To all confused people, the YouTube just lost a lawsuit against the FCC about the United States COPPA law. Essentially any channel that tries to advertise to children with a monetized video will gets an approximately $40,000 fine per video if they are found in violation. This is causing issues with a lot of channels because they cannot show their content and make money from it.

I am currently out right now so the details are not one-hundred percent correct, but I will update them later.

EDIT: Youtube was found to be in violation of the United States' Children's Online Policy Act (COPPA) by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). For context this is the same law that was enforced on JV (and is on JV2) that did not allow children under thirteen to register and be registered on the site without their parents permission. If someone said they were under thirteen (even as a joke), they would get banned until their thirteenth birthday.

Youtube cannot have collect data and target ads for children under thirteen. This causes content creators specializing in videos for younger people to lose revenue because targeted ads bring more revenue than general ads. There are also other restrictions on videos aimed at children. Creators have to specifically mark if one of their videos is aimed at children. If they do not do this and the FTC deems them in violation, the FTC will give them a fine of (so far seeing) $42,350 per video in violation.

There is also the issue of what constitutes "videos aimed at children" and content creators are worrying about if they will get affected (for example, gaming channels) (I think Camer is falling under this instant since Youtube can likely say PR2 videos are aimed at children).

Here is an article on this and a video from Youtube describing how content creators must comply:

weird that you would go through the effort of backing up and deleting all your youtube videos rather than ticking a box...

It's only a big deal if you use youtube as a revenue stream. If you don't, it's pretty easy to check some boxes. I don't think a PR2 race counts as "geared toward children" anyway.

I feel like this will be another one of those things that sounds scary, but isn't. Everyone freaked out about no more net neutrality, but I haven't noticed anything change.

The rules are too vague for my liking
I'd rather be better safe than sorry and see the outcome of this

Honestly the SAR videos were the big problem (although PR2 a bit too with lasers and swords), so I just decided safest is remove all the vids from YT. I have them if I ever wanted to reupload them.

I think that is the issue. There has not been any clear indication of what is "Geared toward children." There is a guy I kind of watch who does videos on Madden NFL Football games (An "'E' for Everyone" rating) and does not have anything that would be above "PG". He is contemplating leaving Youtube on this because of the risk of fines and I think he said this screws up the *Almighty* Youtube Algorithm (Essentially the thing that allows Youtube to display his videos when people look for a "Madden video").

I am not too well versed on this because I am not a content creator, but I am just sharing what content creators are worrying about.

Fair enough, but just because the game is geared towards children doesn't mean the video is. I hope they realize that.

I dunno, I feel like this is one of those things that'll get blown out of proportion.

I have a feeling one of 3 things will happen

1) This backfires massively in the FTC's face and they're forced to either change the demands
2) YT dies
3) YT lives on, but only for the larger creators, more sites will pop up for smaller creators (whether they'd succeed or not, or also get done by the FTC who knows)
