New YouTube Copyright Watchdog
YouTube, a huge repository of copyright infringing content, is testing new technology to help police its own pages. This could provide better defenses for YouTube under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to a hail of copyright infringement suits. How you may ask? The DMCA requires service providers to institute proactive procedures to remove infringing content. If adequate procedures are in place, service providers may escape liability for infringing content posted by its users. Better procedures may equal a stronger defense to infringement claims.
