Sony has patented software designed to combat pirated content played on smart TVs.

The documentation refers to a monitoring program integrated with the operating system. It will have its own database and will be able to analyze the content of the videos that the user is viewing, according to

This system will make it possible to suspend the playback of pirated content due to image decoding.

So far, this development has not been implemented in reality — it is only a patent. There is currently no information on whether the company plans to really resort to such a radical means of combating copyright infringement.

Recall that CES 2023 presented the world’s first 55-inch OLED panel with a 4K camera and Wi-Fi 6E protocol, created by the startup Displace.
