  • Never use music without their written permission or consent
  • Sometimes you need permission from all parties: songwriters, artists who created the melodies, record labels, etc and you also need to mention them in your content.

YouTube defines controversy as “topics that may be unsettling” and “the result of human tragedy.” Examples: Topics like Self Harm, Suicide, Abuding Anyone or Child abuse these all come under controversial topics.

YouTube has no incentive to monetize such content, it may disable your channel as well.
