YouTube clarifies its copyright details
YouTube has unveiled a new content identification system that will automatically pickup copyrighted material. Previously, when uploaders flooded the popular video sharing website with content, the party wouldn’t be made aware of any copyright infringements until after the video was placed online. The new system will let users know if the video can be seen worldwide, what other videos have the same artists tagged, and whether or not ads can appear and monetization can be attained. The new changes will potentially help burgeoning artists promote their music on the proper platforms, although DMCA takedowns will certainly still reign supreme across the video platform.
