I almost forgot about this post. Guess I'll do a quick update.
I did contact the artist and he would be fine with a 25% cut. But I did some math from this article.
Doing the math on all the "Top Youtube earners". It works out to about .0007 cents per view.... So If I got 50,000 views this year I might get a whopping $35 bucks.... I could just click the box I own all the rights to the music and video, then send the artist a check once a year for $8.75 on honor. And then try and do that for all my video... Screw that. Not worth it. So I decided not to become a YouTube partner.

In Philadelphia a guy made $11 on a blog. The government sends him a notice he must sign up for a "Business Privilege License" for $50 a year, or $300 for a lifetime. There is nothing like that in Nevada as far as I know but just another reason to avoid the hassle.

Trying to run a 'legit' business in America, particularly the Northeast, is futile. The last couple of times I registered, the property taxes were more than the gross income for the entire year.
These youtube revenue sharing things only make sense if you have a billion views each month. A few thousand isn't going to cut it. Heck, I get a dozen views a year on many of my videos. Nah, not worth it.

DVXUSER is the best, just search and boom a thread on the topic. Just wondering if anyone had any more recent experiences with youtube?
