Claim Your Content | YouTube Anti Piracy Measure Coming Soon

26 sec read

YouTube LogoBack in April we heard from Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google — parent company of YouTube, that YouTube will be implementing anti piracy technology “very soon”.

The latest news from YouTube is that the anti piracy technology, named Claim Your Content, will be launched “very soon” (sound similar?). This time however we have been told it will be within “about a month”. It was originally supposed to be ready by 2006.

Claim Your Content is currently being tested with Time Warner Inc. and Walt Disney Co. as well as other unnamed media companies.

The anti-piracy system will use digital fingerprinting technology to help content owners detect when their content has been used without permission on the YouTube site.
