YouTube cuts off adverts for channels with under 10,000 views | Cara McGoogan – The Telegraph

YouTube is cracking down on users that post extremist and pirated videos by cutting off adverts for accounts with under 10,000 viewers.

The Google-owned video website will block advertising from appearing on channels that have not reached the threshold, in an attempt to stop people profiting from stolen and inappropriate content.

It comes after major brands pulled business from YouTube over fears they were funding terrorism and illegal activity due to Google’s failure to police its videos.

The British Government as well as Tesco, Royal Bank of Scotland and McDonald’s removed thier adverts from YouTube after they were found to appear alongside extremist, homophobic and anti-Semitic content.
