    Updates to YouTube Policies for Fan Channels

    Posted: 23 Jun 2023

    Hi creators,

    We’re making some updates to our guidelines on impersonation that could impact you if you run a fan channel. If you operate a fan channel, you have to make it obvious in your channel name or handle that your channel doesn't represent the original creator, artist or entity. To learn more about changing your channel name or handle, please visit our Help Center article on managing your channel’s basic information.

    This update will take effect August 21, 2023.

    For example, channels claiming to be a 'fan account', but actually posing as another's channel and reuploading their content would not be allowed. Another example would be channels with the same name and avatar or banner as another channel, with the only difference being a space inserted into the name or a zero replacing the letter O, would not be allowed.

    This update will help genuine fan channels know exactly how you can celebrate your favorite creators, while also protecting original creators from content and channels that are impersonating them.

    This update should also ensure that viewers won’t be misled by the channels they interact with and follow, and creators won’t have their name and likeness used for malicious purposes.
