YouTube Misses Deadline for Anti- Piracy Tool

Popular and controversial video sharing site, YouTube, now owned by Google, is getting too hot to handle for the search giant, considering the number of copyright related lawsuits and warnings hurled at it.

The video sharing site had promised to develop an anti piracy tool before it was bought over by Google, but has failed to deliver a system to prevent piracy of copyrighted material on the portal.

As reported earlier, the 'advanced content identification and royalty reporting system' was the crux of the agreement between YouTube and Warner Music Group in September, before it was acquired by Google.
