One can hear a lot of hue and cry around YouTube these days. The reason- YouTube’s new demonetization scheme according to which the world’s biggest video site is preemptively flagging some videos that have “non-advertising-friendly content.”

Seasoned ‘Tuber Philip DeFranco was one of the high-profile to speak out, likening YouTube’s actions to “censoring” people by hitting them in the wallet.

However, YouTube has refused any claims about policy change. While YouTubers have just started to complain that video about depression, videos with swearing, videos with controversial subject matter, and so on are being denied the opportunity to make money from ads, YouTube says the only thing that has changed is the way users are notified.

The company issued a statement which says, “While our policy of demonetizing videos due to advertiser-friendly concerns hasn’t changed, we’ve recently improved the notification and appeal process to ensure better communication to our creators.”

YouTube’s policies indicate a number of reasons ads may not be displayed on videos: “Sexually suggestive content including partial nudity and sexual humor, violence, including displays of serious injury and events related to violent extremism, inappropriate language including harassment, profanity and vulgar language, promotion of drugs and regulated substances, including selling, use and abuse of such items and controversial or sensitive subjects and events, including subjects related to war, political conflicts, natural disasters and tragedies even if graphic imagery is not shown”.

DeFranco, however doesn’t concur with them.

According to him, appealing demonetization decisions may be easier now; however, YouTube has also accidentally revealed that clandestine demonetization has been going on for some time.

Don't underestimate how quickly things can change on the internet. Digg used to be the big thing, and now it's done and dusted. Same with Fark. If somebody can come up with a video sharing site that's better than youtube, *and then a bunch of kids flock to it*, it'll be the new big thing, and youtube will be relegated to grandma and grandpa posting their "the excema spread to my dick today" daily retardvlogs that nobody watches.

I don't think youtube actually owns any of that content. so content producers could move all their shit somewhere else. many probably like the revenue that google produces though, but that probably won't stop a replacement from coming up

Eh, I still doubt it. Youtube has so many full albums of music, cross related with every last website and is so ubiquitous now that it is basically Facebook. Google tried to fuck Facebook and failed. The only thing that even pushes YT any is Twitch and that is only because of instant donations. If Google did subscriptions/donations in their hangouts, Twitch would vanish nearly overnight. People hate fucking with Patreon and given how Adsense and all works, I have no idea why Google doesn't update Youtube to do what Twitch does.

Won't ever happen. Antitrust is a commie outdated fucked up Union thing to the average person. Google does literally everything for you and people gladly bend over backwards for their services. There is also no "evidence" that Google actively tries to "stop" competitors which is what people think Antitrust means now.

So unlikely for anyone to move away. The big channels are the only ones making money and those precious sub bases are far too important to jump ship. The big people make a brand new 2017 Corvette a month or more. Missing that income for a month is insane and not something voluntarily done. The small time people would probably move away because trust me, we make like 93 cents a month but the image of the big boys or god forbid, an endorsement is a dream to chase.

Not sure about Google owning the content. They technically probably can "hold" a content if submitted but there is SO MUCH copyright fraud on Youtube that it literally is impossible because Google would own every piece of media made in the 19th century forward. Google doesn't defend any copyrights though. They only flag shit by bots. Those bots are only working on content made by people with enough money to sue. Any audio clip of Adele will get nuked before even uploaded. Your 6 years old band you put blood sweat and tears into plus all your income won't ever get removed or added to the bots flagging registry. You don't have the money to sue Google. Only companies like Century media can.

Every company does this though. Google fucking sucks but every company with an entire firm hired or more does the s…

261 here. Yeah the bullshit with megaupload was pretty blatant. I actually don't watch big channels, I download most Yt videos for later watching and I use AdBlock. So do these content producers get affected either way from me? Because if they get pissed from yts new content policing or the subscriber shit they might walk.

I suspect this works the same as other media and it's being executed the same way--build consumer base, undermine independence, homogenize production/distribution, now you have the means by the balls. I think the ad system is where any changes will actually occur. Google ads suck anyway, I never buy those products and they often get my region and language wrong

>The CIA has concluded that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help President-elect Donald Trump win the White House, and not just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, a senior U.S. official said on Friday.

>U.S. intelligence agencies have assessed that as the 2016 presidential campaign drew on, Russian government officials devoted increasing attention to assisting Donald Trump's effort to win the election, the U.S. official familiar with the finding told Reuters on Friday night on condition of anonymity.

>Citing U.S. officials briefed on the matter, the Washington Post reported on Friday that intelligence agencies had identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including the chairman of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, to WikiLeaks.

This article is in Dutch, and if it will get mentioned on English news websites, it probably will take a while, so I'm just posting the Dutch article.

Basically, this NGO called Fair Medicine wants to start producing medicines without any profit on it, in order to undermine the control pharmaceutical companies have on the Dutch/European drugs market.

