YouTube Will 'Frustrate' Some Users With Ads So They Pay for Music

Get ready to start seeing more local ads on YouTube

YouTube quietly updated its policy on its website on Monday, according to Bloomberg, which first reported the new rules.

"This also includes instructions on how to convert a firearm to automatic or simulated automatic firing capabilities".

It's unclear whether Apple would be comfortable letting users livestream to YouTube directly from their app. Apple doesn't now have its own competing live streaming service, but Google does still offer a competing piece of software in nearly every other area, raising questions about how much collaboration Apple would want to engage in.

The new restrictions invite users to "flag" gun-related videos for removal.

"Their discriminatory policy would make at least half of the videos that I have produced prohibited", notes The VSO Gun Channel, which as of Tuesday had 129,000 subscribers.

YouTube's decision to tighten restrictions on gun videos comes with heightened tension in the USA gun debate. He promises lots of videos, playlists and more.

"YouTube doesn't allow content that encourages or promotes violence or unsafe acts that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death." said a letter from Youtube to Spike's Tactical that the gun manufacturer posted on Facebook.

In February, shortly after the Parkland, Florida, shooting that claimed 17 lives and reinvigorated the debate about gun control, YouTube attempted to clamp down on conspiracy videos.

YouTube's latest rules change comes in the wake of a series of hard-hitting decisions by major corporations, such as Delta Air Lines and vehicle rental company Hertz, to cut ties with gun manufacturers and the National Rifle Association.

"Well, since we've melted some snowflakes on YouTube and got banned, might as well set IG and FB on fire!", Spike's wrote on Facebook, where it has over 111,000 followers, referring to the social network and its Instagram app.

"This is without question an attack on free speech", said Kit Cope, marketing director of Spike's Tactical.
