YouTube to test copyright tech soon
June 12, 2007
Finally an announcement from YouTube that they will be testing video fingerprinting technology soon. This comes hot on the heels of their tests with Audible Magics audio identification software so it sounds like they may implement them both.
Apparently tests are going to begin with Time Warner and Walt Disney, so if they can get it right for these two media behemoths then hopefully that should satisfy the other media companies.
The technology should be available in approx a month for testing. I would imagine it’ll be rushed out as soon as they can to stop the incoming waves of lawsuits.
