I hope he saved his millions. Starting in Jan 2020, all kid friendly videos will no longer be eliagable for monitization, or AD's. Comments will be turned off as well. There is a hefty fine by the FTC if a video is not marked that it is for children. and it is found to be for kids. Parents will no longer be able to exploit their children on YT and become rich. Look up Youtube COPPA.
