As well as extended length movies YouTube will also be enforcing more stringent copyright controls on uploaded content, by using a Content ID system that will allow Google to detect and block and violating movies.
According to Joshua Siegel, a product manager at YouTube, he told The New York Times that the company now has copyright issues under control via ContentID, where it will scan around 100 years worth of uploaded video every single day in order to fend off violations.
