Schmidt says YouTube ‘very close’ to filtering system from News.com reports that Google CEO Eric Schmidt says his company is extremely close to launching the much anticipated but very delayed content identification system.

No specific date was given to when the system will go live. Schmidt simply said, “we are very close to turning this on.”
