With article 13 (now known as 17) passing in April. And now settlements with the FTC, YouTube is obviously under the microscope for the wild west of user media that forms a sizable chunk of the platform content.
More countries are lining up to implement similar laws so YouTube is forced to wield the wrecking ball and reinvent itself. All changes, herald cries of outrage from creators, countless of which will be impacted by this massive policy shift and update.
In the last couple of year’s, we have seen Peppa Pig Torture Videos, Fat Spiderman doing things with Princess Elsa and more.
Regulation and accountability are long overdue. YouTube, as always is the market leader. All other social platforms will follow suit and implement similar procedures.
We remain optimistic about the future of the BoodleBobs and for #OC Creators (Original Content Creators).
