YouTubers have to declare ads. Why doesn't anyone else?

26 107 Áhorf 2,6 m.

Around the world, there are regulations for "influencers". Those regulations make sure that if someone is paid to endorse a product, they have to declare that payment to the people watching. But why does no-one on TV, or film, or anywhere else have to do that?

    "Influencers have to declare sponsorships clearly and up-front. Why doesn't that apply to any other medium?" would have been a much more accurate title, but alas, ISpulse titles have to be short and catchy!

    Tom - your presentation has got me thinking, which I suspect was your goal. Your points are well taken, and well supported. While I too would prefer a set of universal media constraints - not necessarily *just* for product placements and concealed ads, I wonder whether the time and effort involved would be considered well invested. The technologies of media are changed so quickly, that "rules" set up today, simply may not apply at a future time when said technologies have evolved to effectively conceal such advertising. At 70 now, I've lived through enough revolutions, both social and technological, to know that they will continue to happen, often when we least expect or understand what's actually happening. When I was in school, we were taught to use slide rules for physics and math classes. At the time, handheld calculators were just showing up in the market - bulky battery operated affairs that varied greatly, depending on the brand and the cost. However, we were not permitted to use them in those classes! It violated school policies, as well as the teachers' preferences. Today in similar educational systems, each student is expected to have a high end cell phone, capable of doing tasks undreamed back in those days! What sort of technical achievements might the next generation (or two) be expected to have, and what sort of new tasks will be part of their daily lives? Rather than just advertising on TV, or on a ISpulse video, I'd expect to see non-stop feeds of advertising directed at whatever the next cell phones are, and that those same ads will be seamlessly incorporated into most (or all) of the functions of said devices. Because such ad-streams are not broadcast over traditional TV channels, will they be subject to the same sorts of considerations? Probably not - so will one of the all-too-soon-to-arrive-future careers be in generating or possibly regulating that sort of streaming advertising directed at everyone's individual personal media device? I hope that you continue to consider all the possibilities, as well as the potential ramifications of the various forms of advertising that are surely coming down the pike!

    In many countries there must be inserts like "this video contains product placement", but, well, it's at the end and not at the beginning and not during the video. And sometimes it reads something like this: "the moderator wears clothing from ...", which is a way of sponsoring and declaring the sponsoring in one message. Well, that's not optimal. And in big cinema movies there is product placement all over the place, for example the cars and laptops in Bond movies - and they mention it at the end, I'm sure, but who reads these tons of texts at the end of big movies, well I might do to see if I catch something interesting. It's really shocking how many people have been working for one movie.

    It's all about control. If you build your own ham radio, and start broadcasting; you can say whatever you like. The only way to stop you, is for someone to come break down your door. So the government won't usually bother you unless there is a really good reason. It's one of the benefits of having a well armed population that likes throwing tea into the harbors. :)

    I've seen this arguement before, years ago. And from that I know why, at least here in America, TV and Movies don't have to do the same thing online media personal does. The answer, of course, is money. If Shows and Movies had to disclaim, up front, they were advertising. Then many people wouldn't watch those movies and shows anymore. So both A, the show/movie wouldn't make any money from Viewers. But also B, the companies who paid for the Advert wouldn't make any money or influence either and have ended up wasting money, and gained nothing. Those companies giving adverts, don't want that. They want to make money, they want their products known. And they used their money to make sure the FCC and other Government Entities don't ever make Laws restricting them.

    @16:00 i dont think thats the rationale. I think its actually a different issue altogether when it comes to the online spaces like ISpulse. Its because a contributor who uploads and also has some kind of advert content in what they upload are actually in a small way becoming a sub-platform to the platform, in this case ISpulse. This sets up a direct competition relationship at a certain level. I think this is the reason why these are treated differently. the other entertainment outlets dont take the shape of an advertising company in the way Google/alphabet, or any of these companies that sell your info to advertisers do. not making a case that its right, just pointing out something.

    Here in Australia, we have a government broadcaster similar to the BBC called the ABC.

I have always wondered whether it is advertising for a radio station to play music, that a listener may choose to purchase.

