and say it's all your own work, then they basically just approve it
and take your word for it.
But if you tick a "Yes" box that you have used someone else's work in
the video (which you would have to do if you bought it) then your
video gets flags and someone at Youtube will actually check that you
own the rights. i.e. they look at your receipt, signed form, or other
proof you give them.
If they get even a hint that you may not own the rights, or your
explanation isn't clear to them, your video gets canned. So you are at
the mercy of someone looking at and interpreting the info you give
That's why as a partner it's simply easier and less hassle to create
For those who aren't partners and haven't seen the extra questions
they ask when you upload a video, here it is:
And yes, you have to fill in that for every video you upload,
regardless if you have proven the same thing a hundred times before.

It means you get to put ads on your videos and make money, among other
benefits like no video time limits and extra channel creation stuff.

YouTube removed the 15 min restriction on some regular accounts already. Who
they choose for this, and what criteria do they use? I have no idea .. but
I'm included. I've recently uploaded two hour long videos without a problem.
It may be that most are now included and only those who have had "problems"
in the past are still restricted.
