YouTube has changed its “Advertiser-Friendly Content Guidelines.” Again. The latest legal verbiage disqualifies payment for videos that present a “controversial or sensitive subject and event, including subject related to war, political conflicts, natural disasters and tragedies, even if graphic imagery is not shown.”
The main concern is that YouTube has now created such a broad and subjective definition of what is prohibited that no one will ever be able to confidently create a video without fear that it will someday be flagged and then de-monetized… and that’s for channels that have nothing to do with guns. You can imagine the discussions going on with gun channels right now as we can see the writing on the wall more clearly than ever before.
As Herr Twang und Bang points out, full30.com is already offering a suitable alternative. GetZone.com is also well worth a visit. If YouTube pulls the plug on gun videos and channels look for these and others to take off. Even more.
