So I’m reviewing the new T/C for YouTube, and I see this gem:
License to YouTube
By providing Content to the Service, you grant to YouTube a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license to use that Content (including to reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display and perform it) in connection with the Service and YouTube’s (and its successors’ and Affiliates’) business, including for the purpose of promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service.
License to Other Users
You also grant each other user of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to access your Content through the Service, and to use that Content, including to reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display, and perform it, only as enabled by a feature of the Service (such as video playback or embeds). For clarity, this license does not grant any rights or permissions for a user to make use of your Content independent of the Service.
I don’t know how much of that is new, but I italicized the part that seems to deliver a knock0out blow to trolls who use the YouTube machinery to get other users’ content whacked.
Even so, there’s plenty of other weasel verbiage giving YouTube the option to whack your content, monetization or account for any reason or none whatsoever. But it would seem to shift the burden onto YouTube, and off of the anonymous or protected other user.
