Youtube Showing Ads on Non-Monetized Channels
I'm a little behind the time evidential. (November , 2020 behind)
It has recently just come to my attention that ads are showing on some of my Youtube video post now. Now I know that if I use copyright use-permission content like music or videos that I don't own inside my own work that the owners of said content "do" have the right to run ads on my videos. I'm ok with that. It's theirs, they kindly let me use it , so they should be compensated if they want to be.
BUT - if none of that applies Youtube can still run ads on your videos.
This is a real bummer to me for several reason;
- If I wanted ads in my videos I'd run them. I dont want ads. I dislike them.
- Even if I wanted to run ads I cant. I don't have enough subscribers. So Youtube is using MY content to make more money for them. I call BS. Leave my stuff alone.
- IMHO if you need the money that bad and resort to running ads in your videos either a) get a real just over broke gig or b)trade in crypto.
- Did I mention I dislike ads?
And this - I dont remember re-agreeing to new Terms and Services since I joined YT ( a long time ago)
“You grant to YouTube the right to monetize your Content on the Service (and such monetization may include displaying ads on or within Content or charging users a fee for access). This Agreement does not entitle you to any payments.”
What do you all think about Youtube's practices?
