Have you started earning from YouTube? If you are not, YouTube has the rights to terminate your YouTube channel account. Waking up and in the morning and opening the YouTube website there were a new Terms of Service which we need to review.
According to YouTube, this new Terms of Service will be starting to take effect on the 10th of December 2019. There are many terms which didn’t get YouTube creators attention except for one. Especially, new YouTubers surely be shocked after reading the new Terms of Service.
“YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account’s access to all or part of the service if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the service to you is no longer commercially viable.”
This means YouTube has all the rights to terminate your YouTube channel if it feels that your channel is not earning well. Apart from that, from the YouTube new Terms of Service also has stated that:
“Content is the responsibility of the person or entity that provides it to the Service. YouTube is under no obligation to host or serve Content. If you see any Content you believe does not comply with this Agreement, including by violating the Community Guidelines or the law, you can report it to us.”
If YouTube finds that your content is violating its policies, surely it will remove the video from YouTube. According to TheVerge, this issue is because of a clash between one of its Vox Media writer Carlos Maza and a YouTuber named Steven Crowder. After this clash only, YouTube has made it enforce its policies. As a rules violation, YouTube has demonetised Steven Crowder offending videos on its platform.
In a nutshell, if you are new to the world of YouTube content creation make sure you start earning after achieving the requirements. And most importantly, stop posting offending videos as now YouTube has all the rights to decide whether the video can exist in the platform.