    I don't think it makes a difference for a viewer whether the product in a video is paid promotion or honest positive (unpaid) endorsement of an influencer. That makes things even more complicated. What about paid review which results in negative opinion? Same goes for product placement- what if people simply like cliffs behind you at the end of the video and will want to travel there? How is it different for a vierwer if a local tourism agency paid you for filming there to promote the area?

    I was really surprised when I watched Captain America: Civil War on Disney+ and they mentioned “paid promotion” in the warnings for the movie because of Cap stealing and driving (obviously with a lingering shot on the logo) a truck (I genuinely cant remember what company it was, I think either Ford or Toyota). Yet on Netflix when watching Quantico, where for multiple whole episodes they only referred to a truck the main character stole and was driving as “the blue Tacoma”, and had many lingering shots of the logo or the Tacoma name on the side, yet no warning was there. The enforcement is clearly not consistent or is just entirely not there and for once in their life Disney decided to err on the side of good

    I think it's safe to say all forms of media that take money for advertising should be declaring it.. But I believe the main reason why social infuencers need to be extremely clear about it, is because an overwhelmingly large portion of their audience is comprised of very impressionable children.. Call me a liar... This Social Media age has become an advertising monster.. Right now you'd be hard pressed to find a child anywhere in the world that isn't "Influenced" by someone on the internet.. Most children have been raised by them... I know it's good money and the majority of them have worked hard to get where they are, but honestly, being a "Social Influencer" has to be one of the grossest jobs in history.. They are all one notch above predators handing out candy from a van... And the companies paying them all to advertise are no better. Big corporations have been trying like hell to find a way to advertise to kids forever.. Now they have it.. That's why you have a job, Tom Scott. Sleep well.

    Well I liked the video because I believe it to be a very good argument but I disagree for a couple reasons. I believe that people should be able to advertise whatever they want and they don’t have to say anything about them gaining anything from it but I do believe this should apply to anyone not just super rich people and corporations. Now it’s up to the people who watch tv and entertainment to do their due diligence and figure out if what they want to buy is truly worth it. It is my opinion that people should take responsibility for their own well being and their own money.

    If a person is PAID to PROMOTE an item, then yes, they should declare it. Otherwise, If they bought a product with their own money, then they shouldn't have to declare it. I buy Mt Dew once in a while, but most of the time, I make sweet tea. If I happen to have a bottle of Mt Dew in my video, it's because I BOUGHT IT with my OWN money. Should not have to be declared. It's really simple. ISpulse is getting too big and needs the snot kicked out of them by the creators. Now if a youtuber is a reviewer, and they receive an item for a review, they should at least say it was sent to them for review, and then they should give an HONEST review of it. If the company sends an item for a positive review, then the reviewer should send it back.

    Since money can distort the public forum so much, isn't the evil in question rather obvious? By allowing more affluent entities greater influence, you allow them an extent of control that may be rather small but is often rather large (see corporate media) and is distinctively undemocratic. In Germany for example, threatening the democratic, Liberal order of the state is grounds for an organisation to be banned (see the KPD which was forbidden in 1956). The USA have similarly if not more so cracked down on Communists during the Cold War, so they should have similar rules in place that have already been applied in the past.

    Im probably wrong, but maybe the rule for a social media influencer to disclose ads on yt is for younger audience, I would be inclined to believe "adults" would know what an ad is and that the influencer probably doesn't care about the product or game or whatever. Idk

    I think you shouldn't have to disclose anything, but the double standard is troublesome.

    The UK restrictions on political advertising only restrain challengers, since officeholders or famous people need only appear at functions looking good, to get tons of free publicity, to boost their personal brand. Politicians know this and use it everywhere.

    I'm sad that the scene from Kung Pow isn't here. It's the best scene of advertisement that's not an advertisement clearly played as a joke.

    Funny, but just before you played the 30 Rock clip, I got a ISpulse ad interrupting. I was going to be really impressed.

    Question: can drug companies market directly to patients in the UK like they do here in the USA?

      No. Not prescription meds, just OTC. We did start seeing Viagra ads but they were more advertising the online pharmacy service supplying it, I think.
