"A$3 s always, context matters, so some videos could remain up because they discuss topics like pending legislation, aim to condemn or expose hate, or provide analysis of current events", YouTube said.
YouTube announced on Wednesday that it will suspend monetization for conservative commentator Steven Crowder, who has nearly 4 million subscribers, thus preventing him from generating revenue from the advertisements in his videos.
YouTube also said it would restrict channels from making money off of videos if they are found to "repeatedly brush up against our hate speech policies". "In 2017, we introduced a tougher stance towards videos with supremacist content, including limiting recommendations and features like comments and the ability to share the video", it said, adding that the step dramatically reduced views to these videos, on average 80 per cent.
YouTube is one of many companies that has given its price a rainbow-themed makeover to present strengthen for LGBT rights - but, below the shiny veneer, a row has erupted over how the video-sharing assign enforces its hang abominate-speech policies.
Following the New Zealand mosque attacks in Christchurch, videos with clips of the shooting were widely uploaded to YouTube, with their authors celebrating the indiscriminate killing of Muslim worshipers and glorifying the perpetrator's extremist ideology.
According to YouTube, accounts can be suspended for comments users publish on the site. ".As an open platform, it's crucial for us to allow everyone-from creators to journalists to late-night TV hosts-to express their opinions w/in the scope of our policies".

The Nokia 2 .2 comes with a single 13MP resolution snapper at the rear, clubbed with an f/2.2 aperture lens as well an LED flash. In addition to two major OS upgrades, the Nokia smartphone will also receive monthly security updates for up to three years.
YouTube identified several types of videos that would no longer be allowed on the platform.
The policy applied to Crowder's comedy channel because its "pattern of egregious actions has harmed the broader community", YouTube said.
Crowder will be able to reinstate monetization once he addresses "all relevant issues with the channel", such as videos that violate its policies, and "offensive merchandise".
But today, in a blog post, the company announced that it is changing its community guidelines to ban videos promoting the superiority of any group as a justification for discrimination against others based on their age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status.
Happily, as Variety reports, YouTube made a decision to do something about Crowder's channel after all, demonetizing his channel and removing it from the YouTube Partner Program. Such moves have been lauded by some, criticized by others, saying the companies are walking a thin line between protecting the public versus the freedom of speech. Holocaust denial is also banned. The company also wants to clamp down on misleading videos and promote those that are more "authoritative".
