Win for them: "A federal judge has struck down as unconstitutional the National Park Service's practice of charging commercial filmmakers who want to shoot in the National Park System, ruling it is a protected activity under the First Amendment."

Are you referring specifically to Kara and Nate?  Because I also posted it in the National Parks thread, where your comment would have made more sense.

Check out this video from their trip to Vietnam, where they are removing other people's garbage from the water.  Starts shortly after the 5-minute mark.  Tznius warning.

As you can see in this article as well as the one I quoted below, the permit and fee have nothing to do with the damage that may be done, but is solely based on whether or not it's commercial. If you watched Kara and Nate's video about it you would see the ridiculous amount of work they would need to put in only because they make money from their YouTube channel.

"For example, a 'non-commercial' filming production carried out by a non-profit organization or a news crew would escape the reach of (the) permitting regime, even if those groups used heavy filming equipment that damaged federal land," she wrote.

The permitting language carried no differentiation between large film crews with heavy equipment and small crews with no heavy equipment; Price used a single tripod with a camera and no more than four people.

In challenging the permitting requirement, Price pointed out that it does not apply to non-commercial filming, nor does it apply to news organizations. The absurdity of differentiating on the basis of whether a production was commercial didn't escape Judge Killar-Kotelly.

Quote
She writes, "In issuing this injunction, the Court observes that a more targeted permitting regime for commercial filming, which is more closely connected to the threat posed by large groups and heavy filming equipment, may pass constitutional muster in the future."
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Same as every "influencer". The more views, clicks, subscribers you have the more you get compensated (whether via sponsorships, free trips, youtube payments, etc)

Right but on their last income report they made $123,000. In profit.

One of a kind job they got going

Is their last report from 2019 Q3? Would be interesting to see what 2020 looked like.

Whats interesting is, nate himself (and his friend benji) will give you a personal credit card evaluation. With a side of travel hacking and kara teaches video editing. Looks like they make some money from that. Could be that was more of a focus

Why do you think they make more that KaraandNate with barely half the subscribers and less than half the total view count?

On Instagram, they have 2.5m followers vs. 466k for Kara and Nate.  I'm not much of a youtube user and see the prior references are to that.

He's not doing sponsored content for free, for sure.  But true that he does not need the money.
