Facebook faces copyright issues amid video explosion
from Copyright and Technology
It's fairly well established by now — thanks to court decisions like Viacom v. YouTube and UMG v. Veoh — that online service operators have no legal duty to proactively police their services for potential copyright infringement. But that doesn't mean that some services don't do it anyway. The biggest example is Google's Content ID system for YouTube, which uses fingerprinting technology to flag uploads that contain copyrighted material.
