Community Guidelines: YouTube’s Rules of the Road (Part 1)


Hey!
I’m Kelly from YouTube. Ever scratch your head about
all the various guidelines YouTube has? Ever wonder “What’s the difference
between Community Guidelines Copyright, YPP,
and Advertiser-friendly guidelines?” Have you ever had a video removed
by YouTube and you weren’t sure why? Well stick around, because
in this series of three short videos we’ll sort it all out for you. As a YouTube Creator, there are a few different sets
of guidelines and policies that are important to understand. If you just want to post videos, it’s important to know
about our YouTube Community Guidelines and basic Copyright law. If you want to make money on YouTube, there are a few more things
you should understand. Like our YouTube Partner Program policies
and our Advertiser-friendly guidelines. Ok, so let’s start with
YouTube’s Community Guidelines; a set of common-sense rules for
what is and isn’t allowed on our platform. These are mostly rules you’d expect, like “Don’t harass others
or post ultra-violent videos” but they also include
some YouTube-specific rules you might not have thought of like not posting
a bunch of repetitive comments. So definitely take time to review them. And remember, the Community Guidelines
apply to everything you do on YouTube: posting videos, comments, thumbnails…
you name it. If you do violate
our Community Guidelines, you’ll get a warning
the first time it happens. After that, if it happens again, you’ll receive
a Community Guidelines strike. But don’t worry,
strikes expire after 90 days and over 90% of Creators
never get more than 1 strike. That said, if you get 3 strikes
in a 90-day period, you’re out and your account will be terminated. If you do post something
that crosses the line, we’ll send you an email letting you know and also give you information
on how to appeal if you think a mistake was made. But, what about using
someone else’s music in your video? Would that give you
a Community Guidelines strike? No.
But it could get you a Copyright strike. Oh. So they’re different from
Community Guidelines? Yeah. You mind if I sit? Thanks. Hey. I’m Matt. And in part two of this three-part series
I’ll give you an overview of Copyright. Click this endscreen to come on over.
