Summary: Patreon banned Owen Benjamin. Owen Benjamin’s backers moved for arbitration, alleging various causes of action. Under the arbitration procedures spelled out in Patreon’s Terms of Service, Patreon must pay the filing fees, which could total millions of dollars. Patreon cannot collect those fees back, even if Patreon wins the arbitrations.
Patreon, by banning a Creator, disrupts the economic relationship between Creator and Backer. In legal terms this is called tortious interference with a business relationship.Patreon, under California law, must pay the arbitration fees in advance. These fees can be upward of $10,000 per case.If dozens of backers move for individual arbitration against Patreon, you can start doing the math.
tldr: Patreon係左膠/白左，之前ban過好多美國Pro-Trump嘅acc。咁呢D Pro-Trump嘅Creator嘅patron就告Patreon，而舊Patreon嘅條款就話唔俾集訟(class-action lawsuit)，而要逐個同佢搵人仲裁(arbitration)。不過加州法例就話如果係咁，開case個仲裁費Patreon俾，即係每單仲裁Patreon要先俾US$10,000。今次被ban嘅Owen Benjamin個channel唔係好大，得72個fans去申訴；不過Patreon亦ban過大channel，例如Sargon, Milo, Lauren Southern。如果可以咁玩，咁嚟緊會有成千上萬單仲裁，Patreon好可能好快會執笠，所以應該開始搬去類似服務，例如 SubscribeStar
