    Question Thoughts on YouTube's "New Policy" ?

    TL;DR

    YouTube is basically no longer allowing people to monetize their videos if their video contains the following or breaks YouTube TOS:



    Big YouTubers are getting their old videos de-monetized which means those videos won't make any more money. Entire YouTube channels may die out if they do not follow these guidelines.

    According to H3H3, they are all doing this b/c of the tags content creators put in their videos. When a "blacklisted" word is used as a tag, an automated system picks up on that and disables/limits monetizing for that video. The reason behind that is advertisers pay YouTube to display their ads on videos which means that they don't want their ads being played on videos that have obscene tags such as rape, murder, and suicide.

    Watch the H3H3 video to better understand what I'm talking about.

     



    In my opinion, I think companies that pay YouTube to advertise their stuff have the right to say where they want their ad to be played. The only wrong doing here is how YouTube (in the past) did not specify any of this to the content creators or to the public. They were and have been doing this behind doors for years. That's shady as fuck if you ask me...

    It's complete shit, it's either going to lead to the death of their platform or YouTube turning into fucking daytime television.

    Honestly, I don't know what to think of it, but I do think they updated the notification of it, like in the past, you weren't notified. As I am also a content creator and small in this matter, I wasn't like affected at all... I guess I'm lucky or something

    The fact that they are applying it to basically all videos from before this change doesn't seem too right to me.

    Should only have applied to videos uploaded as of the change but oh well, at least now it will stop people from posting all this stuff on YouTube if they want money as well

    You probably didn't put obscene words in your tags.

    This is retarded...like...this effects basics every single channel in one way or another. No vulgar language? You can't even talk about natural disasters. Remember that earthquake? No we can't talk about that.

    Well, I'm a gameplay / walkthrough channel, so no need to put "Rape" on my tags unless it happens in the game

    In my opinion, people are going to use explicit language, people are going to talk about topics that are against TOS because YouTubers are human, they can't be expected to nor should they be threatened to lose money over having opinions and speaking freely.

    I'm not too sure that they'll stick with it... It's just so retarded. It's supposed to be "advertiser-friendly" yet YouTube has FPS-game ads.
    InB4 squeakers take over YouTube.

    Makes sense, it'll stop retards from using totally irrelevant tags for their videos to get attention.
    If you need bad shit in order to be entertained, go watch movies. People use youtube for other reasons too.

    Their platform, they have the right to chose what's shown. Youtube will not die, creators just have to change up their content. It's also not censorship when they demonetize a video that is breaking their ToS. A lot of people are crying 'FREEEEDOM OF SPEECH!" which is retarded because it's their platform. People need to stop crying about it and get rid of the rape, jew, nigger, etc tags in their vids.
