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

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. 

The current protections include 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.
