    Maybe you should turn your adblock+ off, they are to the right hand side of every video

    Not every video, only video's copyright by people but still allowed for use if Youtube can display advertisements next to the video and the copyright owner receives 35% of the advertisement profit based upon impressions.

    Theres alot of criticism of youtube's business model, their advertising is probably only there to cover their copyright lawsuits :p and were running at a loss.

    Now they are reversing this from doing deals with tv networks to air their program's
