Any Negatives Lawsuits, Complaints etc?
Yes, there are and have been many lawsuits filed against either YouTube or Google. Some are quite famous, and others are about losing their channel and content without prior notice. There is also a lawsuit about mental health consequences all of which are too detailed to mention here.
None of the lawsuits are really for anything illegal that YouTube has done that we can see. Some are about civil rights and others are about how YouTube has infringed on copyrights.
Also, there are too many negatives about this website that can be mentioned here as some may be frivolous while others may be legitimate complaints
Is YouTube Legitimate?
Again, the answer is in the positive. YouTube is a legitimate company even though it is owned by Google. It is possible to make money and another article would be needed to explain how you are paid by Google once your senior account starts making any money.
The problem comes in when YouTube members have different views than Google employees or ownership. You have to be careful to navigate through those waters with great care. It will take time to build up an audience and make any money- just like any other business you try.
Don’t let the lawsuits fool you, there are still plenty of members who do make money even if they disagree with Google.
