Hey, our business is really big in video syndication and I've reached a troubling point where we are docked penalty after penalty because of the way we syndicate. Here are my questions...

1. If a website we syndicate video content too, provides credit in the form of "CREDIT: COMPANY NAME" (no hyperlink) is this sufficient? Or do they need to provide a link to the original video URL?
2. Can one of our syndicate partners link our homepage? Or do they need to link back to the exact original URL on our website? Note, if we syndicate 1000 pages, they will have that link posted 1000 times on every page we supply them content for.

These are difficult questions and really hard to tackle because our syndicate partners are the likes of MSN and Yahoo. Accomplishing exactly what Google "likes" isn't exactly easy in this case. Please advise.
