Hello new subscribers! Since I can tell from my comments that many of you are YouTube Content Creators, it is important that you note the following:

DISCUSSION IS PROVIDED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND IS NOT TO BE CONSTRUED AS LEGAL ADVICE. INDIVIDUALS INTERESTED IN THE LEGAL TOPICS DISCUSSED IN THIS VIDEO SHOULD CONSULT WITH THEIR OWN COUNSEL.

And also...it's definitely not made for kids. :)

I know, I know, legal disclaimers and all, but they are important as every given person will have different circumstances and I can't advise folks directly on their own legal matters without a formal relationship. Thanks for watching!


YouTube has finally responded (a bit) to questions raised both on this channel and elsewhere in respect of their FTC settlement and ways they could be making content creator's lives a bit easier.

But did they give creators enough to go on?

The answers are...complex...in Virtual Legality.
