After major brands complained to YouTube that their ads appeared alongside contentious or "offensive" videos on the platform, the makers of the issue have finally taken up the issue.
However, at the taste of brands, many users and artists take these types of changes as a censorship of their work, because what is a safe space for some, is a great obstacle for others.
In September 2016, this platform announced new standards for content creators to participate in its monetization program. Among the limitations imposed are the emission of violent scenes, of a suggestive nature or the consumption or abuse of drugs and controlled substances.
Now YouTube has added another set of rules for those who want to make a profit through their videos, through three new categories of banned content for anyone who wants to upload their content to this platform. VidaPrimo tells you what they are, so that your videos are not affected by the new conditions:
Content that encourages discrimination, disparagement or humiliation of an individual or group of persons, on the basis of race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, disability, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or Another feature associated with systematic discrimination or marginalization.
Inappropriate use of family entertainment characters
Videos that use familiar characters from familiar environments, such as cartoons, to create satirical content associated with violent, sexual or inappropriate behavior, will not be able to access the YouTube monetization benefit.
Degrading and incendiary content
Content that seeks to be provocative, incendiary or degrading will also be excluded from the platform's advertising programs.
