@JGoldman10,
Because no one cares about the smaller channels posting videos. They only care if the channel has a large enough audience.

Same reason why there are so many channels still post unauthorized movie clips despite it being copyright infringement.

Millions of videos are posted online every day. It would be impossible to catch every one that is breaking policies.

@Rebelofnj,
There are a lot of pornographic, semipornographic and borderline pornographic videos and other NSFW videos being uploaded on YouTube and other video-sharing sites (Dailymotion, Metacafe, etc.) and on other online platforms that aren't porn sites.

I was just curious about this.

I thought YouTube was against pornographic semipornographic and borderline pornographic videos being uploaded on their site.

@Rebelofnj,
What do you consider to be a large enough audience?

@Rebelofnj,
There's an indie animator named Flashgitz who has a channel on YouTube with a large following. His cartoon, "Racist Mario", which he uploaded in a video on his YouTube channel, generated 141 million views.

That video was not age-restricted and/or made COPPA-compliant. It should have been.

The cartoon was made for mature audiences.

@Rebelofnj,
Also, imposing disclaimers on one's videos on any video-sharing sites to comply with COPPA regulations isn't enough. If you just make a disclaimer that your videos aren't intended for kids without having any viewing restrictions put on them on any video-sharing sites kids can still easily access them.

I never even heard of that video until you brought it up.

You also still do not understand how COPPA works. Being COPPA compliant means the channel is labeled as kid friendly and the videos on it are kid friendly. It also means that the videos will appear on the YouTube Kids app, which is separate from the regular YouTube app.

This video is not labeled kid friendly, so it can have vulgar llanguage. If you consider it to be too offensive, you can always flag and report it.

@Rebelofnj,
By viewing restrictions I mean being required to sign in to view videos with mature content on video-sharing sites. Any videos not intended for kids. Any videos that are NSFW.

@Rebelofnj,
I thought to avoid getting in trouble with COPPA people are indicating whether or not their stuff is kid-friendly or not.

@Rebelofnj,
The video is laced with profanity, graphic violence, partial nudity and inappropriate sexual content.

@JGoldman10,
Then go and report the video.

I'm not going to do it because that would mean I would have watch the video and it will be appear in my watch history.

@Rebelofnj,
The video is marked as not being kid-friendly? I didn't notice.

@JGoldman10,
You can tell if the video is labeled kid friendly by
*comments are disabled
*video cannot be saved in playlists
*no merchandise selling under the video

Isn't this correct?

That doesnt mean too much. There are kid-friendly videos on video-sharing sites that people can comment under.

@JGoldman10,
The keyword is kid-friendly.

All videos marked as such have disabled. However, not every kid-friendly video is marked as such for any other reason.

For some reason, you are ignoring (again) the links I provided last month about the topic. How is it I know more about COPPA than you (aspiring creator) when I have no intention in posting any videos?

Because you have a PC, laptop, tablet or any kind of large appliance with internet access on it, I presume, and I'm stuck using a smartphone for the time being.

@JGoldman10,
I have only been using a smartphone for the last 3 months.

The only other large device I have with internet access is my Xbox One, and it is very clunky to use the web browser on it.
