Hey, copyright holders: if you’re still having some intern troll YouTube for your content and send DMCA takedown notices (often mistakenly), then you’re stupid. YouTube’s content identification system is now in use by over 1,000 content owners, with 100,000 hours of content spread over one million reference files.
YouTube’s content identification system allows content owners to share ad revenue whenever their stuff is uploaded to YouTube. Remember that DMCA takedown notices require sworn statements. Not only does that bumbling intern of yours fail to make you money, he also risks getting you into legal and PR trouble.
Fire that intern, sign up for the content ID program, and make some money already. That is, unless your corporate Big Media brain is unable to grasp the concept of making money.
