Youtube Revised its Terms and Conditions – Youtube Updates

Youtube is now updating the YouTube Terms of Service (‘Terms’) to clarify their terms and provide transparency to their users. The Terms were similarly updated in the United States in November 2020. These changes shouldn’t significantly alter your access or use of the YouTube service.

YouTube Updates Terms of Service

A summary of the changes:

  • Facial recognition restrictions: The Terms of Service already state that you cannot collect any information that might identify a person without their permission. While this has always included facial recognition information, the new Terms make that explicitly clear.
  • YouTube’s right to monetize: YouTube has the right to monetize all content on the platform, and ads may appear on videos from channels, not in the YouTube Partner Programme.
  • Royalty payments and tax withholding: For creators entitled to revenue payments, such payments will be treated as royalties from a US tax perspective, and Google will withhold taxes where required by law.

These YouTube terms also include:
