Subnetwork policy

A subnetwork exists when a MCN provides direct or indirect access of its rollup tool to unaffiliated third parties, who act on behalf of a separate brand or company, in exchange for compensation or some consideration.

Subnetworks are not permitted, and accounts that violate this policy will be subject to penalties.  YouTube reserves the right to modify this policy at any point in time.

YouTube believes that there are two primary issues with subnetworks:

  1. They grant unaccountable third parties access to sensitive tools.
  2. They cause creator confusion in the marketplace when creators believe they are signing up with one brand but are actually rolled up under another company.
