Youtube Agreement Update

– General updates for better readability: The company claims that while the terms of use may be a legal document, it will be easier for users to understand. You have reorganized some sections (by .B. Account Suspension and Termination) and reformulated others (.B. Modification of this Agreement). “YouTube serves ads in different areas of its platform, including before and sometimes during videos, on the homepage footprint, and in various search results,” Says Leong. “This update shows that they also have the right to show ads in vendor videos or on channels that are too small to qualify for their affiliate program. And in such cases, the full benefit of ad sales goes to YouTube until the channel reaches the level to qualify for paying partner status and get a share. “YouTube will be able to run ads in videos created by all creators who aren`t involved in the platform`s partner program — without giving them some of the money. As of June 1, the video platform will have the right to monetize most of the content on its website in accordance with the updated Global Terms of Service. It will also ban the collection of personal data via facial recognition and change the way it pays creators. Here`s what marketers need to know about the changes. YouTube will update the Terms of Service shortly.

However, if we don`t reach an agreement by Friday, Disney`s own channels will no longer be available on YouTube TV and we`ll reduce our $15 monthly price from $64.99 to $49.99 (while keeping that content off our platform). We are pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with Disney to return their content to YouTube TV while receiving a prize of $64.99/month for our members. We`ve already started restoring access to Disney networks like ESPN and FX, including their live and on-demand content, as well as all previous footage in your library. We will also turn on local ABC channels during the day. At YouTube, we regularly update our Terms of Service to ensure that they are clear and easy to understand and that they meet the needs of our partners, advertisers and viewers. This isn`t the first time this year that Google has found itself in a deadlock with a media company over distribution. In the fall, Google`s agreement with NBCUniversal`s cable networks and local NBC stations expired.

The companies were able to quickly reach a new agreement. A similar disagreement with Roku over the terms of distribution of the YouTube and YouTube TV apps was settled this month. Since we promised a $15 discount while Disney content remained outside the platform, we will continue to credit a one-time credit for all affected members. For active members who have not yet received this $15 discount on their monthly bill, you will automatically receive a one-time credit on your next bill with no action required. For members who have been affected and have begun the termination process, we would be happy to welcome you back. Visit tv.youtube.com/membership and click “Add” to re-enroll the basic plan in your membership. If you continue your membership before losing access, we will still consider the one-time balance of $15 on your bill. We will update this website with more details shortly. We`re now in negotiations with Disney to continue distributing their content on YouTube TV so you can continue watching everything from your favorite teams on ESPN to The Bachelor to Good Morning America. Our agreement expires on Friday, December 17 and we have not yet been able to reach a fair agreement, so we wanted to give you a quick overview so that you can understand your decisions. We know this is frustrating news for our customers and not what we wanted. We will continue discussions with Disney to defend you in the hope of restoring your content to YouTube TV.

In the meantime, we will soon update this website with the latest updates, including affected channels, other ways to continue enjoying some of the Disney content on The Disney Bundle, information about our price reduction, as well as any other questions you may have about this situation. The changes, introduced in the U.S. in November, create new privacy regulations for users, introduce a new right for the platform to monetize content from independent creators, and update the company`s tax framework for creators` income. We appreciate Disney`s partnership and will share any other updates as we get them. We apologize for the disruption and thank you for your patience as we continue to negotiate on your behalf. We also appreciate Disney`s partnership and willingness to work towards an agreement. Users will soon need to make sure that they read YouTube`s updated terms of service as well as Google`s privacy policy and apply them to their YouTube videos. YouTube will update its terms of service starting January 5. The company will provide “greater transparency about how we develop, improve and update our service, including more detailed information about why we make changes and updates and the notice we provide.” We have been negotiating in good faith with Disney for several months. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we were not able to reach a fair agreement before our existing agreement expired and their channels are no longer available on YouTube TV. We will reduce our monthly price from $15 from $64.99 to $49.99, while this content will remain outside of our platform.

YouTube`s Terms of Service prohibit the collection of “information that could identify an individual without their permission.” While the company says it`s always been part of its policies, the changes include updated language that explicitly denounces the use of facial recognition software for the purpose of collecting personal information about users. With this update to our Terms of Use, we are clarifying the limits on the collection of facial recognition data. We also want to be transparent with you about the rights we take for the placement of advertisements in different areas of our platform. For example, we place ads in videos, in the homepage footprint, and in various search results. This update also clarifies how YouTube`s revenue payments are considered royalty payments from a U.S. tax perspective, and that Google withholds taxes on those payments as required by law. Changes to this update to the Terms of Service will not affect the monetization settings of your YouTube Partner Program (YPP). For YPP creators in the U.S., the revenue Google pays you will be considered a license payment from a U.S. tax perspective as of November 18, 2020. We will be making similar changes for creators outside the U.S. in 2021. Creators outside the U.S.

will be asked to provide U.S. tax information in AdSense in early 2021 to determine if their payments are subject to U.S. withholding taxes. .
