Final Year Project

Protecting Copyright Ownership via Identification of Remastered Music in Radio Broadcasts

• According to the “Intellectual Property Act” of Sri Lanka, royalties must be paid to the artistes when a song is broadcasted on a radio broadcast. In order to streamline and regulate royalty payment process, a radio broadcast monitoring system is needed. Currently a radio broadcast monitoring system is being used as a result of past few years research and development. But that system is unable to identify music when they are remastered by the radio channel. This project focuses on identifying such remastered music in radio broadcasts to protect the copyright ownership.
