Youtube Monetization: should I do it?

A while back, I got an email that my YouTube account was eligible for monetization. Should I do it? Since some people on this forum have very popular YT accounts, I think it's the best place to ask.

If you do, just be careful with the music you use in any music videos. If you get money off of them, they expect you to follow WMG and whatever crap's copyright rules.

 

All in all, unless you make your own music, if you do apply, then music is pretty much going to have to be nonexistent in your videos.

 

Don't expect to make a living off of it. While people like nigahiga and kevjumba can probably make as much money as I do per year without any job, most people probably won't earn more then a few hundred unless your all your videos get over a hundred thousand hits or so...

If you got the views (video and channel views) for it, your set. Otherwise, dont be expecting much of a revenue increase.

 

I know, but a penny is a penny. Signed up. Thanks!

 

EDIT: Denied due to age limit. Too bad.

In a way, it's like Google AdSense... right?

 

Essentially, its the same thing, except YouTube adds $$ to your payout. You need the right amount of video and channel traffic along with a decent amount of videos to get top dollar payouts.
