    I haven't invented or tested this method (why to reinvent a wheel?), but this guys was very thorough:
    hxxp://www.csh.rit.edu/~parallax/

    Executive summary:

    By using audio editor, speed up the audio content for negligible 5%, or kill off first 30 second of audio, since it only scans that area.

    Enjoy and exploit!

    Or better: speed up the first 32 seconds by 5% and then make a fade to the normal speed (to make it sound natural) :)

    It is also good to know that large porn content providers use audio fingerprinting as well to find pirated content (I cannot find a link, but I remember that from one interview), so if you have problems with DMCA as well, try some of this methods on your porn uploads.

    Adding reverb definitely helped me. I had this movie trailer that I uploaded several times and each time it had copyright issues. Adding reverb in Sony Vegas solved the problem and it sounds cool.
