well when you don't make the money you want at one job what do people normally do? find something else right? sounds pretty straight forward to me. I did not like my first job at Macdonalds, so I left and found a better job at Burger King instead and was way happier, plus i did not have to clean toilets anymore. people have such sense of entitlements now a days, let it go will ya?

Do you even understand what is happening? They like what they're doing. Many of them get paid well for what they're doing. Now, due to a questionable implementation of U.S. government legislation, YouTube is going to make it harder for them to attract followers and funding. If the government said people in your profession had to be trained and licensed and the industry unilaterally decided that training/licensing would cost you $20,000 a year would you "let it go"?

Passive citizens such as yourself who just roll over and take it are any government's dream.

First, this is not the government - this is YouTube's interpretation of how to implement a government regulation. Second, protests against government regulation, proposed or otherwise, certainly do work. Look up "Clipper chip" and SOPA for two examples. My guess in this case is that the FCC will issue some "guidance" that will let Youtube cover its behind while leaving most channel owners unaffected.
