I assume this is the "Claim your Content" tool announced in mid April of this year. They keep saying they are close to turning on the filtering system or that it will happen soon. Once it does happen, will users see a decline in videos on both YouTube and Google video? Will we still be able to find that obscure music video that was there a month ago?

<<The so-called video fingerprinting tools, which identify unique attributes in the video clips, will be available for testing in about a month, a YouTube executive said.

"The technology was built with the Disney's and Time Warner's in mind," Chris Maxcy, YouTube partner development director, said, adding that, since early this year, Google has been testing audio-fingerprinting tools with record labels.

These tools will be used to identify copyrighted material, after which media companies can decide if they would like to remove the material or keep it up, as part of a revenue-sharing deal with YouTube, which can sell advertising alongside it.>>


- Can I get my revenue-sharing deal too for my half dozen videos people copied to YouTube, or is copyright restricted to big companies?

- When they identify key attributes in the movie, will they make sure to not infringe on fair use (which allows me to take smaller parts from videos by Disney, Warner Bros and others)?

- Will this set a precedent that erodes the Safe Harbour laws (which do not require you to have such "pre-moderating" technology)?

- Will users who uploaded the video also get a part of the revenue?

". . . adding that, since early this year, Google has been testing audio-fingerprinting tools with record labels": interesting. A sign that a Google Music – in some form – is on its way, as soon as the music industry can be reassured?
