It’s amazing that people on this website aren’t fighting mad about this yet!!!
It’s all over YouTube and it’s hurting content creators! Some are thinking of quitting while others are going to cuss more so they can not get sued!
What am I talking about?? COPPA and the FTC
If you think FCC was bad you GOT to hear about the FTC! Here’s a video made Hy Bijuu Mike that goes into more detail about it: https://youtu.be/pdSP2_tEVVk
But basically YouTube got sued for kids watching content that looked cool to them. They sued YouTube because kids online information was copied and stored onto YouTube’s servers or something. the FTC sued them because that takes away kid’s online privacy.
Because YouTube lost a few dollars out of their billions they made a new rule (kind of like their demonitization rule) where if you make videos like video games, toy reviews, animations, etc. You have to say that it’s kid friendly. If you don’t do that or make it CRAZY obvious that it’s for adults then you will get fined around 4300 dollars for it. It wouldn’t be bad if the categories were easy to distinguish, but the rules aren’t clear at AL!!! You can see it on the video above.
And if you DO make your content kid-friendly? You lose comments, likes, and ad revenue. So basically you lose all your money and communication!
It’s just crazy and it’s really scaring a lot of people on YouTube. Bijuu Mike explains how we can fix this. Go to his video and help!!!!
We can’t let the government take away hard-workers money!
