from The Daily Bell:
YouTube says the demonetization is the result of changes to its notification system, and not a reflection of changes in its policies, it’s unclear why DeFranco and other vloggers are just getting flagged on content now even though many of them have been posting similar videos to YouTube for years. DeFranco and his supporters worry the move could have implications for all YouTube creators. -Vox
Some prominent YouTubers seem to be changing their minds about YouTube’s “new” policy to demonetize various videos.
We’ve viewed some of the material posted over the weekend or Monday and Tuesday and we are reminded of prisoners who contract Stockholm Syndrome – a condition that impels them to justify even the most unreasonable abuses of their captors.
On the other hand, we detect a level of shock from YouTube execs as well. After emphasizing this past week that videos containing obscenities, have sexual references or are “controversial” are subject to demonization, it seems they were not quite prepared for the backlash.
And now, perhaps, has come the response. Notably, various prominent YouTubers seem suddenly to be making videos that minimize the impact of the current YouTube policy and claim that people can appeal demonization with considerable success. It’s not clear if they are speaking on behalf of YouTube or extemporaneously – perhaps a combination of both.
We learn, for instance, that YouTube’s recent moves at censorship are purely business motivated. Advertisers don’t want to be placed near obscene, violent or controversial material.
This latter point doesn’t make much sense however since YouTube has been accepting advertising for years without seeming conflict or complaints.
