San Francisco: It is heartbreaking to see the video you produced with so much effort getting stolen or worse, replicated on another channel without your permission.

To curb the menace, YouTube is releasing a new tool called Copyright Match tool to let creators see if their videos are being stolen and take relevant action against it, The Verge reported.

The tool will be rolled out to creators with over 100,000 subscribers starting next week. It will notify creators if there are copies of their original videos surfacing on the platform.
