Searching for duplicates
After uploading a video, the system creates a digital fingerprint and searches all the videos in Yandex.Efir and Yandex Zen for a match. If all or part of these videos match an uploaded video, they're considered duplicates.
You can view the number of duplicates found under the Video tab next to the corresponding video. This number may change as new duplicates are found and removed. To view the list of duplicates, click their number. By clicking on a duplicate, you can go to the page on Yandex.Efir or Yandex Zen that contains the video.
You can report a copyright violation by filling out the form and attaching links to pages with duplicates.
