    Hello All My Beloved BHW Friends,

    I have few question about making video, monetizing and few more in YouTube. Please take a look all the questions:

    1. Am i able to create video using image slider without sound? Also am i able to use bought music for my video? If i will use images collect from many sites, will it fall down under copyright violation? Let me give you an example: Suppose i will create a video about " Top 10 amazing place in the world " and If i will use 10 places image from many site will it fall down under copyright violation? Am i able to monetize that video?

    2. How much i will paid for each 1K views?

    3. Will they ban my account if i will use image slider video which i described in point number 1.

    4. After creating a channel in YouTube, am i able to transfer my YouTube channel? Like if i wanna sell my channel which is earning money for me?

    5. Do i need to unlink my adsense account before changing ownership?

    Please let me know those questions answer. Those answer will help me to better understand about YouTube more.

    1. Yes, technically you could make silent slideshow videos, but who would want to watch them? No, you cannot just use a random song you bought as the song would (most likely) be copyrighted. Either, you will need permission from the artist(s) or search for non-copyrighted songs, there are plenty of catchy ones available for free. Most youtube networks also provide a music library with exclusive music licenses for their partners to use.

    I am not a lawyer, and YouTube's Help-section doesn't really help around this topic. I think you want to make your videos "Fair Use", which is a law to protect freedom of speech - basically makes it impossible for companies to censor people giving them bad reviews and such. YouTube gives a few examples of OK videos, here are they:

    Read more what they say about 'Fair Use' here: https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/en/fair-use.html

    If we take WatchMojo.com as an example, they make "Top 10"-videos. They add an useful commentary so their videos count as "Fair Use", but just adding music and picture, I doubt that makes it OK. You'll need to put in some effort yourself (or outsource) for it to count, basically.

    2. Your CPM will be based on your traffics geographic (just like Adsense CPC), your niche and how well targeted the advertisement is. I'd suggest joining a YouTube network, most of them offer higher CPM than Adsense would do. Generally, they have a adsales team that works hard to provide more targeted ads for their partners.

    3. Not as long as you make it "Fair Use" or as a informational video, no. They don't care about what software you use, it might just be that the copyright holders (photographers or their agencies) might report your video. So, I'd suggest you to either get their permission or get your video under the category "Fair Use".

    4. Yes and no, you can make the next owner manager of the Google+ account which makes them manager over your channel(s) as well. This is highly against ToS of YouTube though so don't promote about it in your channel title like some others do. That's plain stupidity.

    5. I don't think you can change Adsense account as you cannot transfer a channel.

    Hopefully this was useful,
