If like me, you use YouTube for more than just hilarious cat videos, You'll know there's some interesting and well-made content on the site. It's pretty much the defacto choice when looking for free (but sometimes sponsored), content. There's a variety of 'content creators' on the site, some more popular than others, and the more followers you have as a YouTuber, the greater the potential to earn money through ad revenue. For YouTuber's with large followings, the weekly revenue can amount to substantial figures, some are so popular that YouTube is their career; their "9 to 5" and rely on the money they make from the platform, to continue making content.
But YouTube creators have discovered some of their videos have started to be unmonetized in the past 48 hours, meaning that no ad revenue would be made by the content creator on that particular video. On further inspection, it was found that a recent change in policy was the reason for these videos being unmonetized and YouTube and it's community; aren't happy about the changes.
