18:26 EDTFBFacebook tests technology to prevent sharing of stolen videos
In a company blog post published Thursday, Facebook stated, "We've heard from some of our content partners that third parties too frequently misuse their content on Facebook. For instance, publishers have told us that their videos are sometimes uploaded directly to Facebook without their permission. This practice has been called 'freebooting,' and it's not fair... To address this, we have been exploring ways to enhance our rights management tools to better empower creators to control how their videos are shared on Facebook... We're working with [audio fingerprinting technology] Audible Magic to enhance the way that system works with Facebook, including improving the intake of content intended to be blocked from our platform. And we're making improvements to our existing procedures so that infringing content can be reported and removed more efficiently, and to keep repeat infringers off our service... [However,] some publishers with particular needs, including creators whose videos have gone viral, have been asking for more tools. To this end, we have been building new video matching technology that will be available to a subset of creators. This technology is tailored to our platform, and will allow these creators to identify matches of their videos on Facebook across Pages, profiles, groups, and geographies. Our matching tool will evaluate millions of video uploads quickly and accurately, and when matches are surfaced, publishers will be able to report them to us for removal. We will soon begin testing the beta version of this matching technology with a small group of partners, including media companies, multi-channel networks and individual video creators."

14:42 EDTAAPLFitbit shares approach historical lows as Apple Watch gains traction
Fitbit (FIT) shares are eyeing their lowest levels since their IPO in June after the IDC reported that Apple (AAPL) Watch shipments are nipping on the heels of Fitbit's market dominance in wearables. WHAT'S NEW: The International Data Corporation, or IDC, released its quarterly wearables device report on Thursday, showing that Apple reached the number two spot in the global wearables market with 3.6M shipments of the Apple Watch during Q2. Notably, Apple Watch shipments lagged just 800,000 units behind Fitbit's 4.4M units for the quarter. Total shipment volume for the space was up 223.2% year-over-year to 18.1M. Commenting on the metrics, IDC research manager Ramon Llamas said Apple's "participation benefits multiple players and platforms within the wearables ecosystem," though he also cautioned that the tech giant "forces other vendors -- especially those that have been part of this market for multiple quarters -- to re-evaluate their products and experiences." Rounding out the numbers, Xiaomi shipped 3.1M wearable units in Q2, while Garmin (GRMN) shipped 700,000, and Samsung (SSNLF) shipped 600,000. HARDWARE CHALLENGES: Aside from concerns of user churn, an oft-noted potential risk for Fitbit investors is the potential that limited-use fitness wearables will be absorbed into grander, multi-function devices. On June 21, Barron's opined that specialized devices "often get subsumed," and provided the example of iPod's music functions being largely replaced by similar features in the iPhone. Various research firms have downplayed the "absorption" issue, however. On June 25, Leerink remarked that fitness trackers "occupy a different piece" of the market, and on June 30, RBC said its studies at the time showed divergence between fitness wearables and smart watches. Leerink reiterated its bullish view of the sector as recently as August 24, commenting that "interest in the category remains deep." PRICE ACTION: Shares of Fitbit have plunged roughly 9% in intraday trading, while Apple is up about 2% amid broader market gains.
