Google chief Eric Schmidt told attendees at the NAB conference that the company is close to implementing a content filtering system that would block copyrighted content from being uploaded to the popular video sharing site.

CNET News reports that the service will be called "Claim Your Content." There was no mention of which technology the company is using.

Google originally promised to have such a system up and running by October of last year. The delays since then have upset several content owners, including Viacom, which filed a $1 billion copyright infringement lawsuit against Google.
