[READ CAREFULLY] See these new YouTube "Terms Of Service" update

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?
