    So i have been running through ideas on making extra cash and driving traffic to my niche site.

    Ive seen alot of talk here about uploading cool videos.

    Since i lack the skill to make a truly amazing vid for youtube, i was thinking about making a compilation of all the best videos in that niche.

    I will obvously referance the videos ive used in the description.

    Can anyone tell me if this is against youtubes policy?

    I dont want to go through the hassle of making a video and then it gets banned.

    Any thoughts or comments?

    I don't think so, unless you are RWJ, even RWJ itself got his account terminate before, because of that.

    There are too many of those already! The only way this is permitted is if the owner of the video gives you permission to use it. They do so by writing it in the original video description.

    You can start something like this and contact video owners individually, include only people who give you permission otherwise "you're gonna have a bad time"

    really depends on how you do it and if it's protected under the fair use act.

    For music you can use up to 30 seconds of a song as long as you reference it. Is this not the same for videos?
