Google plans YouTube antipiracy tool for September

Google Inc. aims to deliver in September a long-awaited and much-promised technology to combat piracy in its YouTube video sharing site.

During a hearing Friday in the copyright-infringement lawsuit that Viacom Inc. filed against Google, a Google attorney told the judge Google was working “very intensely” on a video recognition technology, the Associated Press (AP) reported.

The technology will be as sophisticated as fingerprint technology used by the FBI and Google plans to roll it out in the fall, “hopefully in September,” attorney Philip S. Beck of Barlit Beck Herman Palenchar & Scott LLP told U.S. District Judge Louis L. Stanton, according to the AP. Fall runs from late September to late December.
