Thought about weaponized copyright take downs 

These reports about police playing copyrighted music while being recorded in the hopes of triggering automated copyright infringement take downs gave me a thought. If they're playing known song recordings, then with some post processing it might be possible to effectively subtract just the offending audio. Of course, going from concept to something everyone could use easily is quite a large leap.

Automating this could be a bit difficult.

Low-tech version would be simply to mute all sounds and write a transcript/subtitles. Police violence is police violence, even without sound.

@ParadeGrotesque Yeah, automation would be tough, and only somewhat less difficult even if people could identify the offending songs to start with.

I agree that your idea is much better. :)
