Report: YouTube Testing Video Recognition Software

12 Jun, 2007 By: Erik Gruenwedel

In an attempt to curb third party uploading of copyrighted material, YouTube has reportedly partnered with Time Warner and The Walt Disney Co. to begin testing video recognition software.

In March, YouTube, which is owned by search behemoth Google Inc., was sued for $1 billion by Viacom, among other litigation, for claims it didn't properly police or thwart copyrighted material from appearing on the site.

Earlier this year, YouTube began employing audio recognition software in an effort to curb illegal uploading of copyrighted music files.
