We basically have an MCN (like Maker Studios) except that it’s only for our channels. So, any time we start a new channel, we can just partner it with our MCN and all the money comes to the same place and we get to claim content that gets re-uploaded.
We’ve thought about opening this up and inviting others in, but we don’t have the resources to police it and make sure that a large number of people wouldn’t mis-use our system, and I wouldn’t feel right about taking money from people to pay for said policing since monetizing videos on YouTube is something anyone can do now.
