The Google video anti-piracy tool doesn't seem to have been discussed much since its launch. I was wondering who has got caught by it? I uploaded a 6 minute video in which I'd sampled a smallish clip of music from a pop music video that I downloaded from Google in flv format and converted to mp3. Google apparently identified the clip which occurred about 2/3rds of the way through the video.

The message didn't say what had been identified (I'm assuming it was the aforementioned clip) but said that a copyright infringement had been identified based on fingerprints supplied by the copyright holder. The id came a couple of minutes after the video had been uploaded.

Of course this could have been done by one of the army of human reviewers.

I'd take that as literally true - especially since you took the audio track from a Google Video source.

But there was a lot of discussion back in 2007 that it would be too cpu intensive to search through a video etc so I was quite interested to see that this technology does seem to be in place. I was wondering whether anyone else would admit to getting caught?
