YouTube launched in India
Google launched YouTube in India. The popular video-sharing site debuts in India with a number of partners, including Zoom channel from the Bennet Coleman & Co, UTV and Rajshri Group, among other production houses.
All uploaded content on YouTube is protected by its digital hash technology for copyright protection. This technology makes it very difficult for someone to copy and reload the same content, thus curbing piracy. The company also announced zero tolerance policy towards security of its users online against objectionable content, including porn.
The Internet giant is expecting a huge spurt in usage from India with the Indian-specific YouTube.co.in along with a country-specific video search for the content popular and relevant in India.
