If evil was a person then Nyashinski is the personification, several YouTubers could lose their source of income thanks to the rapper.
YouTubers are crying foul after Nyashinski slapped them with copyright strike that put them in danger of losing their YouTube channels.
Several YouTubers attended the rapper’s concert Shin City over the weekend and subsequently posted videos on YouTube.
However, Nyashinski slapped the YouTubers with copyright strikes. Several content creators contacted blogger Edgar Obare complaining about what the rapper did to them.
YouTube has two strikes – copyright claim and copyright strike.
A copyright claim is someone asserting that the a YouTuber has used someone else’s content, whether that be a video clip, an image, or a piece of audio.
A claim does not adversely affect YouTube channel. The rights holder can claim the revenue on the video if the YouTuber used their content. The copyright holder can place ads on the video to generate that revenue.
The copyright holder can restrict the video in some countries or regions. Copyright claims only apply to the videos flagged and not the entire channel. A claim can be proven false depending upon if the YouTuber really own the content that is being claimed by someone else.
However, a copyright strike is much more serious for a YouTube creator and their channel can be suspended for repeated copyright offenses.
A copyright strike is issued to a creator if they’ve uploaded something within their video that they do not own the rights to.
The copyright holder has the right to remove that video from YouTube altogether, which means it’s blocked everywhere and the ability to generate any further ad revenue is shut down.
If a YouTuber receive a copyright strike, they won’t be able to monetize their videos on their channel. They also won’t be able to live stream from their account.
If YouTubers receive 3 copyright strikes, their YouTube channel will be terminated and they will also be banned from creating another one. Copyright strikes expire after 3 months.
