re: YouTube Adds Face Blurring For Privacy
I was unaware that this project was underway, I am glad I had the opportunity to read it. It sound like it will be a useful tool for anonymity on the web. I am not saying that this is the solution to video privacy in the web but it is definitely addressing the situation and is a positive step in the right direction. Soltani makes a great point that there are other ways of identifying people based on their features. I am wondering if that technology would be or is as accurate as facial recognition.

re: YouTube Adds Face Blurring For Privacy
This is the perfect solution to independent filming. You can capture a scene in the streets and blur the faces of people that do not want their images to go public...for a variety of reasons. Nobody active in security or the military, outside of political executives, want to go public because it could end their career and even get them or their friends killed.

re: YouTube Adds Face Blurring For Privacy
Interesting...not perfect...but a good start.

What would be a nice additional feature is if someone spots a video that they are in but they didn't film themselves, they click a button to request their face be blurred. This in turn sends a notification to the originator of the video which they could then approve -- or reject.

Granted this may not account for multiple versions of a video, and if the creator says no, then you're out of luck. Still might be something to consider.

I like that idea, sort of like tagging in Facebook. It would and could also help with your personal branding if you find that you are in a number of videos GǣuntaggedGǥ.
