YouTube’s reviewing mistake could cost Shane Dawson thousands of dollars

The Internet Creators Guild, an organization dedicated to fighting for creators’ rights, noted in 2016 that “erroneous de-monetization will always result in significant lost revenue.” Plus, demonetized videos that aren’t seen as family-friendly may not be recommended. All of this means that Dawson lost out on a ton of revenue within those first 12 hours. Even if Dawson was making the average return on display ads ($2 per every thousand views), that means he lost out on $14,000 within those 12 hours. Dawson is likely earning even more than $2 per 1,000 views because of his popularity and influence on the platform, though. – Julia Alexander, The Verge » http://bit.ly/2WxpjMr
