via:博客园     time:2018/2/11 12:30:42     readed:360


Last month, YouTube's Logan & middot; Paul uploaded a disturbing video of a dead body in a suicide forest in Japan, so YouTube must take a tough penalty against Logan. After the company deleted his video from its platform, the company cut off its relationship with YouTuber and announced a revision and review of its content.

In a blog post, YouTube said excessive content can hurt not only those people, but also other content creators in the form of lost revenue, affecting their livelihoods. As a result, YouTube will crack down on content creators who post videos that are harmful to the entire community. These include content of hate and violence against a group, cruelty, incitement to the values ​​of others, and mischief content.

Although YouTube has launched attacks on these channels, it will now further combat those violating creators by removing the offending channels from the lucrative Google Preferred Platforms and suspending or canceling creators YouTube original rights. The company will also suspend the sources of advertising revenue from harmful channels and remove it from the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). Finally, it may also choose to delete the features that a channel shows in the recommendations section or the YouTube homepage.

Youtube said that most creators are convinced that freedom of speech, the vast majority of people follow the guiding principles, and understand that they are part of a large, influential and interrelated community. But we also know that we have a responsibility to protect the entire community of creators, viewers, and advertisers from these rare, often destructive, injuries. YouTube's move was appreciated by many influential YouTubers such as Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) and Sean McLeough (Jacksepticeye), who commended the company for being transparent and taking strict measures against creators of violent content.
