YouTuber Fran Blanche is frustrated and burnt out by YouTube's increasingly opaque, arbitrary and restrictive management and moderation. At the same time as she is finally getting exposure it is becoming more difficult to maintain a sustainable income.
Most recently she has been trying to post digitized clips she has created from NASA archive footage laserdiscs (originally released in the public domain) only to have them immediately taken down by illegitimate automated copyright claims...
I've also seen some tech YouTubers establish LBRY channels, though that blockchain based platform has some issues of its own too.
Whatever means we have we should support the work of people like Fran!
