New Developments in the Transcriptions Industry

Speech Recognition Technology is one of the developments that simply won’t stop speaking to the imagination. Complete interaction between objects and users has been a feature in many science-fiction movies, and its possible applications are truly exciting. Whether it is giving commands to any electronic object or dictating long speeches that get transcribed instantly, speech recognition has the potential to make life a lot easier.
While the technology has been around for over 2 decades, its development has reached a plateau since the late 90s. Google Search by Voice and Siri has certainly made the technology more popular, but its accuracy levels have not changed much over the past few years. Research indicates that speech recognition accuracy levels skyrocketed from 48% to 81% in 1995 and 1999-2001 respectively, to stagnate since.
Of course an accuracy level of 81% is still incredible and will suffice in many applications, but what happens when you start replacing transcription services with speech recognition technology?
Unfortunately the accuracy levels are simply not up to par with current audio transcriptions. While speech recognition can go a great way in dictating instructions and emails, the process of providing academic, conference call, or even market research transcriptions is simply out of its league. Traditional transcription providers put transcripts through a series of proofing and quality control processes, to ensure a level of accuracy that speech recognition can’t match. When it comes to captioning and typing out transcripts, it appears speech recognition is not the stand-alone solution that can go without re-editing from a trained transcriptionist.
The voice related technology does have its proponents in the transcription industry and many consumers have already adopted it. One often cited benefit for transcription users is the potential cost reduction. Unfortunately many people underestimate the implementation costs and fail to oversee that many of the transcribed documents still need extensive re-editing and proofing to ensure the quality of the transcript. It is true that in theory you may reduce labor costs but in practice you will find that you’re nowhere near your target productivity level and cost savings.
Speech recognition presents some great potential applications and has certainly drawn enough attention in the past few years. It does look however like its accuracy development has hit a wall., it is currently far from being sophisticated enough to completely replace human operators, and unless this changes, the technology is not a viable substitute for transcription services.…

How Copyright Protection Works in the IPR and Entertainment Industry

Copyright is a term describing laws to reserve the rights of creative works to their original creators, or subsequent legal owners, for a specific period of time. A copyright is not the same thing as an industrial patent, which protects inventions and designs of tangible physical objects. Copyrights are instead related to intellectual property-music, books, art works, movies and films, and technology like computer software and databases. IPR insurance provides the copyright owner with the resources needed to take action against unauthorized use of intellectual property and receive compensation.
What’s Covered
Copyright laws typically grant the author or creator-or another party who legally holds the rights to the creation-the legal right to either permit or prohibit particular acts involving his or her unique work. These include: Reproduction in any media that might be applicable such as print or sound recordings, distribution of copies for sale or free, and performance, broadcasting or any other dissemination in a public media. Translation into additional languages and conversion or adaptation into some other genre -adapting a book into a Broadway play, for instance-is also limited by the copyright holder.
Limitations
Copyright laws in the entertainment industry incorporate limitations that allow for use of creative expression without fulfilling the usual procedures to gain rights or compensate the creator. Often, if a creative work is not written down or formally recorded in some manner-certain dance choreography, for example-its use may not be restricted by copyright. Another example of copyright limitation would be governmental decisions, transcripts of legal texts and other official documents. These are generally open to free use by anyone.
Free and Not-So-Free Use
Free use is another copyright limitation, which allows use of creative work in the entertainment industry without authorization by the copyright owner or compensation to the copyright owner. Free use typically applies to scenarios where reasonably small portions of a larger work are excerpted or quoted and the name of the original creator of the work is properly included in mention. Free use also extends to using portions of a creative work for the purpose of education or for use in news reporting. If a copyrighted work falls under the category of a non-voluntary license, the portion of work may still be used without specific authorization; however, the holder of the copyright must be compensated. This is another scenario in which the resources of IPR insurance could be critical to receiving payment for copyright violation-particularly for the smaller, individual player in the entertainment industry who may not possess the assets or clout to pursue violations without insurance backing.
Copyright Duration
No copyright lasts forever. A copyright is valid for a specific span of time during which the rights of the copyright owner are fully enforceable under the law. Generally, the beginning of the copyright is considered to be the moment the work has been created or placed in some permanent form such as written down, recorded or photographed or filmed. Copyright laws are designed so the copyright will outlive its original owner by some period of time so that his or her heirs may benefit from the original creator’s work. In the United States and the European Union, for example, the laws state that the copyright of works of creative and entertainment arts remain viable for 70 years following the death of the original creator.
IPR insurance is a valuable complement to the array of copyright laws that protect creators in the entertainment industry. It provides the assets and security to allow parties of all sizes to compete on a level playing field in the enforcement of copyright laws and obtain just, proper compensation when they are violated.…
