Reminder that youtubers are not good guys or regular working joes. They're massively greedy cunts, most of whom either make six figures or made millions before making six figures now, and bitch about the fact their income dropped rather than appreciating how lucky they've been.

Why should they appreciate that which they see as their divine right?

Calling it now, within the next 10 years Kahntent creators will demand that ad revenue is a right in the same way some people say housing or medical care is a right.

More like youtube will instead make you a I9 contractor and give you an controlled rate per view where you have to answer you managers periodically for "quality control".

I was thinking more along the lines of a Government funded UBI. Somehow the INs would manage to dip into the public coffers.

I can see it now. A tug at your heart strings News documentary about the downtrodden content creators. Interviews with gray haired INs of the past in their tiny, filthy, roach motel apartment.

"Listen! I spent the last 30 years of my life creating quality kahntent for the internet and I've got nothing to show for it! Influencers like me are the backbone of the American economy. My quality kahntent has contributed more to GDP and Tax revenue that any stupid plumber or electrician ever will. They get paid for their work, why don't I? It's not fair!"

So remember viewers, be sure to call your congressman today and tell him to vote "Yes" on the 2028 Internet Nobody economic revitalization act.

I think a more likely scenario is that YouTube scraps monetisation entirely and the content creators who can't get media jobs will either go on welfare or else find themselves continually explaining to prospective employers why they have these huge, ten year gaps in their work history. Or both.

Already happening. Heard the dumb shit about the Youtuber Union? Absolute clown show.

That's what I'm thinking. Turn it completely off and they can all go fuck themselves. T-Series and music videos make YT more money than all those IN fuckwits combined. Let's go back to the good old times when people made videos because they wanted to show something interesting and not because it's lucrative to do so.

Probably this. That or they make getting monetization about as difficult a process as being greenlit for a syndicated television show. I think it's much more likely for youtube to heavily restrict monetization privileges in future than to scrap it. They make a lot of money off shitty youtubers who upload a lot and get tons of views, so they want to incentivize those people to keep churning out the shit kahntent. But they don't need the 100,000,000 hanger-on channels that want to be the Next Big Thing but will never make it.

So really, the ideal fix is to stop paying everyone except the top end of youtubers. I'm talking about the youtubers that fit the venn diagram of "uploads a lot" and "videos consistently get high views." That's the shit youtube wants to see a lot more of. The rest is a dead weight on the network and they would probably prefer to remove monetization from those other channels and run ads on them anyway. Use the ad revenue generated by unmonetized channels to help subsidize the cost of hosting those shit videos nobody watches.

I know this is at least plausible because youtube already does this with any video that gets claimed for kahntent ID. They can run ads and they take the money without giving the youtuber any of it. They get their cut and the original IP owner/claimant takes a cut. All they need to do is apply this principle to all videos/channels that aren't making them big money. Bonus points because, if they keep the big channels monetized and raking in big money, those big channels will continue to be good little cucks and not complain, since youtubers are greedy as fuck and have no morality. :lol:

Your idea is so plausible I'm surprised they haven't done it already.
What are they waiting for? More pressure to break up big tech?

This.
For one, I've never even heard of T-Series until the whole Pewdiepie vs. T-Series thing that I was out of the loop for because I didn't care started. I was surprised that not only was it around for 30+ years, but also made it's own YouTube channel pretty much at the start of YouTube.
And two, for even for some of the Youtubers who do seem like they are having fun with and care about the kahntent they create have Paymetons.
