YouTube has announced an update in their terms of services with effect starting from the 1st of June 2021. The three updates are detailed below.
Facial recognition restrictions: The Terms of Service already state that you cannot collect any information that might identify a person without their permission. While this has always included facial recognition information, the new Terms make that explicitly clear.
YouTube’s right to monetize: YouTube has the right to monetize all content on the platform and ads may appear on videos from channels not in the YouTube Partner Program.
Royalty payments and tax withholding: For creators entitled to revenue payments, such payments will be treated as royalties from a U.S. tax perspective and Google will withhold taxes where required by law.
Which of these three major updates is necessary?
Security is everything while on the internet. I think the "Facial Recognition Restrictions" policy will help combat so many security risks. What do you think?
