Does anyone know whether You Tube detects duplicate copy in terms of video, channel and playlist descriptions?

Logically, I would have thought that using virtually identical copy would be an issue, but there seems to be no discussion/artices surrounding this issue.

It's a point I'd raised at an SEO-for-video session at one of the conferences, I think a year or two ago, as there is a video submission service that submits your video to a bunch of video sites, but with the same info for all of them.

There was some consensus that this would be a downside with regard to that type of submission, but no one had any hard information.
