World’s biggest video platform YouTube has declared new terms of services recently, causing distress among various content creators.
Under the section “Account Suspension & Termination”, there is a clause that states:
“YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account’s access to all or part of the Service if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable.”.
By issuing the new terms, YouTube is allowed to delete any channel or account that it deems unprofitable, and it affects viewers as well (hence the Google account). So far, YouTube has not officially addressed the means of this clause’s execution.
