That's quite a bit different, surely you know that YouTube doesn't cost anything to use or upload to (free to use), so their primary revenue comes from companies paying THEM to run ads, lol
Though, I'm not monetized, so you wouldn't be getting ads watching my videos (unless there's a copyright claim in which the claimant can play ads on the video and receive full revenue from them). The only corporate greed there is that YouTube saw how much people hate ads, and you can pay for a no-ads experience... I'd rather just skip ads then pay, hahaha!
Time is money, unskippable adds cost time. I don't watch you tube videos with ads anymore, but at least yours are unaffected for now :)
Would you rather have ads during game play instead of paying $10 :p
Anyway, all corporations would like to get paid for work done, one way or the other.
