TechCrunch: YouTube launches new tool for finding and removing unauthorized re-uploads

TechCrunch: YouTube launches new tool for finding and removing unauthorized re-uploads. “Re-uploading videos on YouTube is a favorite of scammy channels that try to profit from other people’s work. Copyright owners already have a number of ways to protect their content, but today, the service is introducing a new tool that automatically scans every newly uploaded video to check if it’s a re-upload of an existing one or ‘very similar’ to a video that’s already on the site.”
