    I was just curious, does CPA YouTube videos actually violate TOS?
    All these key or whatever generators and free points that asks users to go to a content locker website?

    I don't think it helps in the long run though.

    That is true indeed, karma is a bitch, but this thread hold more like a educational meaning, as I'd actually like to know the answer

    Probably it's against the ToS. So here's my simple solution: I always uploaded in the thousands to stay on the safe side. It's also interesting to notice that it's been recently ruled that violating the ToS != violate the law so this has been a very effective way to counter their bs... Easy peasy :D

    https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2010/07/court-violating-terms-service-not-crime-bypassing and what I was referring to (the appeal): http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2012/04/terms-of-service-violations-not-a-crime-appeals-court-rules/ of the US Law. We all know how long their arm stretches to even if you are in another country... ;)
