YouTube attempts to tackle copyright infringement issues

YouTube attempts to tackle copyright infringement issues using a new Google feature called, "Copyright Match Tool". This feature will not only ensure that people upload their original content exclusively, but will also notify if some copyright issues are found. YouTubers, who feel their content has been stolen, can then take action against relevant accounts, or choose to remain silent. However, taking action against users who have used content off public domain, or taking action against content which is not categorized under "fair use" terms, is not allowed.

This feature is designed for content creators who have to face multiple unauthorized re-uploads. This latest feature will be put into work the next week. All the accounts with a 100,000 subscribers will be able to use it for beta testing. The company, however, hopes to launch this feature for all YouTubers irrespective of their subscriber counts.
