Re: Thomas Lenz

Thomas Lenz was quoted on a YouTubers Union in Germany challenging Google to demand more insights on how the company decides whether some videos are taken down or demonetized. Lenz said the company gave a range of reactions when it handled similar situations in the past."If you've seen the different facets of these issues arise, you study those and how best to respond," said Lenz, referring to Google's management. "You're going to be more savvy with those issues."
