◎根據(Music Business Worldwide)，Spotify目前正在研究一種技術，該技術將讓您知道您的歌曲是否正在復制另一樂曲中的元素。Spotify最近為一項名為“剽竊風險檢測器和界面”技術，申請歐洲專利。根據MBW的介紹，樂譜將透過檢測器，檢查預先存在數據庫中的多種樂曲。在檢查一致性之後，將顯示檢測到的抄襲水平，其中包括和弦，旋律，和聲等因素，使作曲者可以在錄製最終版本之前，調整其音樂元素。
We've seen some pretty big name artists over the years involved in plagiarism lawsuits, but those days could soon be coming to an end with the help of a new artificial intelligence technology being developed by Spotify.
According to Music Business Worldwide, the streaming giant is currently working on technology that will let you know if your song is copying an element from another composition, with the possibility of it even being close to a real time application.
Spotify recently filed for a European patent for what is being dubbed a "Plagiarism Risk Detector and Interface" technology. According to MBW, a "lead sheet" of score or musical notations will be fed through the detector, which would then access preexisting encoded lead sheets to check for plurality of compositions within its database. After examining the consistencies, a set of messages would then display the "detected level of plagiarism" singling out chord sequence, melody fragments, harmony and other factors.
The turnaround time also weighs significantly as a potential plus, with the possibility of a near turnaround allowing the songwriter/composer to tweak elements of their music before spending time (and money) recording a final version.
While Spotify acknowledged in the filing that other plagiarism-detecting techniques have been proposed prior, they argue that their new technology will provide "significant improvements over manual approaches, they still require significant expertise and are not suited for operation by typical artists and composers, especially artists and composers who are interested in detecting plagiarism during the composition process."
“Such a tool would allow artists to generate lead sheets more quickly and confidently by detecting and providing visual feedback as to whether any aspect of the work has a probability of being deemed plagiaristic," stated Spotify in the filing.
