YouTube Creators Will Receive Money Earned During Content ID Disputes After New Update

//cdn.themis-media.com/media/global/images/library/deriv/1317/1317482.jpg

YouTube also says they want Content ID to be used properly, and that they have "built a dedicated team to monitor" the service that "restricts feature access and even terminates a partner's access to Content ID tools" in the event of repeated abuse.

It's good to see YouTube responding to these concerns, and hopefully this will help address the issues that content creators have had with the service. Now if they'd just address the other suggestions that Shamus had [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/video-games/columns/experienced-points/16875-How-to-Fix-YouTube-s-Fair-Use-Problem].

I'm pretty sure Shamus wasn't the first to bring this up, but it's a first and very important step, to mitigate some of the ridiculous claims that youtubers face.

This solves one of the numerous major problems with YouTube at the moment and is definitely a step in the right direction, but only a step.

And lo and behold Jim just found a loophole around monetization on his videos.

Wonder how much this'll actually bring down the groups that exist entirely to make money off other people's videos with fake content claims that they expect people not to fight.

Now all we need is negative strikes for false claims and we're golden youtube.
What I would pay to see a big company like Nintendo or Sega get a strike against their channel right before a big event and be completely hamstrung because a false claim they submitted got overturned.

Too little too late. I am absolutely out of patience for Youtube. Fixing one of several chronic problems and calling it a day is not good enough.

Nice to see that they are at least trying, While it doesn't fix the system, it will at the very least make it far less crippling to content creators income streams to be on the receiving end of trolls.

This is definitely a step in the right direction. I only hope that more policy changes like this will follow. Too bad things had to get so ugly before Youtube bothered to act, though.

Well, considering the stink many prominent Youtubers created about this, #wheresthefairuse campaign etc etc ect, this was bound to happen.

Mainstream professional youtubers, who comment and use video game footage to support their video deserve the money and should be protected under fair use/review laws. Even Let's players = in specific situations, deserve to get the money.

I feel Youtube has had to do this considering a lot of tubers were moving to Patreon/subscription (jim Sterling, Channel Awesome, Yogscast) others who had it in place already had begun to move closer to it (Total Biscuit/ Jesse Cox/ Dodger etc etc) and it was starting to hurt content addition to youtube and also their income revenue itself.

So, yeah, feel this is "we have to do something..." as google WAS making money off the "official" channels for major companies etc.

Looks like WTFU actually accomplished something. I seem to remember that Nostalgia Critic suggested this very fix as a possible solution to one of Youtube's major problems for content creators and reviewers. He may not have been the first, but I would say that his WTFU campaign is a major reason for this change.

I'll share the sentiment of others. It's about damn time. Now, what about the other issues?

Good for them... though hopefully Youtube will keep to it, so the Copyright Trolls can't do any more harm... *Knocks on wood*

I don't really know what to think about Youtube. They've made a few positive steps like this over the last few years but then seem to randomly swing back in the other direction with no warning.

That's a loophole in Content ID, a different problem entirely
It also dose not let you get money from ads, it just stops anyone from getting money from ads.

Plenty of people have brought it up in various forms. Shamus just had an Escapist article on it so why not make a link of opportunity when it comes up? If ffronw has the "forum reflexes" feat, he could make as many links of opportunity a round as the relevant stat bonus.

This is a long time coming and now people can't penalize videos that espouse social or political views they disagree with quite so readily. Thwarting copyright trolls and making the system more balanced is welcome. Should have been done ages ago but better late than never in this particular case.

"YouTube will also says they want Content ID to be used properly, and that they have "built a dedicated team to monitor" the service that "restricts feature access and even terminates a partner's access to Content ID tools" in the event of repeated abuse."

I don't know if that's exactly what you were thinking, but it sounds like Youtube is working on tracking down the most blatant abuse. I don't know how successful they will be, especially in light of their existing track record, but this is all a solid move in the right direction. I just hope it actually sticks.
