Hundreds Of Full-length Movies Appearing On Youtube -- Illegally

Amir Efrati, who covers the major Internet operators such as Google and Yahoo! for the Wall Street Journal, noticed that several full-length feature films were available on YouTube. Checking further he discovered that indeed hundreds of movies, generating hundreds of millions of views, had been uploaded during just the past year. In a report for the Journal today (Friday), Efrati remarked, Why the movie studios didn't block the films by using a special YouTube program -- called Content ID --for identifying their copyrighted content is a mystery. When he contacted the studios, he reported, each declined to comment. However, Howard Gantman, a spokesman for the Motion Picture Association of America told Efrati: We are aware of the issue and are concerned about it. Our member companies have raised the issue with YouTube and hope they will work cooperatively with us to fix it.
