I think google needs to think better about this service..

I'd like to see you try personally go through a million video uploads. I'd like to see you split into a thousand copies of yourself, and even give it a shot then.

The have Terms and Conditions that people's account etc will be terminated if the upload illegal content - and as soon as they come across any such content they delete it.

Programs aren't 100% accurate in filtering this kind of stuff, so it has to be done by humans - and there's no way that kind of service can be instantaneous.

So chill.

As if they'll go through it without using a computer program. It would take way too long and cost way too much. Unless they use the cheap labour from India, the service will probably disadvantage them more then it advantages them.
