  • Software disables camera at live event
  • Could be used at Big Day Out, Grand Finals
  • Seen as attempt to make more money
APPLE wants to stop you from filming rock concerts and sporting events on your smartphone.
The company is working on technology that will automatically disable a person’s iPhone camera when it is used to film a live event.
Apple filed a patent application for the software 18 months ago, according to information obtained by The Times (behind paywall).
The software could stop ticket-holders to the Big Day Out, State of Origin and the NRL and AFL grand finals filming the occasion on their iPhone.
Anybody trying to film an event with their iPhone would attract the attention of infra-red sensors installed at the venue.
The sensors would instruct the iPhone to disable its camera. However, the phone’s ability to make a call or send text messages would not be affected.
The Times reports that the technology is being seen as an attempt to protect the rights of event organisers and TV broadcasters who have exclusive rights to film an event and are upset when phone videos appear on YouTube, allowing people to watch the event free.
The software may allow Apple to negotiate better terms with record labels for selling content though iTunes.
Hans Eriksson, chairman of Swedish tech firm Bambuser, which has built an app allowing people to stream their live recordings on the internet, told The Times: “Apple is smart. I assume Apple is not doing this just to protect against people sharing copyrighted material.
"Hopefully, they see there’s an opportunity to make money here.”
Apple refused to comment on the report.
