Coronavirus, which emerged in Wuhan, China, has become one of the most talked about topics in a short time. Especially on social media, many sharing and informing about Coronavirus was made. However, channels that prepare content related to Corona virus on YouTube will not be able to earn income from these videos due to the company policy. Last month, the YouTube channel Insider made a video about the Coronavirus. As of February 11, YouTube announced that it is treating the Coronavirus as a sensitive issue. All videos shot about the Corona virus on YouTube will not be able to receive ads until the next announcement, and therefore will not be able to earn revenue from these videos.

Google to allow some coronavirus ads after broad ban

Article | April 2, 2020

Google will lift a broad ban on coronavirus advertisements, phasing in some advertisers with a priority on those working directly on the pandemic. The company started blocking coronavirus-related ads in January, placing them under its "sensitive events policy," which blocks ads that exploit people during events such as natural disasters, public health emergencies or tragedies by advertising fake or hoarded products. Axios first reported that Google's head of industry, Mark Beatty, sent a memo to clients that it will start to run some coronavirus ads. Advertisements to run this week will include public service announcements from "government entities, hospitals, medical providers, and NGOs who want to get relevant information out to the public," according to the memo.

Article | April 2, 2020

Proving that its privacy mission isn’t just talk, Google has taken its first major step towards blocking third-party cookies. In its latest policy update, Chrome 80 will stop supporting cross-site sharing, unless cookies are flagged in line with the SameSite internet standard. On the surface, this move is about online security and clarity. As long as technology vendors and publishers label cookies accurately, tracking and targeted ads can keep running. But with semi-restricted cookie sharing now the default for those who fail to flag, it seems like this will be a sizeable nail in the cookie coffin.

Taxing Internet Ads Could Raise Lots of Money, but Doubts Persist

Article | April 2, 2020

Leading Maryland lawmakers seeking a way to help pay for a $4 billion, 10-year education plan came up with what they consider an innovative idea of where to get the cash: deep-pocketed internet companies. The Democratic proposal would tax Facebook and Google for every ad the companies run on the computer screens of Maryland residents visiting their sites. If passed, the plan would make the Old Line State the first in the nation to raise revenue by taxing online advertising. “Massive technology corporations have ballooned in size and influence over the last two decades,” wrote Maryland Senate President Bill Ferguson, a Democrat, in an email to Stateline. “This legislation starts to make sure that these corporations pay their fair share in contributing to building our state's core educational institutions.”
