First I have to note, it's nothing related to DMCA & Copyright problems.
Since 2017 if not earlier Russia suffers ultimate uncovered shot against law system as it's known, biggest one:
just look at rupression dot com.
Since some moment it appeared, that audio records where edited to combine seemingly valid evidences.
Although it's insufficient when lone, you could find, that there are no more laws - only imination.
What really worries me - this time specialists managed to discover editing signs.
But what if they had more advanced software (god knowes, what they had this time, and what's their skill with it).
I'm educating for software engineer (really broad direction, including system dev, java, web, project management, etc).
For main project I choose to do spectral editing tool, more advanced than arss. For example, instead of simple resynth, it should allow spectrogram based matching. Just like specmatch, but with arss-like workflow.
I worried about this problem since 2018-2019 transit period, when first discovered about that case.
Now I'm in indecision, even considering to begin completely different project, from different area, unrelated to audio.
- Could try to intentionally make it hard to use (kkkkkk), but even for basic arss one could write some scripts.
- Another wild idea - probably some sort of watermark (kkk). Not a wanted thing for free software, yet could be easily disabled unless somehow obfuscated (again hi floss).
Is it ever good idea to discuss it open?
Would be great to make it unavailable without login, to prevent indexed by G-brother, and thus eventually found by unwanted readers).
