YouTube has a filter that should cut down copyright violations immensely
YouTube officially launched its new copyrighted video filter technology. This new filter will remove any video it finds that has copyright shortly after it is posted.

The trick however is, the content owners of the copyrighted video have to supply YouTube what they want protected by uploading the video to the reference database.

If successful, and adopted by content owners, when a video is uploaded to Google-owned YouTube, the content is automatically compared to videos on the reference database. If there’s a match, the copyrighted content owner can block the video.

However, the person who uploaded it can contest the block. Reportedly, copyright holders will also have an option to allow the videos to remain and sell ads to go with it.
