I want to create a niche tube site with embedded videos from youtube, etc. and monetize it with affiliate links in the (original, not copied) descriptions. What should I be concerned about if I do this? Youtube/adsense tos? copyright claims?
Any help is appreciated, I'm sure some of you are doing this already.
Edited to add:
Just went through Youtube TOS and found this:
5. General restrictions on use
5.1 Subject to your compliance with the Terms, YouTube hereby grants you permission to access and use the Service, subject to the following express conditions, and you agree that your failure to adhere to any of these conditions shall constitute a breach of these Terms on your part:
