After watching AngryJoe's rant, where he placed almost all of the blame on Youtube for these ContentID issues, I figured now is the best time to make a follow-up to my video. Youtube is not solely to blame for this, the MCNs that mismanaged / exploited people are, they got greedy, and Youtube is now attempting to correct things.
Youtubers denied "Managed" status deserve the option to leave their networks, as the relationship has changed, and it is of no fault of the partners themselves. This is primarily the fault of the top three networks that skimmed up masses of channels without any oversight - Maker (also Polaris, RPM), Machinima, and Fullscreen.
Note: Youtube channels that are managed do not have to deal with ContentID, the reason channels are getting hit is because they've now been converted to "Affiliate" status.
For those not familiar with my channel, I am Ohmwrecker, also known as MaskedGamer on Youtube, and I produce a variety of gaming content for YouTube on a near daily basis. This includes let's plays (also known as "Ohm Plays", first impressions, quick looks, reviews, previews, guides, gameplay, walkthroughs, and playthroughs of everything from new releases, to my favorite classic games, as well as the latest and greatest from the world of indie gaming.
