Keep YouTube Weird: How YouTube lost its soul — and may lose the creators that built it | PandoDaily
[ Another lesson not to build your business (model/revenue) on other peoples platforms and silos. It's ok for content distribution and discovery. But nothing else. You will worry every day what the owner will do next to increase shareholder value and market position. Entrepreneurs/Businesses need to mitigate risk (<< Objective No. 2 at least), this includes not to rely on other peoples Platform/TOS/backs. As if FB and Twitter wasn't a lesson.] The terms of the new agreement, while logical from YouTube’s perspective, place huge restrictions on where and how a musician can host their music on both YouTube and other platforms. And the bullying hasn’t stopped. Keating wrote that, if she refused to sign the new YouTube music services agreement, her channel, which has over a half a million views and close to 5,000 followers, would be blocked from the monetization portions of the platform. [... Conclusion ...] Think of [YouTube] as that promotional tool but nothing else. &! bit.ly/1D8wTMI

Disney Ponders the Biggest Big Media YouTube Bet Yet: Buying Maker Studios | Re/code
But that enthusiasm for YouTube investments has been tempered in the last year, as big players on Google’s video site have complained that they don’t make enough money there — either because YouTube’s ads aren’t lucrative enough, or because YouTube takes a big chunk of those dollars via revenue sharing deals, or both. Many big YouTube networks, such as Maker, are trying to find ways to make money outside of YouTube by distributing their videos to other hubs, including Microsoft’s Xbox, as well as building their own properties. And they are also trying to strike “integration” deals that don’t require them to share revenue with YouTube; Maker has recently signed what it says is a significant integration deal with Pepsi.

FUCK CONTENT ID | Dan Bull's YouTube diss track - YouTube
"Grey Suits without accountability made decisions." >> did every anybody get fired over this? >> if people submit gif - basically its a copyright infringement. ... but nobody makes money off gif or watches movies in gif form. double standard. + http://kotaku.com/clueless-youtube-copyright-bots-think-gta-sirens-are-a-1487190437 + http://kotaku.com/youtubes-copyright-crackdown-simple-answers-to-compli-1485999937 "It's a 90-second clip from it. But that's more than YouTube's database needs to see to know I've taken something I have no right to rebroadcast or republish and put it on their system. It doesn't really matter to me, though, as I'm not selling ads on it. But this is an example of the content match in action: The video's still up, still viewable, I'm not being sued and my channel hasn't been banned."
