upload filter

Upload filters are content filters thatcheck the content of information as it is uploaded to a website. Upload filters are related to copyright and ancillary copyright. They filter the content of information in terms of its compliance with the rules.

The filtering includes texts, graphics, photos as well as of voice information. This is intended to prevent copyright infringement and misuse in the use and marketing of information. Furthermore, upload filters can block the upload ofwebsites with cyberbullying, discriminatory, right-wing extremist or violence-glorifying content and prevent malware. In this way, they support IT security.

In the context of copyright protection, the discussion about upload filters is about whether search engine operators have to pay fees for the media executions of third parties, i.e. journalists, editors and publicists, who use them and who are part of their business model.
