YouTube has started rolling out adverts on all videos uploaded on its content-sharing platform, and won’t give creators any ad revenue until they get popular enough.

The Google-owned biz updated its terms of service to include a “right to monetize” clause: “You grant to YouTube the right to monetize your Content on the Service (and such monetization may include displaying ads on or within Content or charging users a fee for access). This Agreement does not entitle you to any payments,” it warned.

Previously, adverts were only hosted on videos made by creators that had enrolled in its YouTube Partner Program (YPP). The program allows YouTubers the ability to make money off their content, and they receive a cut from ad revenue, merchandising, and whenever users signed up for YouTube Premium and watched their videos.

But as of 18 November, the company started placing adverts on content produced from channels that aren’t part of the YPP. That means that the Silicon Valley giant can continue making money off your videos without giving you a single penny.

I'm not sure how all this will play out but we might start seeings ads on Bryan's videos soon.

I won't. I use uBlock Origin. I don't see no stinking ads nowhere. I've been ad-free for years and years.

Unless they block that too or they take the add-on down somehow, I'm not going back to that nonsense.
