Last week, Google announced that Google Alerts is now compatible with Google Video. Barry over at Search Engine Land illustrates how this is done:

Google Video Alerts

Now, Google Alerts can email you when certain key phrases are found in News, Web, Blogs, Comprehensive (News, Web & Blogs combined), Video, and Google Groups. More information can be found at the Google Alerts FAQ.

Already, people are receiving reports about the incoming alerts. Tedster at WebmasterWorld found a video that violated copyright:

I recently got an alert for a new video about a client. It wasn't authorized and it was violating copyright, so this already helped us.

Pretty cool use for alerts, that's for sure.

Forum discussion continues at WebmasterWorld.
