Spotify has applied for a patent on a new technology that can detect plagiarism in music and inform authors about it. Thus, the authors of plagiarism will be able to protect themselves against lawsuits, points out Srsly.ru.
Users of the service will be able to check the uniqueness of tracks created by them even before their release. The neural network will show the unfortunate author a link to the composition, which the track composed by him/her looks alike.
Plagiarism is not always an intentional theft. It happens that musical elements simply coincide.
