YouTube to test video ID software

From BBC News:

Internet video site YouTube is to test a new video fingerprinting technology to address copyright concerns.

The software will identify unique attributes in video clips and could be used to prevent copyrighted clips from being uploaded without permission.

YouTube executive Chris Maxcy told news agency Reuters that the tool would be tested in a month’s time.

Breach of copyright has been an ongoing issue for the Google-owned video sharing site.
