Google to Monetize Youtube
Google admits that they wants to monetize this site but they also admits that they still having a problem in monetizing YouTube. The problem is that advertisers are having trouble finding content they want to put ads with. Another problem is copyright. If you are the creator of that content, you own the copyright. That would have mean that you should have the rights to decide whether you want to advertising on your videos.
Now, Google is trying to push post-roll and pre-roll ads in all the video content. As NewTeeVee has point it out, these post-roll ads only appear if you do not click on the overlay ads while a video is playing. While in pre-rolls ads, a user has to finish watching such an ads before they can proceed to the video that they have already chosen to watch.
