How old is Charlie Bit My Finger in 2020?

After roughly 900 million views, the 14-year-old viral phenomenon will be removed off YouTube.

In an email statement to The Verge, a Google spokesperson said: "We've updated our YouTube Community Guidelines to make it clearer that videos containing young children's content can trigger removal from the platform."

The change comes after Charlie Bit My Finger became one of the first major cases of child exploitation on YouTube. The video was created by Matt Chapman and Ross Butler who were trying to raise money for charity at the time. It originally appeared on their channel, Network Awesome, in April 2003.

Chapman and Butler had no idea it would go viral, with more than 9 million views as of today. They also didn't expect YouTube to react so negatively to the video, which contains scenes of young children appearing in pornographic material.

Was Charlie Bit My Finger removed?

The popular video now has a "single owner." Charlie Bit My Finger, the 2007 viral film that received almost 900 million views online, is finally departing YouTube following a high-profile online auction. For the rest of us, this means that the Davies-Carr family will permanently remove the video from YouTube.

The movie, which is about a dog who gets his paw stuck in a vending machine, was uploaded to YouTube on March 2, 2007 by its creator, Zachary Davies. It gained popularity and was viewed over 90 million times before being taken down due to copyright issues with Warner Bros., the studio that owns the rights to the Tarzan movie series. In October 2017, Davies announced on Twitter that he had reached an agreement with Warner Bros. to let him make money from the film.

After it was taken down, fans created hundreds of copies of the movie using different clips from other sources. These copies can still be found online today. The original film is again available through Davies's website. He also has plans to release a new version of the movie with all new scenes sometime in 2018.

Charlie was adopted after making the video. His story was told in a book written by Davies's father, David. The book, called Charlie Bit My Finger: A True Story of Love and Devotion, came out in 2008.

How much money was made from "Charlie Bit My Finger"?

On its tenth anniversary, the viral film had approximately 850 million views and had earned the two youngsters a tidy sum. According to The Mirror, the viral video earned about PS1 million ($1.3 million) in royalties in 2017. They also reported that Justin Bieber's song "Sorry" sold over PS10 billion ($140 million) in music sales in 2016.

In an interview with Billboard, Charlie's creator Jason Sussberg said he received several thousand emails per month from fans around the world. He added that he and his partners have been offered movie deals and other creative projects based on their work.

Sussberg also revealed that they earned about $100,000 after paying their staff. He said that most of the money went towards licensing fees and legal settlements.

Is Charlie biting my finger NFT?

Charlie Bit Me will not be removed from YouTube after all. This week, the 2007 popular video was auctioned off as a nonfungible token (NFT), with the vendor stating that it will be removed from the internet and "memorialized" on the blockchain. The video has been discussed extensively in the cryptocurrency community since its creation in 2007, due to its involvement of digital assets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.

In February 2018, Charlie Bit Me was sold at auction for $1,000,000 (about £750,000). The buyer planned to donate the money to charity. However, after news of the sale leaked out, the price dropped dramatically and no donation was made.

Cryptocurrency enthusiasts have debated for years whether or not Charlie Bit Me should be deleted because they believe it is a historical artifact worth preserving. Others argue that it is offensive material that should be removed to keep the internet safe for children. No clear consensus has been reached by either group of people.

It's important to note that Charlie Bit Me does not violate any copyright laws because it was created freely using public domain images. Also, it should be noted that although the original video contains clips from various sources, these materials are not licensed under copyright law and are considered fair use. Finally, it should also be mentioned that many artists have used elements from Charlie Bit Me in their own work without asking permission first.

How old is Charlie from Charlie Bit Me?

Charlie, who is now 15 and has outgrown biting his bigger brother, revealed why the family opted to sell and erase the tiny piece of online history from YouTube. "It's because we don't want kids to be scared away from computers and social media by things like this," he said.

In case you were wondering how much Charlie weighs, he weighs 7 pounds and 3 ounces and is 22 inches long.

His current birthday is September 25th, 2000. So, he has been alive for almost 16 years now!

He is also not his real name; they gave him a fake one when they adopted him from Korea. Apparently, most Korean dogs are named after famous Korean people or animals. The only thing that comes to mind is that maybe they wanted to name him after some kind of fruit but I can't think of any that starts with "C".

I guess we will never know his true identity but I hope that he lives a happy life full of love and laughter with his family who I'm sure show him all the time what it means to be loved.

Until next time, take care and God bless.
