Here's a question... One of my sites is a video site I set up, early on to show niche videos, that I do (fishing)
Soon after that it became evident that using youtube to host my videos was alot cheaper and more reliable than doing it myslef. so I uploaded to you-tube, embedded my own videos in my site and let the google ads run. I do alright with Google ads on this particular site. but is all my own content.
My question if I see another good video on Youtube, embed it on a page in my site, and add google ads to that page, am i doing anything wrong? I know YouTube doesnt care but would the adsense side care?
It seems to me that I would be making $$ off of someone elses work? Is that kosher? Or by using youtube, is the user opening himself up to this kind of traffic. I do know theres an option to not allow embedding...
Ive seen videos embeeded in other sites, and i know ive had mine embeeded in other peoples sites..
I had a look through googles policies, but cant find anything thats spells it out for me.. just wondering what other peoples thoughts are.
Ive also done a search on this site, but didnt come up with anything that answered my question..
