In the TED video presentation above, Margaret Gould Stewart of YouTube describes the YouTube policies and practices regarding rights management, royalties, copyright, licensing, and intellectual property. There are over 20 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every minute. As a result, YouTube analyzes over 100 years of video daily (more than 876,000 hours) and compares them to over a millions of videos and songs in their database. Rights owners have pre-defined policies, such as, inserting advertising to capture revenue from posted content.
