YouTube Pushes Video Owners to Join Subscription Service

What happens if content creators decide to leave rather than join YouTube's subscription service?

The key change: YouTube "partners" آ— video owners who make money from ads on their YouTube clips آ— will need to let YouTube put their clips in the ad-free service, too. If they don’t, YouTube will make it nearly impossible for a casual visitor to find the videos. It will classify the clips as "private," which means the only people who can see them will be those preselected by the video owner.
