According to a report from Motherboard, YouTube is further cracking down on gun videos where according to an updated policy, videos that sell firearms or provide links to sites that sell firearms will be banned.
The new rules are scheduled to go into effect in April.
However, a Wednesday morning search revealed that there are still scores of videos that teach viewers how to modify their guns, including videos that give step-by-step instructions on how to convert weapons to have "automatic or simulated automatic firing capabilities", which YouTube said it prohibits.
Russian Federation reportedly helped Venezuela launch its petro cryptocurrency to skirt United States sanctions
At this time , the Venezuelan economy faces hyperinflation, along with the potential collapse of its currency. Venezuela's state-backed cryptocurrency petro has been mired in controversy right from the beginning.
The addition would come as a welcome surprise for a host of video bloggers who would earlier need to install an encoder verified by YouTube Live.
People will no longer be able to watch or post videos that show how to assemble guns and certain gun-related accessories, including bump stocks and high capacity magazines. Taking a less than mature approach, in a caption above a screenshot of YouTube's message, Spike's Tactical writes on their Facebook page, "The Liberal Left will slowly chip away at our freedoms and erode our rights, and the first step is to squelch our voice". He promises lots of videos, playlists and more. "We feel strongly that after they get done going after guns, they'll continue to ban and erase content that falls in line with conservative ideologies like they have already demonstrated with the deletion of anti-abortion videos and the like". YouTube's CEO, Susan Wojcicki, responded last week by announcing that the company would begin supplementing such videos with annotations from Wikipedia about the topics in question. Most of those efforts predate Cohen, who joined YouTube in 2016 after about 30 years in the record business, including stints as a road manager for Run-DMC and a senior executive at Warner Music Group.
