Youtube Adds More Revenue Streams for Content Creators

Ever since the ad purge on Youtube several years back, content creators have been looking for other ways to generate income through their videos and streams. Some have already jumped ship to other platforms like Twitch and Patreon, while others were forced to change their content in order to comply with Youtube's policies.

So now, Youtube will be implementing new changes and adding some features that would allow creators on their site to maximize their profit potential. Perhaps one of the best changes they have announced is the one regarding copyright infringement, something that made such a big dent on many creators, both new and established alike.

It said copyright owners now have to specify the timestamp in the video their content appears, while creators will be able to use an updated version of YouTube Creator Studio to easily remove the portion of the content associated with the claim.
This helps to address situations where the Manual Claiming system was being used (or some would say abused) to claim very short — even only one-second long — pieces of content, or incidental content — like when a creator walks past a store that’s playing music, for example. The company had said in April it was looking to address this.

Agreed. Their "copyright" identification and dispute resolution process is absolutely flat out busted.
I knew someone who made a video and used music he had a license for. Youtube tagged it anyway and pulled it down. Turns out the music artist had uploaded his music to a couple of sites where you could license music. The problem was that one of the sites registered ALL music with Youtube as "theirs" even though they didn't actually own the music. Thus, if you didn't license the music from that one site, you were effectively banned from using that artists music.
So, the video guy just replaced the music, problem solved. The biggest loser here was the musician as they were no longer considered for any video that guy made. The whole ordeal also means the video maker is looking at moving to some other platform so they won't have to deal with that sort of thing.

It might be too little too late. Yes YouTube dominates the market but if it's not nimble enough to meet the needs of its content creators then it will find itself struggling to encourage new content.