The Dutch minister of healthcare will put 2,6 million euros into this NGO, and while she knows this won't change the game in the short term, she will use this as leverage to break the grip the pharmaceutical industry has on the flow of medicines.

Afaik no evidence of vehicles with red-cross markings carrying weapons have been provided. We have basically confirmed that the Turks are gun-running and everyone knows the Saudis (and probably the Qataris) are doing it too. I wonder if the KSA is actually arming ISIS itself or if they stick to al-Nusra and other "moderate" rebels.

Anyway, Russia still can't fight a major war so far from it's borders (the only ones who can do that currently are the yanks) so the regional balance of power favors Turkey. Frankly though Erdogan and Putin deserve each other.

>ITT Educational Services Inc. has abruptly shut down its eponymous for-profit technical schools, closing more than 130 campuses and leaving as many as 40,000 students stranded in one of the largest college closures in American history.

>The company blamed the Department of Education for its downfall in a statement released on Tuesday. Last month, the feds demanded the company produce an additional $153 million in collateral—nearly double its $78 million in cash on hand—to cover possible losses that the government might incur if the company were to suddenly fail.

>ITT said it terminated the "overwhelming majority" of its more than 8,000 employees.

>"We believe the government's action was inappropriate and unconstitutional, however, with the ITT Technical Institutes ceasing operations, it will now likely rest on other parties to understand these reprehensible actions and to take action to attempt to prevent this from happening again," the company said.

If that last part is to be believed, not only was no one on earth willing to put up $150M but the company is unlikely to pursue a civil suit against the government. Kind of a weird thing to signal.

>A jury signaled here on Friday that it was within a single vote of convicting a white former police officer in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man.

>But confusion reigned in the courtroom as the jury wavered about whether it was hopelessly deadlocked about the killing, which was recorded on video and became a symbol of the nation’s heated debate about race and policing.

>Over the misgivings of a defense lawyer, Judge Clifton B. Newman, who presided over a four-week trial, did not declare a mistrial in the case of the former officer, Michael T. Slager, who shot and killed Walter L. Scott in North Charleston, S.C., on April 4, 2015. Jurors had been deliberating for about 48 hours and, by day’s end, had decided to resume their discussions on Monday.

>Yet Friday’s proceedings, before a crowded courtroom that alternated between focused and flummoxed, were a remarkable display of the divisions in one of the country’s most closely watched cases. It has been seen as a bellwether for whether video evidence could lead to a rare conviction of a law enforcement officer in an on-duty killing.

>“I cannot in good conscience consider a guilty verdict,” an unidentified juror wrote in a letter to Judge Newman, who read it aloud in court. The juror added that the panel “may never reach a unanimous decision.”

>After Scott was shot and had dropped to the ground, Slager approached him, repeatedly instructed him to place his hands behind his back, and handcuffed him, leaving him face down on the ground. The video shows that Slager ran back toward where the initial scuffle occurred and picked something up off the ground. Moments later, he dropped the object, the Taser, beside Scott's body.

Yeah, because you know the poor in America, the outcasts, aren't already at war. They don't see their friends die in stabbings, shootings, they don't see people they love waste away and die from hard drugs, they don't see people go to prison in the double digits, they don't get sent to jails for not having $, black churches don't get shot up, peaceful protesters don't get attacked by armored vehicles and weapons of war.

That is all sarcasm if you don't get it. The war has clearly already started, and half of the people suffering it's harshest consequences currently aren't responsible for it. The people who have allowed more and more of this to continue, even cheered it on are. It's horrible that it's like this, but people there are people who really have risked their lives for much less in America. Consider this, people fucking kill each other of money in the hundreds in this country. You think that class of people is afraid to confront people who want them dead and stuck in this cycle?

If anything, to deny what is happening, and to be neutral makes you have an ivory tower. This is a harsh reality some of us have to deal with. Do you feel like you'll get killed by a cop in a traffic stop, or hit in crossfire every other day?

They're right. This isn't sudden. There's steady incidents that are continuous under this economic and political system. People are being shot in the back for fleeing from a bunch of jackboots that work to put people behind bars for the rich. Companies are legit paying private mercenaries that have been to warzones to attack peaceful protesters in the name of oil companies. The war has already begun my friend. It's just a matter of are you willing to risk all of your personal freedoms, your life, to make sure it's not one sided? Are you willing to take day to day small actions with your friends, that attack the system? Because there is no sudden event that you're going to be able to act upon. The struggle, the class war, is every damn, fucking day. Most people who decide they want to go against the grain of the system in history are forgotten, tarnished, and brutalized. The struggle is thankless, but ah who really wants to watch the world pass before them, and die in silence, isolated, never having lifted a finger to side with the oppressed - as far as I'm concerned this is basically death.
