Accounts Can Be Deleted if 'No Longer Commercially Viable — YouTube

  • Creators are freaking out over YouTube's new terms of service which state that the company can delete an account if it determines the user is

"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".

I'm personally not sure if that's the case. It appears in the "Account Suspension & Termination" section under the "Terminations by YouTube for Service Changes" subheader. Primarily, how does YouTube decide if an account is commercially viable or not.

One of the most controversial changes added is that YouTube could ban users' accounts that use some type of ads blocker.

A thread on Reddit about YouTube's new terms of service has garnered more than 50,000 upvotes and over 3,000 comments in less than a day. Owing to the possible subjective interpretations of the broad "commercially viable" wording, YouTube creators are anxious that the company will make use of the new policy to terminate accounts it doesn't "like for any reason". While YouTube was once the only obvious place for burgeoning video stars to make their mark, Facebook's wide reach and willingness to has the social networking site into an attractive video platform.

Another Twitter user exclaimed, "We're officially at the point where if you don't make YouTube enough money, they might restrict or outright terminate your channel".

The economy was somewhat volatile in the first half of this year when Britain was originally supposed to leave the European Union.

YouTube's new terms of service has some users and content creators very anxious that the company could delete their account.

What this means: This means accounts of YouTubers, who aren't making enough money nor generating enough views, may be deleted. For example, an account that starts creating white supremacist content can certainly be deemed as "no longer commercially viable".

Although the fine print sounds scary, YouTube told PCMag that nothing has actually changed. While we often ignore these notices, YouTube's recent update is worrying content creators. A direct outcome of that lawsuit is that creators may now have to go through each one of their videos to declare if there's a chance a minor may view it, with a significant fine if an AI believes you are incorrect. This makes it a much friendlier platform alongside YouTube Kids.

The "no longer commercially viable" wording has the vlogging crowd anxious that YouTube is empowering itself to shut down niche video channels that mainstream advertisers don't like.
