YouTube creators blindsided by major network’s collapse

Networks like Defy work as a kind of collective talent agency for YouTube creators, securing ad deals and sponsorships with major companies for specific channels. A percentage of the AdSense revenue made on a video would also go to the network. It’s a common practice for networks that work with YouTube creators, but a potentially dangerous one when the network falls on hard times. – Julia Alexander, The Verge https://ift.tt/2G2MEkM
