What kinds of commercial uses of the YouTube website are prohibited, and which aren’t?

We’ve recently updated our Terms of Use to clarify what kinds of uses of the website and the YouTube Embeddable Player are permitted. We don’t want to discourage you from putting the occasional YouTube video in your blog to comment on it or show your readers a video you like, even if you have general purpose ads somewhere on your blog. We will, however, enforce our Terms of Use against, say, a website that does nothing more than aggregate a bunch of embedded YouTube videos and intentionally tries to generate ad revenue from them.

 

 

I just found this on:

Now, this could mean a couple of things: the so called “youtube” sites are in major major trouble, or the competitors (youtube’s) are going down.

 

I was smart and lucky enough to sell my youtube site a couple of months back. It was a great earner ( averege $15.00 a day with adsense).  I understand that Zango would be a great advertiser for this kind of sites. I just never had the guts to infect people’s computers with spyware. It was my choice to rather make less money and be safe.

 

Any comments about the new TOS?
