Let’s start off by saying one thing, Youtube, and Google, are businesses. A business’ goal is strictly to make money, that is the only goal, anything else is merely a solution to a problem that rises from the question of “How do we make more money?”

There is no real other question in the world of business that matters, only solutions, and this brings up the subscription feature that YouTube is looking to launch.

The subscription feature is expected to cost in the range of $10 and cover two services. The first service is YouTube’s recently beta launched YouTube Music Key, and the second is an ad-free viewing experience for YouTube itself.

Upfront this looks pretty tame, pretty expected in all honesty, but there are some underlying issues that many probably don’t realize.
