Youtube's filtering system
Heh, so YouTube launches its new filtering system aimed at filtering out illegally uploaded content. It works by comparing the uploaded file to a vast library of known copyrighted works.
So, this means that anyone who wants to prevent people from uploading stuff to Youtube must give a copy to Youtube. Which means Google.
This is a brilliant move by Google: now everyone and their cousins will be rushing to give copies of everything they have ever made to Google, essentially creating the largest library in the world. Granted, it won't be public, but that's just a matter of negotiation, once the content is in the system. And at any rate, Google can index all the content, which already brings more value to their search engine.
