YouTube Will Show Ads On Some Videos Without Permission or Sharing Revenue

And when all else fails, we can fuss about social media. Let’s pluck a random item from the ether: Google-owned YouTube has unilaterally changed its terms of service to let it run ads on some videos without sharing revenue with the creator. Most affected will be creators with too little volume to qualify for YouTube’s Partner Program. This could include B2B marketers with niche audiences, whose viewers might now see ads for competing products. How does that sound?
