    There are similar problems happening with musicians who can't make a living because a huge chunk of the revenue is taken since there's no longer money to be made from record sales. David Wilcock said there's an orchestrated attack on all the arts as if we're in an anti-renaissance period. He's one of the top writers and he said it amounts to minimum wage. There's a choreographed erosion of all facets of our existence.

    It's true, the common theme in these kinds of things seems to be, Huge corporation with limitless money and therefore can last longer in legal battles, takes down and bullies smaller creators, And really that just a corporation being able to afford to keep the battle going longer than the average person can fight. So it's truly like bullying.

    It's a sad state the world is in brother.

    This also flows down to live bands... live bands get very little to perform because they are told they won’t get any exposure without basically working for free. Minimum wage is about what it works out to be. They are also told if they don’t pack the house they won’t be called back.
    So the band has to do all the advertising.

    Bands used to get a percentage of the house. Now they often only get a flat rate.

    It seems YouTube is being more intrusive and aggressive with their advertising lately and I think its intentional to try to get more paying subscribers...Just about everything you click is a minimum of 2 video ads and I've been seeing a lot less of the skip ads button...

    I'm already paying 10 dollars a month for the YouTube Music version of their services, I'm not paying anymore than that to YouTube (Google)...

    Yeah, YouTube is not yet making profit. Its more something that Google is doing for community.
