Google vows to Police YouTube better

Google vows to remove illegal YouTube videos

Google has vowed to take better care of copyright infringement on YouTube, the company it recently bought out for $1.65B. It is believed that many lawsuits previously were held back, because YouTube was a small, new company, but now that Google owns it, it's gloves off for the copyright enforcers.

When a comment was made about YouTube having a rule against copyright infringement, a Google representative replied that when material that infringes copyright is put onto Google Video, it is removed, but cannot speak for YouTube because the takeover of the company is not quite complete.
