YouTube Partner Program changes its advertisement policies to combat abuse and copyright infringements

Responding to cases in which YouTube’s advertising model has been abused, or original content is re-uploaded by others to earn revenue, YouTube has introduced changes in its Partner Program. According to the new rules, there will be no advertisement on YouTube Partner Program videos until the channel attains 10,000 lifetime views. This allows YouTube to assemble sufficient information to determine the validity of the channel and its adherence to the company’s community guidelines and advertiser policies.
