Claim Your Content: New webmaster tools feature coming?

Google recently registered many domains that strongly suggest a feature to "claim your content" is on the way.  Duplicate content is a huge problem on the internet right now -- and there is no easy way to find the authoritative source for some of it.

Google recently registered many domains that strongly suggest a feature to "claim your content" is on the way.  Duplicate content is a huge problem on the internet right now -- and there is no easy way to find the authoritative source for some of it.  A feature in "Google Webmaster Tools" that lets you claim ownership of this information may solve a huge problem for Google, and for content owners.

Here is a list of domains they recently registered (trust me, when they register domains in this quantity, they aren't doing it for fun):

CLAIM-MY-CONTENT.COM
CLAIM-MY-CONTENT.NET
CLAIM-MY-CONTENT.ORG
CLAIM-OUR-CONTENT.COM
CLAIM-OUR-CONTENT.NET
CLAIM-OUR-CONTENT.ORG
CLAIM-YOUR-CONTENT.COM
CLAIM-YOUR-CONTENT.NET
CLAIM-YOUR-CONTENT.ORG
CLAIMMYCONTENT.COM
CLAIMMYCONTENT.NET
CLAIMMYCONTENT.ORG
CLAIMOURCONTENT.COM
CLAIMOURCONTENT.NET
CLAIMOURCONTENT.ORG
CLAIMYOURCONTENT.COM
CLAIMYOURCONTENT.NET
CLAIMYOURCONTENT.ORG
WWWCLAIM-YOUR-CONTENT.COM
WWWCLAIM-YOUR-CONTENT.NET
WWWCLAIM-YOUR-CONTENT.ORG
WWWCLAIMYOURCONTENT.COM
WWWCLAIMYOURCONTENT.NET
WWWCLAIMYOURCONTENT.ORG

And other regional top level domains too, for example:

CLAIMYOURCONTENT.FR
CLAIM-YOUR-CONTENT.FR
etc.

Now we just have to wait and see!

Update: 

It appears that these domains reflect a tool created for YouTube to combat copyright violations and piracy:

"Schmidt said the new tools, known as "Claim Your Content" could resolve accusations that the world's largest provider of Web search services is tolerating piracy by consumers to share video on its YouTube site." -- Reuters
