YouTubesaid this week that it would tighten restrictions on some firearm videos, its latest policy announcement since coming under scrutiny following last month's mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla.
Speaking to Bloomberg at the South by Southwest music festival in Texas, Lyor Cohen, YouTube's global head of music and a veteran music industry executive, said the company wanted to "smoke out" users who can afford to pay a subscription. YouTube isn't planning on fully enforcing the new policies until next month.
While the move will be frustrating for the millions of users who use the platform as a free streaming alternative, it's a win for YouTube in terms of business. Music labels have long criticized the streaming service for not paying artists and record companies enough, and for sometimes hosting videos that are in violation of copyright.
A channel devoted to firearms, InRange TV, already stated through Facebook that it will begin uploading videos to an adult content website, PornHub.

"Cohen also adds that the increased ad volume, as well as the subscription fees, will help make YouTube a better partner with the music industry: "[Music companies] will appreciate, in time, the advertising. Especially worrisome is the potential for blocking educational content that serves an instructional and skill-building objective. 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".
The statement went on to say that such restrictions "impinge on the Second Amendment", and stifle "commercial free speech", which is protected under the Constitution.
