Default YouTube Now Blocks Copyright Material First, Asks Questions Later

Imagine then my surprise that after the clip had finished prcoessing, YouTube immediately identified it as being in breach of copyright and didnít allow it to go up.

I was then redirected to an option where by I could lodge a dispute to the claim; the end result in the picture above.

To YouTubeís credit the movie was quickly included again, but the process still begs the question: why has YouTube seemingly abandoned the DMCA process in favor of blocking material upfront, and automatically presuming that the uploader isnít authorized to share the material?
