Submission + - YouTube to Manually Review Some Copyright Claims, Alters Content ID Algorithm->

hypnosec writes: YouTube has announced that it is going to manually review for some of the copyright infringement claims and change its Content ID algorithms that block disputed footage automatically. The problem with the Content ID system was that it functioned largely in auto-pilot mode and there were cases of overmatches and rogue claims where videos were being either hijacked by false claims or were removed all together. Up until now, a user didn’t have any option of disputing the claim when it came to certain types of Content ID claims. But, following the changes to existing methods of analyzing videos and new rules that have been announced, if a content ID match is challenged the rights holder will have the option of either abandoning the claim or filing an official takedown notice under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
