Hey BHW, Yesterday, I got the confirmation mail that my youtube channel was accepted for machinima network!!! I'm extremely happy about that, because it was my nr.1 goal since I started youtube and now I made it! There is only one problem: I'm 17 years old (turning 18 in 9 months) so i'm underage and my parents have to sign on my affiliate contract with machinima to confirm that I'm allowed to be partner with them. Now my question: I would prefer not to tell my parents about this, because I'm a girl and I do gaming videos, they wouldn't understand what I'm doing, ask a million questions and give me the whole speech about how it's not safe to earn money on the internet. I don't need that. So do they only have to sign the contract, and then they're not further involved in any ways? I can get paid by my own paypal adress.. Or do they maybe have to pay taxes for my income? Or have to do ANYTHING else for my channel?! If any of you have experience with this, know a lot about law and contracts or have any other advice, I would be glad to hear from you.. Because I really don't want to tell them and also I'm turning 18 in 9 months already and then I can manage everything myself, there is no need to involve them now. Thanks a lot for reading, looking forward to your advice because I really don't know what to do!
