YouTube expands advertising program; still sketchy on revenue-sharing

YouTube is expanding its "partner program" today, allowing a wider range of content creators to include ads in their videos and earn some coin. The program is now open to anybody in the US or Canada.

But you still have to apply to become a partner, and YouTube hasn't been very up-front about how the revenue split will work.

    Partners who regularly produce videos with more than 1 million page views earn "several thousand dollars per month," according to YouTube.

And NewTeeVee has a bit more shading on the announcement.
