If you are fond of sharing pirated video contents without notifying the original creators, then Facebook has something in stock about to take you out of business. The social media giant recently bought Source3, a technology which will help fight against illegal sharing of contents over the internet without authorization from the proprietors.

An announcement made on source3 website shows that both the technology and some of the team behind it will now work with Facebook. It is true that Facebook has always been plagued with pirated contents shared by users on its platform and in that light, unveiled “Rights Manager” technology, two years ago to help identify and remove video files uploaded by users who do not have the permission to do so.

“We’re excited to work with the Source3 team and learn from the expertise they’ve built in intellectual property, trademarks and copyright,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement shared with Recode “As always, we are focused on ensuring we serve our partners well.”

Things are about to change with Source3 in the hands of Facebook and we at TechIsBae hope to see them win this war.

Additional resources: Facebook has acquired a content rights startup called Source3 to help fight video pirates
