YouTube to pay contributors
Ad share planned
YouTube founder Chad Hurley says the company will soon start to share advertising revenue with users of the service who post popular videos.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Saturday, Hurley gave no details of how this would be achieved or how much contributors would be paid.
Hurley told the Financial Times that the company had initially rejected paying for content because “we didn’t feel it was a great way to build a community. We wanted to keep it pure”.
