YouTube Swears to Fix Controversial Monetization Policy
YouTube is revisiting its policy on the use of profanity in videos after facing backlash from creators. The company recently announced that it will be “making some adjustments” to its profanity policy, which was implemented in November. Under the current policy, ads are limited or removed on videos that contain swear words within the first 15 seconds or have frequent usage of profanity throughout. The policy also guarantees that videos with swearing in the first seven seconds or videos that are primarily about swearing will be completely demonetized.
