YouTube Removing Videos If You Don't Sign Its Red Subscription Deal

I guess if you are making money off YouTube videos, you have to follow YouTube's rules. It's as simple as that. Thanks to cageymaru for the link.

YouTube made its top video creators an offer they literally couldn’t refuse, or they’d have their content disappear. Today YouTube confirmed that any "partner" creator who earns a cut of ad revenue but doesn’t agree to sign its revenue share deal for its new YouTube Red $9.99 ad-free subscription will have their videos hidden from public view on both the ad-supported and ad-free tiers. That includes videos by popular comedians, musicians, game commentators, and DIY instructors, though not the average person that uploads clips.
