Abstract

This article describes a method of using Web services and existing Internet technologies to help censor inappropriate content in entertainment media. When audio or video is being played, a Web service informs the playing device (e.g. MP3 software on a PC) of when censoring is required. The device/software then automatically filters out the offending material.
