Scott this is new to me but this makes sense, advertisement is a billion dollar industry. It’s good to jump in. My Infotech friends have been discussing about this and we are now exploring ways to take advantage of this becoming a YouTube Partner. I’m just concerned about copyright issues and I wanna know if this is sanctioned by Youtube? Any guys who are partners already? Guys of eWorld especially cool dudes of Santa Barbar, do you know about this? Please leave suggestions

Hi Mike:

I am not sure what you mean about copyright issues. Do you mean you are concerned with copyright issues when making YouTube videos?

Hi Scott,

I am not sure if copyright is the correct term. My friends and I plan to post videos. So in effect we are starting a partnership and we will create small video clips about anything. However, we realize that eventually we will create a specific style of video presentation. Now, suppose we will be able to create a “good” piece, can we claim ownership over the video? We do not want our “product” to be copied by anybody else. Will there be guarantees from Youtube?

Hi Mike:

Yes, you can claim ownership of your videos if they are your exclusive content, but I don’t believe that YouTube can make any guarantees about someone copying what you are doing. If you create a brand then trademark it and copyright your material, then of course you would be protected by copyright laws. I still don’t believe that YouTube though can really keep people from stealing your work. Now, if they take your work and post it on YouTube, you can get YouTube to make them pull it down. This is just what I think, I could be wrong on some of this so it may be best to ask YouTube.

Scott, Is it allowed that we will enter into YouTube partnership as a Registered corporation? Also, can you suggest of minimum tools or materials that we should possess like camera to ensure we could qualify as partner? By the way are you a Youtube partner or an agent? Thanks Scott

Hi Gerard:

I am not sure about entering a YouTube partnership as a registered corporation. You would have to contact YouTube about that one or check there partnership terms.

You basically need a video camera or web cam or some way to make videos. You can also use programs like Camtasia to make videos of the screen on your computer.

Thanks Scott for your reply, I will go through the YouTube Partner contract later. I’m glad that there is no specific requirements for the gadgets.

Since Youtube is about number of views you can generate then logically make sure you can prove your competence before you apply. As much as possible, create a channel and so to it least 50,000 views. I observed that most channels are slower than this. Remember YouTube partners receive a percentage of the ad revenue from videos posted as well as other special features. So the more views, the merrier!

What is the fastest way to contact YouTube? I want to present a proposal.

Scott says:

The only way to contact YouTube is to go to their support section here:

YouTube is owned by Google and they are hard to get in direct contact with so your best bet is to email them or try the support forums.

Ah , I see. I thought sending registered snail mail could be an option or I thought there is a hotline for this. I was also expecting Youtube to execute a hard contract and other formalities. Who knows, my videos will be really a hit! I want to do them legally.

My penpal is a Youtube partner. He earned respectable sum out of it. He said he will train me so I can do it also. He asked me to think of any concept while I am not yet a partner. So I’m hooked to Youtube lately to check the top trends.

What does a cost-per-impression advertising means? Youtube Partnership Program mentioned this as the basis for revenue sharing. Thank you

Congrats to all who follow Scott’s advice. As you know guys, the recession is drying our Bank accounts. Don’t just wait and bite your fingers. Be a youtube partner so you will have something to rely on these days.

Hi Jeszachel:

Cost per impression means that YouTube will share a certain percentage for every certain amount of ad impressions your video receives. Usually it is per 1,000 impressions.

Just a follow up question related about Mallo’s advice, Scott, does cost per impression offers a standard or fix payment rate? If so, then it doesn’t matter where the views came from.

I think it all depends on what the advertiser is paying.
