YouTube Wants Content Creators To Appeal Demonetization, But It’s Not Always That Easy

Forbes did this great article by Erik Kain

In what some call the Age Of Adpocalypse, where in You Tube is pulling the ability of some content providers to make money off of there videos.

To quote the article…

The ‘Adpocalypse’ began over two separate incidents. The first was when it came to light that terrorist groups like Hezbollah were using YouTube to upload and monetize videos promoting terrorism.

The second occurred when Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg made a video that included men he had paid to hold signs that read ‘Death to all Jews.’ Kjellberg insisted his video was satirical in nature and has since apologized. But since his channel remains the largest on YouTube, and since he was partnered with Disney’s Maker Studios at the time and worked closely with YouTube Red on original content, the backlash was intense, and the reverberations were felt throughout the YouTube community.

Advertisers got spooked, call it a personal observation but even on videos where content makes don’t make a dime I have still seen ads.

Is there an easy solution or is You Tube going to drive away what draws people to the site away. Because how many cute cat videos can anyone stand?
