Last month, it was hinted that the company was working on this policy as Susan Wojcicki, its CEO, said that YouTube was seeking partnership with firms that were willing to put their advertisements alongside some edgy videos, which means creators of this kind content can have more chances to earn revenue. So now, those like marketers who want to advertise a movie with R rate will have more opportunities to find a suitable audience.

However, even with this change rolled out, the policies on the kind of content that can have ads. The videos showing too much violence still have no way to monetize.

YouTube has a hard job of ensuring those posting extremist, violent, and hateful videos do not get the chance to monetize their channels. However, at the same time, it also has to make sure that those who posted violence-related videos can somehow ear revenue from creating more content.
