    Default Youtube Account Revenue Restrictions

    "Due to several unhappy gaming companies as of January 2014, Googleplus Youtube Will receive 55% of all Add revenue and Donatings, it now requires 48 hour approval, due to youtubes TOU changes, "Pornographic or Otherwise, Nonsensical, Crude, Derogatory, Racist or Encouragement of negative outlook on companies or google plus will result in a suspension and possible youtube account closure" Twitch may be bought with google plus aswell, No more Youtube Fart videos or squirrels from catapaults "High end subscribers like Bajheera or swifty from the world of warcraft folk will be hit pretty hard with the advertising restrictions

    Looking for thoughts, Don't care if they are negative, enjoy the neat tidbit of info, Will post an article if needed.

    Out of interest, does anyone know what percentage cut youtube was receiving before, if it is getting 55% from Jan 2014?

    Wow, that's greedy. Plus, Google/Youtube can avoid paying tax by routing their income thru low tax jurisdictions. That means the extra 50% of ad income which was going to, say Australian citizens, and which they were paying tax on, will now be going to Google which pays jack all to the Oz govt.

    I foresee the popular youtube personalities evacuating to other less grabby video hosting sites and taking their subscribers with them.

    The problem is there probably isn't one that could cope with that amount of traffic.

    Have google actually made any profit since they bought YouTube? Every video people upload costs them and then there's the bandwidth.
