Google’s business prospects in Europe seem to grow bleaker all
the time.

The company faces multiple probes, fines, and new rules that
could raise costs and slice into revenue.
On Monday, Susan Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube, appealed for help from
the people who post clips to the web’s top video-sharing site.

In a blog post to YouTube’s creators, Wojcicki wrote that a new
piece of legislation in Europe threatens to “shut down the
ability of millions of people … to upload content to platforms
like YouTube,” and is “a threat to both your livelihood and your
ability to share your voice with the world … tell the world
through social media and your channel why the creator economy is
important and how this legislation will impact you.”
