In August, YouTube rolled out new monetization icons as an attempt to provide more transparency into the process: a green dollar sign means fully monetized; yellow means it’s eligible to earn money through YouTube Red views but will have limited or no ads; and a dollar sign with a slash through it means it’s completely ineligible for revenue sharing. YouTube also introduced an appeals process if creators think their videos have been misclassified. – Todd Spangler, Variety http://ift.tt/2xvCgJx
