Title
(EN) SPOILER PREVENTION
Abstract
(EN)

Methods, systems and computer program products are provided for spoiler prevention. Media consumption applications may be placed in “spoiler-free” mode, for example, to prevent media content from spoiling first-hand user experience. A user may provide and/or authorize access to and use of spoiler prevention information. A user may request media content (e.g., while surfing the Internet). Digital media content to be presented to a user may be searched in real-time and/or pre-searched for spoiler content and/or associated spoiler indications relative to spoiler prevention information. Identified spoiler content may be concealed from users. A procedure may be provided for users to determine one or more reasons why content is concealed, to selectively reveal concealed content, and to provide feedback whether concealed content was or was not spoiler content for a user. Feedback may be used to improve spoiler prevention, for example, by retraining a machine learning model, which may be user-specific.
