Google has released an updated report on how it fights intellectual property rights infringement called “How Google Fights Piracy”; an extensive survey of how assorted Google products, including YouTube, go about in carrying out this mission. The 60-page document, which builds on a report made back in 2014, goes in depth regarding the various tools rights-holders can make use of to control or monetize unauthorized activities online in search related matters: for YouTube, Google’s Play Store, and in advertising. Coincidentally, YouTube is under the gun to pay out more in licensing negotiations. The fact that YouTube’s Content ID system alone has produced $2 billion for partners is also noted in the report.
