On November 18, YouTube updated the Terms of service. The update is short, but it does have one important change that might fly under a lot of radars because we face it, who’s reading the terms of service. Under the second point, the terminology states: “Ads can now appear on videos from non-YouTube Partner Program (YPP) channels, and we will gradually begin placing ads on brand-safe videos.”

This means that unlike before, when ads only display videos that are monetized by their creators, YouTube will now show ads before a video regardless of whether or not the creator is a YouTube partner. Not only does this push more potentially annoying ads your way, it also strips YouTubers of the decision to display an ad in the first place or not – often creators who make money through Patreon rather than rely on bad YouTube ad earnings Reputation It is a point to disable ads for its viewers Thanks for their support.
