watch, and if you want to "get paid" you can direct them to your own

3D content creators (another of my hobbies) give away TONS of quality
artwork in the interest of doing more retail biz either at their own
site or in collaboration with a clearing house site (like Renderosity or
DAZ) - it's part of the cost of overhead or advertising. It's strictly
business and I don't see any "ethical" issue at all with watching or
even recording stuff off YouTube - it's an open forum, and anybody that
posts there should have considered that before posting as part of their
I think the problem is when someone posts someone else's stuff to
youtube, which is very common.
Right. Posting stuff you own the rights too is your own business.
Posting someone else's stuff or covers of someone else's stuff without
a license is wrong.
