Some five years, Youtube gave internet entrepreneurs a big boost when they rolled wide open their partner program. It was very accommodating as just anyone had the avenue to get some cash, without any restricting protocols, anyone could start raking in his cash. This in a way was well advantageous to YouTube as grew monstrously into one of the largest biggest video platform we had in the Internet. But while YouTube ate sumptuously from this, others suffered especially as copyrights were solidly violated, someone would just open an account only to upload videos which he doesn’t have ownership rights to. Many YouTube creators suffered from this pilfering as well as some large record labels and movie studios.
This is changing now as YouTube is declaring war on those killing the groove by illegally multiplying content on the giant video platform. In an announcement Youtube has twisted the rules. With the policy adjustment we have in place now, as a creator you will not be able to turn on monetization not till you have recorded 10,000 lifetime views on their channel. From what Youtube is looking at, by leaving the ceiling at 10,000 lifetime views, it will allow YouTube enough to confirm the legitimacy of the channel. Yet you can’t say 10000 views is too much to put off original creators who want to come on board.
“In a few weeks, we’ll also be adding a review process for new creators who apply to be in the YouTube Partner Program. After a creator hits 10k lifetime views on their channel, we’ll review their activity against our policies,” wrote Ariel Bardin, YouTube’s VP of product management, in a blog post published. “If everything looks good, we’ll bring this channel into YPP and begin serving ads against their content. Together these new thresholds will help ensure revenue only flows to creators who are playing by the rules.”
Big time thumbs up for encouraging originality!
