Google (GOOG) Copyright Software Sends A Boy To Do A Man's Job

Google (GOOG) came out with the software it would use to flag copyright infringing video on its huge YouTube video-sharing site. “The technology can identify video content owned by media companies and dictate its usage on YouTube,” according to MarketWatch.

But, big media will not be happy. “However, it cannot prevent the posting of potentially infringing content — something that may not sit well with companies such as Viacom (VIA)”.

That won’t work.
