    Any Drawbacks to YouTube Partnership?
    I was contacted by YouTube to monetize several of my videos via their partnership program. It would then send earnings to my AdSense account. I read through the agreement. My videos do not come close to infringing on any type of copyright, so I am not concerned with them deleting my videos. But I do have nearly identical non-YouTube videos that I host on my site. Wondering if the agreement would have any effect on that. Doesn't seem like it. Any other drawbacks I am missing?

    Perhaps this has been discussed before, but I could not find it in a search.

    I don't see any drawbacks, congrats with that. I know in the past I read it was hard to get in that program, don't know how it is today but it's extra income. There is one channel I'm subsribed to and the guy is making so much money, this is what he's now doing for a living, just making videos.

    Do you retain rights to the videos? Or are you really making content for Google?

    There seems to be a lack of decent ways to make money with YouTube. Most of the videos I use have press photos of products in, so under YouTube's rules they can't be monetised. However, I can use exactly the same images on another site and run AdSense ads on them. It's frustrating, especially as I get about 25k views a day!

    I think it's permissible to sell ad space in your videos directly though.. I might ad a short bumper to new ones for a related site I'm working on.
