God bless YouTube – like the West Coast techno-hippies we all knew they were at heart, they’ve decided to give something back to the community. Specifically, money.
Of course they’re not going to start paying content producers for their work directly – they’re not Communists! The giant video-sharing site has announced that it’s going to extend to the UK a partnership scheme that shares advertising revenue with successful posters.
Has anyone told the Writers’ Guild of America?
