nor have they attempted to explain how it will work, how one appeals if it detects an infringement, or anything. Which is bloody stupid. As a professional, I’d be highly insulted by Adobe’s behaviour.

Youtube have a system that gives us a warning if a sound track we use on a video we upload is copyrighted. The Adobe thing might be similar. Pretty annoying and over the top IMHO.

They've gotta keep themselves safe from being shutdown like megaupload.

Yeah, and it doesnt work. I've got plenty of warning because 2 second sounds sound simular to a sound someone else used etc...

Like some wind that was recorded by myself, it sounded like the wind in someone's music and i received a warning for that.

Annoying indeed. Especially when you have to take the time and explain to youtube why there is no copyright infrigment and they take their sweet time to get at it...

Then they should really have avoided the Cloud altogether.

Another reason to hate Adobe's whole cloud thing - Not that I needed another reason.

It's not really confirmed, because that's actually the original source of the story. The OP is just an opinion piece which links to this source.

Also, the only thing confirmed at this stage is that a CC does not allow the sharing of certain file formats (mp4 files, music and fonts as examples) and that users were wrongly being shown the copyright error when they tried, rather than the correct 'format not supported' error. The fact the copyright error exists in the code might be noteworthy but its currently a long leap to the thread headline.

That's correct - my blog post is merely an opinion piece based on what I had seen in the official Adobe forums - and besides which, my post was written way back in 2012 - Adobe may have substantially fixed things by now (I gave up my Creative Cloud subscription after the first year - during that time the sync facility failed to show its face and other features that were announced during the launch took forever to roll out).

I left VFX to work for a hosting company that specialises in cloud storage. If Adobe does (or at least did) attempt to figure out whether something was copyrighted or not, then the service is all but useless. Why should the hosting company decide what can and cannot be shared? For the services that I help operate, we need a court order to get us to remove anything that has been deemed to have broken the law.

A good (cloud) hosting should never pre-judge its customers.

I agree. And it won't be long before Adobe joins the NSA-compatible company (Google, Microsoft, etc).
