Hi Mike Williamson,
Important changes that may impact your monetization and content discoverability are coming.  HAVE YOU COCKSUCKERS EVER PAID ANYONE ANYTHING?
Starting today, all creators are required to tell us if their content is made for kids in order to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and/or other applicable laws. To help you comply, we are introducing a new audience setting in YouTube Studio.  OR WHAT?
Depending on the amount of made for kids content on your channel, you can set your audience at either the channel level or the video level. For those who are setting at the channel level, it is just one click. I HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA WHAT MY LEVEL OR SETTINGS ARE. I UPLOAD SHIT FROM TIME TO TIME. PEOPLE LOOK AT IT FROM TIME TO TIME.
Potential Audience Settings
These changes are required as part of a settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and NY Attorney General, and will help you comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and/or other applicable laws.  COPPA.  HOW CLEVER. NOT.  YOU'RE THE CHANNEL, YOU HAVE THE LAWYERS.  COMPLY AWAY.  AND FUCK NEW YORK. THEY'RE FASCIST, ANTI-AMERICAN COCKSUCKERS ANYWAY.  VIOLATING THEIR RULES IS A MORAL DUTY. PS: I DON'T LIVE IN NEW YORK.
We know that these changes won’t be easy for some creators, and that this required change is going to take some time getting used to. But these are important steps to take to ensure compliance with the law.  YADDA YADDA GO FUCK YOURSELF.
Please read more below to understand your legal obligations and the impact these choices may have on your channel. SURE, IT'S BEEN HILARIOUS SO FAR.
What is changing?
Starting today, all creators are required to mark their content as made for kids or not made for kids in YouTube Studio. OR WHAT? BASED ON WHAT?
Starting in January: we will limit the data we collect on made for kids content to comply with the law. This means we will disable personalized ads on this content (which affects revenue for creators making content for kids), as well as certain features like comments, notifications and others. Note: You may see some small changes as we experiment and refine our systems over the next few months.  SO YOU'RE GOING TO REDUCE INCOME AND FUCK OVER PEOPLE WHO ARE ACTUALLY TRYING TO MAKE STUFF FOR KIDS. GEE, I WONDER WHAT THE OUTCOME OF THAT WILL BE?
For a list of affected features, go here.
Why is this happening?  BECAUSE THE TRUMP ASSMINISTRATION ARE AS BIG OF CUCKFAGS AS THE PREVIOUS DOZEN ADMINISTRATIONS.
These changes are required as part of a settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and NY Attorney General, and will help you comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and/or other applicable laws. SORRY, I WAS NOT PARTY TO THIS LAWSUIT OR CASE OR WHATEVER. ALSO, FIRST AMENDMENT, BITCHES.  I'LL POST WHAT I WANT. IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, TAKE IT DOWN.  IT'S YOUR PLATFORM, YOUR PROBLEM.
Regardless of your location, we are required to ask you to set your videos as made for kids if they fall into that category, please make these settings as soon as possible. NO. GO FUCK YOURSELF.
We’ll also use machine learning systems to help us find content that is clearly made for kids. But do not rely on our systems to set content for you -- like all automated systems, ours are not perfect. FINALLY, AN ACCURATE STATEMENT.
If you don’t set your content or if we detect error or abuse, we may set your audience for you. If you fail to set your content accurately you may face compliance issues with the FTC or other authorities, and we may take action on your YouTube account. THEN THERE'S NO ADVANTAGE FOR ME TO DO ANYTHING, IS THERE? I'LL LET YOU JUMP ON THAT GRENADE.
What is “made for kids” content?
We cannot provide specific legal advice, but according to the FTC’s guidance on COPPA, a video is child directed (which we call “made for kids”) if:
It is directed to children as the primary audience (e.g. videos for preschoolers).  MY PRESCHOOLERS WATCHED "BLAZING SADDLES," "THE MATRIX" AND "DEADPOOL." SO I MAY HAVE DIFFERENT CRITERIA AND A DIFFERENT BASELINE THAN YOU.
It is directed to children but children are a secondary audience (e.g. cartoon video that primarily targets teenagers but is also intended for younger kids).  UM, HAVE YOU ACTUALLY SEEN WHAT IS ON SOME KIDS' TV SHOWS?  ALSO, IF WE GO BACK TO 1967, "CAPTAIN SCARLET" SHOWED ASSASSINATIONS AND SUICIDE BOMBINGS ON A KIDS SHOW.  BUT THEN, MY GENERATION WEREN'T RAISED AS PUSSYFAGS.
Learn more about the factors that determine if your content is considered as made for kids here.  NAH.
We know this won’t be easy for some creators, and that this required change is going to take some getting used to. While we cannot provide legal advice, we are committed to helping you through this transition.  IF YOU CAN'T PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE, YOU'RE JUST SOME HELPFUL FRIEND ON THE INTERNET. THAT NEVER WORKS OUT WELL.
