Webware reports that Google will create a system through which copyrighted videos will not appear in their search engine result pages.

Philip Beck, one of Google's attorneys said that, "Google, which acquired YouTube in October, plans to generate a library of digital video fingerprints that would be used by a computer system to screen clips being uploaded to YouTube. Beck also added that the screening process would take only a few minutes to determine whether a clip is copyright material."

A Google spokesman told webware, "We hope to have the testing completed and technology available by sometime in the Fall. But this is one of the most technologically complicated tasks that we have ever undertaken, and as always with cutting-edge technologies, it's difficult to forecast specific launch dates."

In May this year Viacom sued Google for a sum of $1 billion for Copyright infringement as Google's YouTube has around 1,00,000 video clips from Comedy Central, MTV and other Viacom owned media companies.

In previous occasions Eric Schmidt informed that Google was very close to creating this filtering system. Comparitively smaller video sharing sites like Dailymotion.com, Eyespot and Guba already have copyright-filtering technology.
