Changes are coming to YouTube starting in early 2014; a tougher stance is being taken on those earning money from other people’s work. It will be hard to earn revenue without proof of permission from the copyright owner. The system of checking is going to be based on a “trust rating”; YouTube will flag videos violating the new guidelines, but if proof of permission is provided future videos from the same channel will be able to continue being uploaded and monetized with less likelihood of being flagged.
