Perceptual Hashes for Copyright Protection and Copybot Detection
Perceptual hashes can be used to tell you how similar two images are to each other, without having to reference either images. This could be used to quickly detect copyright violations by detecting slightly modified versions of ‘borrowed’ images. I have extended this to calculating perceptual hashes of 3D objects.

After 4 decades of writing code in the Real World, Kayaker Magic has been scripting in virtual worlds since 2008. By taking apart items made by Arcadia Asylum, Kayaker learned a great deal about building vehicles in OpenSim, animating, 3D modeling, UV mapping, texture mapping and efficient mesh. He wants to preserve Arcadia’s work so others can learn these lessons as well.
