YouTube tweaks ad strategy to curb content stealing

YouTube Now Requires Partners to Have At Least 10000 Channel Views Before They Get Paid

YouTube Now Requires Partners to Have At Least 10000 Channel Views Before They Get Paid

It encourages beginners to check out its Creator Academy for tips on how to produce original content and grow an audience. From now on, creators won't be able to turn on monetization until they hit 10,000 lifetime views on their channel. After today, however, that source of income will be shut down.

YouTube is facing a significant backlash for displaying ads from partners against video containing racist and otherwise objectionable content. Google apologized for the mistake, and adapted its policies, but some major brands, including Coca-Cola, PepsiCo (which is rich considering its subsequent Kendall Jenner snafu) and Walmart pulled advertising other than targeted search following reports of the ads being displayed against unsavory content by the WSJ.

This comes not too long after YouTube was raked over the coals for allegedly allowing prominent advertisements to appear in offensive propaganda bids.

White House defends Trump aide after legally questionable tweet
Justin Amash, a Republican member of the House Freedom Caucus, was a "liability" that must be defeated in the next primaries. He noted the page was not simply about personal things but was "chock full of official stuff".

YouTube has today announced a change to the way in which its contributors can make money from the platform. The YouTube Partner Program only opened up to all YouTube users a few years ago, which let anyone with a YouTube account start getting paid for ads nearly immediately. "Together these new thresholds will help ensure revenue only flows to creators who are playing by the rules" continued Bardin. But the rest of the change in policy should definitely help to pick out the channels that post unoriginal content. YouTube believes that the minimum view policy would give it enough time to identify the legitimacy of a channel and award them compensation accordingly.

"In a few weeks, we'll also be adding a review process for new creators who apply to be in the YouTube Partner Program". In the years since, many scammers and opportunistic intellectual thieves have swiped creators' videos and re-uploaded them under their own accounts to try and make some ad revenue money. This certainly sends a message to the YouTube creator community and anyone looking to start a profitable YouTube channel: if you want to get paid, you have to play nice.
