Dailymotion has not yet implemented the system but says it will be introduced on six localized sites in 13 languages. Silicon Alley Insider says the filtering system will not be installed in the U.S.

The filtering technology that Dailymotion will use if from Ina, a digitalized image bank which will provide its "Signature" technology.

If Google’s YouTube could implement a full-proof method for detecting infringing video it would be huge. Google has said it would implement such technology by the end of the year. In April, Eric Schmidt said the company was very close to getting the system launched.

As to why Google has not yet implemented such technology some believe the company underestimated the technical challenges surrounding video fingerprinting. Peter Kafka theorizes that there is another reason why Google has been slow in developing a filtering system.

"Google doesn’t want to turn the filtering system on while it’s deep in its lawsuit with Viacom. If Google shows that it has the ability to detect pirated videos from legit ones, the argument goes, it will undermine its legal case, which basically boils down to ‘hey, we don’t have any control over what users slap up on the site."
