1. YouTube Copyright Basics (by YouTubeHelp) Words cannot do justice to how much I love this video.  I think all law-related videos should now be made with puppets :)

    1. YouTube now has more than a billion unique users every single month... Nearly one out of every two people on the Internet visits YouTube.
  2. Take FreddieW, the geek-friendly YouTube channel that bills itself as “just some cool dudes making sweet vids with rad FX!” While the bro-y tagline might not scream mainstream, FreddieW’s numbers do. With 4.6 million subscribers and almost 800 million views across YouTube, FreddieW recently inked a sponsorship with Dodge, which will have a featured role in the second season of the company’s popular Video Game High School series. And if blue-chip car sponsors weren’t enough, the YouTube sensation just raised $808,341 off of 10,613 backers on Kickstarter
  3. Mobile has increased from 6% to 25% in last 18 months across the whole of YouTube
  4. Sydney’s Natalie Tran is Australia’s biggest star on {YouTube} - rated in the top 30 globally with more than 1.1 million subscribers. Her videos have been viewed an incredible 440 million times since she joined in 2006.

    Perth-based Rob Nixon gave up his day job as an airport shiftworker after his simple home cooking videos took off in the US. He now enjoys a six-figure salary - far more than he earned at his old airport job.

  7. For nearly five years of its seven-year history, YouTube has run a programme that gives non-profit organisations special benefits, such as a donate button on their pages and processing payments at no cost. From 13 non-profits at launch, the programme has grown to include some 17,000 organisations.
  8. That precocious Charlie is more than a finger-biter — he’s a moneymaker. The family that created the most viewed amateur YouTube video ever — featuring a biting baby and his talkative older brother — has made a half-million dollars from ads surrounding that video.
  9. YouTube now sees 4 billion video views per day. That’s a 25% increase over the past eight months, the company told Reuters in a report released this morning. There’s now approximately 60 hours of video uploaded to the site every minute, compared with roughly 48 hours uploaded in May.
  10. Today, 60 percent of all YouTube videos go live in under one minute — a year ago, no videos were being processed that quickly
