YouTube launches Copyright Match tool to Get Rid of Scammers
YouTube has launched a new tool called Copyright Match, which will help content creators in getting rid of channels that steal original content and then re-upload them. The tool scans throw every newly uploaded video to check if it has been uploaded before, or is similar to any other videos.
For this to work, the videos can’t be clips, and the original uploader would need to have uploaded the video before the re-uploaded video. Once the tool is done scanning, it will show the creator all the matches, and give them a few options to deal with the uploads. Creators with more than 100,000 subscribers will be able to use this tool starting next week.
