The latest version of the S.O.C.I.A.L. Platform adds enhanced copyright protection and screening systems to allow content owners and media companies to add user-generated content functionality while protecting copyright owners' rights. These systems include multiple screens and filters for reviewing and removing copyright infringing, offensive and/or obscene content that may be uploaded by users.

"Since its launch, DAVE's S.O.C.I.A.L. Platform has changed the way content owners distribute, syndicate and promote content by leveraging viral marketing and social interaction," says Rex Wong, CEO of DAVE Networks. "The latest version of our S.O.C.I.A.L. Platform enables companies to leverage the Web 2.0 and user-generated content revolution made popular by MySpace and YouTube to empower and interact with their users while protecting the rights of content owners."

DAVE Networks enables brands to utilize S.O.C.I.A.L. as a turnkey, white label technology platform to create quick time-to-market, interactive video social community portals that function as a public hub where customers, fans, and users can develop dynamic personalized profiles, upload and share content, blog/video blog, comment on message boards, and much more.
