YouTube to video ID software

Inevitable, inexorable march towards the Disney-fication of all media continues.

BBC: YouTube to test video ID software
Online 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.

In March, media company Viacom launched a lawsuit against the company for $1bn (£507m).

The firm, which owns MTV and Nickelodeon, charged Google and YouTube with “massive intentional copyright infringement” for alleged unauthorised use of its clips.

It is also being sued by the English Premier League over alleged copyright infringement.

YouTube has denied these claims, but it has vowed to take a tough line on copyright violation.

live from Austin Texas, Willie Nelson performs Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain. Note to self: go to the freaking post office already, sheesh.


Willie Nelson called me one day and asked if he could appear as a guest in our Time 4 Hemp Studios. To discuss how hemp can help the family farm. On 6/6/91 we taped live. I later went on the 91'hemp tour and we were able to get all ten shows into 99 cities in 44 states.
