    I have three YouTube videos that are eligible for YouTube revenue sharing, but only one that I think could actually be applicable.

    First video is just a recording of The Price is Right, so that is out of the question.

    The next is my Pokemon spoof video, which has all sorts of copyrighted names and music in it, so it is also out of the question.

    But my last video is a video of me removing an Xbox 360 warranty sticker... Can I enable this one for revenue sharing? Or am I infringing on some copyright here?

    Thanks!

    I don't think you're infringing, go ahead and enable it.

    Do you get in trouble if you enable sharing and the video gets disabled for copyright reasons? Isn't that YouTube's bad for inviting that video to the program? (Also, why are you asking here and not on... YouTube?)

    Er... YouTube is a message board, only the first post of a topic is always a video.

    What he means by that is YouTube doesn't have a message board for asking this kind of question.

    I also have a video that I was offered revenue sharing for, but it's a video with footage from a game trailer, and sound from somewhere else. I declined, because I don't want to be sued or anything that could come from that.

    Only when you get a lot of views on a video, youtube will email you and ask if you'll like to enable it. I was suppose to enable about 10 of my video's... Still haven't LoL.

    Wow, the largest amount of views a vid from me ever got is ~200.

    Then again, it is the only vid I ever made and I chose to make it a private vid. All views come from GBAtemp.
