I think this is a really bad move for them. They are trying to make more money but driving away alot of people who currently use youtube. Just means that more people will be using soundcloud and other sites like that to showcase their music.

Giving a chance to soundcloud and other sites charge more for their services.

This will only effect partnered accounts I believe (channels that earn revenue)

It's inventible, there will be no free streaming services in years to come. Everything will be on subscription.

Youtube is rubbish for listening to music anyway. Get sick of all the damn adverts. It's all about soundcloud now.

This isn't what YouTube is all about, it was started as a free streaming service

Turned into fuckin JewTube since Google took it over anyway

I hope it doesn't have a bad effect on drum & bass labels, but if it all goes ahead, it'd be hard not seeing it. Shame

it is illegal for publicly-traded companies to do things for free. corporations have a responsibility to their shareholders to make money.

if you think you're getting things for free you just don't realize the value of what you're providing

That's fair enough; and this has mostly always been done through advertising. And I provide all these websites, which I use for free, with my acceptance of their cookies policies - so they can try and spam me with more adverts of the garms/kicks/cheeky hotel away with the mrs I was just looking at. Fair enough

But is it really necessary trying to squeeze more money out of people who have effectively gained a lot of support for said website, whilst also using it as a platform to promote a small business which supports a successful underground scene? Na mate, that's fackin greedy
