Know why Youtube Has Started Demonetising Videos Related to Coronavirus

YouTube 'demonetising' videos on coronavirus: Report

At a time when the world is reeling under the threat of coronavirus, Google-owned YouTube has reportedly started demonetising videos about the deadly virus and creators are not too happy about it.

“For today’s video, I won’t be directly commenting on the recent health related news because A, I am not a health care professional, and B, I don’t need my video demonetized,” said Linus Sebastian, host of Linus Tech Tips, according to a report in The Verge on Wednesday.

The popular video sharing platform has demonetised videos about sensitive subjects in the past as well.

The company’s advertising guidelines state that sensitive topics — usually a recent event with a “loss of life, typically as a result of a pre-planned malicious attack” — are normally not suitable for advertising.

These videos are allowed to stay on the platform; they just can’t make money from YouTube’s built-in ad service, the report added.
