Hey there,

Dave is right in his description. Hosting a video that has content which is not your own violates our Terms of Service.

If the video owner allows embedding of their video, they are essentially acknowledging that people will be embedding their video. Embedding that video does not violate our TOS.

Please take note of Colette's points about Adsense, too.

Thanks! Kendall
