    I agree with what Tearabite said.

    I have contacted google on this issue, and unless you OWN or have a leased license for the video, you cannot display adsense on your page with the video.

    Youtube videos are the same deal, do you have permission to use the videos? Just because they are there, and allow you to link to it doesn't mean you do.

    that's what most people think, and it's dead wrong.

    all of those embed codes are for non-commercial use only, per the tos of the video website.

    if you break the tos, you no longer have copyright permission to use the video clip... so while it appears that adsense support is ignoring that, you could still be on the hook for copyright violations.

    I do not think there are any copyright issues with embedding YouTube videos.

    I do it lots and Adsense have checked out my site many times and said it is fine.

    They are YOUTUBE'S responsibility, not yours. If the video itself is in violation of copyright, that's upto YouTube to sort out and doesn't mean you are breaching copyright or that your site is. The video files are not on your server nor do they have you logo in the flipping corner.

    Embedding videos is fine with adsense.

    I guess you never read Youtubes TOS.


    So, all someone needs to do is report you to either youtube or adsense, because you ARE violating a copyright and usage agreement.

    That is not true, you are looking into the meanings wrongly.

    YouTube automatically give you the permission to embed their videos.

    If they do not they should make their rules more clear, i've seen hundreds of sites with YouTube videos and Adsense on the same page.

    No im not looking at it all wrong.
    Look at ANY major video site like youtube, they all have the same TOS and it's clear.

    DO NOT use our videos on commercial sites.


    Heck if you think you are right, give me your sites URL and we can try out your theory!

    Well FanAddict I've just emailed Adsense support with this question of weather or not it is ok to use adsense on the same page as an emeded video such as a YouTube vid so we'll soon find out wont we.

    As for your point about YouTube's TOS, I am not breaking that either, I don't own any commercial sites, I own fansites and such and such.

    Commercial means owned by a company or sponsored, Adsense doesn't make a site commercial because they are not directly linked in prospect with the site, they are independant ads.

    We'll find out when this reply comes in anyway.

    Commercial means if you are making money from your website.

    Email the adsense support all you want. I have done so in the past myself what they told me was:

    You can only use videos that you own the copyright to or have a leased license.

    I see your not giving me your url :)

    I hate when people come into the forum and give advice they obviously know nothing about.

    Oh yeh sorry because your the know it all master of knowledge.

    Exactly, and the videos on YOUTUBE'S server are YOUTUBE'S responsibility, hence the reason everyone sues them with copyright issues, it's there responsibility.

    I DO have knowledge on this issue, as I have dealt with it in the past.

    You are also missing the 2 or 3 other members in this thread who also posted what I have said.


    Yes they are on youtubes servers, but once you put them onto your site, you do as well take responsibility. But that is not what we are talking about.

    We are talking about COMMERCIAL USAGE of youtubes videos which is PROHIBITED by youtube (in the exact quote I gave you)

    So your saying Adsense is not allowed to be placed on pages with copyright videos, even though they are not entirely your responsiblity if embeded.

    What about Putfile.com then? and other sites:

    http://media.putfile.com/South-Park-Matrix-56

    They have adsense, with tones of copyright videos.

    That is 100% correct.

    IF the copyright holder of any of those videos contacted adsense about 'that' site, adsense would remove the ads from that domain - no questions asked.

    Iv seen G ban domains because of this issue, they take it very seriously.

    I'll do a search on here and see what I can come up with...

    Also about the issue of your not allowed to put YouTube videos on sites which make money...

    What about this: http://www.shoemoney.com/

    Shoemoney posts YouTube videos sometimes, embeded, if you just scroll down you'll see one... and he has Adsense on there...
