🏆 Update March 10, 2021: Comments are now off. Thank you for all the great comments and feedback from the guitar community, creators, subscribers, and the wider YouTube audience. Many of the most recent comments were calling out channels and many of which do the right thing so I turned them off. Please do not hassle anyone.
This video was supposed to raise awareness of this issue and it has. Please do not harass channels or content creators. This video is aimed to give you the tools to know what to look for if there are no verbal or on-screen disclosures.
Whether you agree or disagree, the message is that creators need to disclose their relationships with companies by clicking the "Paid Promotion" Tab if this is not verbally or otherwise communicated in the video.
This video is not sponsored nor does it have any commercials.
Please support this video by dropping a comment and like! It's time to help change the mindset of some of the guitar channels and the guitar community as a whole.
This video is regarding the lack of disclosure that is going on in the guitar channel community. Product placement is everywhere and some major channels decide that the YouTube terms of service and local laws don't apply to them. Paid product promotion is running rampant and there's clearly a lot of channels (most of them are huge) that continue to do the wrong thing by their audience.
