YouTube, which implemented Content ID in 2007 to help producers manage their rights and generate revenues from copyright-infringing content, has hit $1B in payments to companies that participate in the program and Fred von Lohmann, legal director for copyright at Google, credits the program for diffusing much of the tension the site previously had with copyright holders, reported Financial Times. Via Content ID, copyright owners can “monetize” their content by allowing ads to be sold against it or have the video blocked and taken down and von Lohmann told Financial Times that the "vast majority" choose to monetize.
