If you missed today's stream, I ended it on a rant about YouTube being complete ass, and why I decided to not stream on there and move to Twitch... YouTube, every single year changes the requirements for their partnership program, and every year makes it impossible for small channels to make money. They claim to be out there for smaller creators, but they fail to recognise that their content ID system is the thing that's broken.
They change it every year because small channels have been ripping off larger channels content and earning money on it. However, if their content ID system actually WORKED, then this wouldn't be an issue. For example... My song I put up in October, I fully had the rights to use under the agreement that I DID NOT MONETIZE IT. I agreed to these terms and that's why you've never seen an ad on my video for it. However, some shit channel tried to claim copyright on it using the CONTENT ID SYSTEM, and it WENT THROUGH, and they temporarily had ads on the video and could claim money from it. Once I disputed this and showed proof of someone else actually owning the rights and I had a license for it, they quickly dropped their content ID claim.
It is literally THIS SIMPLE for people to try and steal money from content creators, and YT thinks the way for them to beat this is to make it harder for smaller channels. To prove my point, the channel that claimed copyright on me has 31k subs, and each video has barely a few hundred views.
All YouTube needs to do is fix their content ID system instead of changing the requirements every year. People will still viewbot and sub bot their channels to surpass this. It only hurts the smaller people.
This is why I don't like using YouTube as a platform for content creation anymore. Rant, over.
