FAST FIVE: YouTube To Delete All Accounts That Aren't "Commercially Viable" Starting Dec. 10th

Published by on

What this means is that YouTube content creators who've built their entire livelihoods around the platform are going to need a backup option in the event that they end up being terminated. One such option is Brighteon.com, which you can sign up for here.

And there will likely be no way for targeted YouTube users to prove otherwise.

“The terms could be a way for YouTube to remove channels that promote hate speech, conspiracy theories, or harmful messages whose content isn't extreme enough to warrant an outright ban, as these are unlikely to be commercially viable,” writes Rob Thubron for Techspot, illustrating this point.

However, thanks to workarounds like Patreon, many of these channels are still up and running, despite YouTube's best efforts to financially destroy them.

“In a few years, YouTube will only allow creators that have a minimum of 100K followers within 90 days of launch and they'll have to be a member of the local communist party.” Exercise your free speech, without commercial censorship, at Brighteon.com.
