       Slogan: Broadcast Yourself
                    (This reflects the basic intent of the sites owners)
 Strategy was
based around: User Generated Content (UGC)
                   - Users could join for free
                   - Users would create their own content and upload it
                   - Clips were limited to 10 minutes of playing time
                    (the reason was to keep bandwidth down)
                   (This was a cost effective model because it allowed the users
                   to create the content for the site)

 Initial target
    audience:        - Teenagers             - College students
                     - Hobbyists             - Amateur film-makers
                  To entice these people they came up with a contest which gave away one iPod
                  Nano to a random member each day, which ran for two months.            Contest
                  worked on a point-based system
                                          one point was rewarded for signing up
                                          one for inviting others               The more the
                                                                                points you gained,
                                          one for posting a video               the higher the
                                                                                   chance of winning

Videos: - YouTube videos are accompanied with a piece of HTML
          which can be used to embed the video on pages
          outside of YouTube (like social networking pages and blogs)

        - Most YouTube videos do not allow a download option
          and require the user to view them through the
          YouTube site.

        - June 2008 YouTube changes its policy to allow
          “long form content” to its partners but
          limits the content to 1 GB

Content ID: - Used to identify copyright material uploaded by
              users so companies can choose to either have it:
               a) removed immediately
               b) left on the site and the copyright holder could
                  make money via advertisements (this translates
                   into copyright holders making money from the piracy of their
            - Content ID has been a win-win for everyone
               - users don’t have their videos removed
               - viewers have more videos to watch & choose from
               - YouTube doesn’t have to worry about finding/
                  removing copyright material & lawsuits
               - The copyright holders make money

Revenue:   - Nearly all revenues are generated from ads
             sold to and uploaded by media partners known
             as PVAs (participatory video ads)
           - PVAs display on the side of the screen and can
             be rated, commented on & embedded in blogs
           - PVAs can earn “most viewed”, “most discussed”
             & “top favorite” status just like other videos
           - But only about 4% of videos uploaded to
             YouTube are from media partners

•YouTube’s Community Guidelines list cause for removal of videos –

        Sex and Nudity                  Privacy
        Copyright                       Harassment
        Shocking and Disgusting         Impersonation
        Dangerous Illegal Acts          Hate Speech

universities, institutions and private usage have difficulty with
downloading video.

•YouTube’s popularity is also becoming its detriment. More
bandwidth decreases speed. Again, need for increased technology.

•Some popular domain    names do not belong to the corporations,
but to individuals.
         McDonald’s     David Bowie     Microsoft
         BMW            Coca Cola       Yahoo
