They must have some sort of automated process that runs the uploaded video's audio through a waveform analyzer, and compared to a massive database, similar to Shazam. If copyrighted music is found, it is flagged immediately, and the appropriate action is taken.

I think you're right... today youtube forced me to delete the clip, but I uploaded it with the original sound from the hall, so here's the link: http://youtu.be/-jAbiYyAIYE
