YouTube Set To Test Video Fingerprinting

YouTube, owned by Google Inc., is set to test a video fingerprinting program with Time Warner and Disney that will ID users who upload copyrighted video content. After the media moguls are notified, they can choose whether they want to remove it or keep it up. Once implemented, the program could block the uploading of copyrighted videos. This would cut down on a lot of re-posts on YouTube. Google has already been privately testing audio fingerprinting for the music industry. See the whole story here.
