I can't think of anything I've seen on Youtube that I'd pay for - but maybe a few things would pop up if the option was there.

I can also see a bunch of butt-hurt content creators making their channels pay-only just to discover that the "fans" they thought they had were only fans when everything was free.

There are actually a few people who create stuff that's cool enough to pay for, but right now these guys (or in some cases: girls) already make money off the advertising-kickback feature. And I somehow seriously doubt that they'd make MORE money off a subscription feature, because like you said, the large majority of their fans would not pay for their content.

Even so, eh, I don't blame Google for trying to find more ways to make money off Youtube. I just hope that at the same time they'll do something about the bandwith, because it's been pretty poor lately.

There will still be about 900 trillion free videos on Youtube, so no need to worry.
