Youtube finally intros copyright to protect copyrighted videos. The automatic Video ID recognizing system will automatically check video while it’s being uploaded. It matches the video with existing database of visual representations of videos provided by respective content owners. To use this tool content owners need to apply for “Content Verification Program” by filling a form available here & faxing it to Youtube. Content owners will have options to block their content, allow their content to be posted or allow posting of content in which all the revenue generated from that content will be shared with owner.
This will affect youtube visitors a lot, because more videos that are currently playing in Youtube are not posted by it’s owners. If they remove all those videos, then Youtube might loss it’s current popularity.
