Do you know you can earn money from other people videos on Youtube? Yes, you heard it right. You can earn money by uploading other people videos legally on YouTube and Youtube is 100% OK with it.  Monetizing simply means showing ads on YouTube videoes with help of Google Adsense on your YouTube channel and earning money from it. I hope you guys are well aware of how to monetize in YouTube channel from ad sense and how to earn money. If not, then check our blog about how to monetize videos on YouTube and earn money in YouTube.


Apart from making your own unique videos and monetize it, you can also monetize other people videos legally and YouTube is permitting you to do so. So you might be wondering how we are actually going to do this, isn’t this illegal, so the answer is Yes, stealing other people videoes from YouTube and uploading them into your own channel is illegal and this can actually cause your YouTube Channel to be banned. But, here in this article, I will show you how to do this properly and legally by understanding the difference between types of videos which are legally bound and can not be used by others while the videos which you can legally use and monetize on your channel.  So let’s check out this below:


YouTube permits the owner of the original videos that they can choose an option that makes their video copyright free and anyone can take it and use it as per their wish. This is called creative commons. YouTube allows their users to mark their videos with a Creative Commons (CC BY) license and hence allowing others to use it legally. By marking your original video with a Creative Commons license, you are permitting the entire YouTube community to reuse and edit that video. You can read more about it here:


Let say if you are searching for any keyword : Lizard in youtube, it will show you all the videos with that keyword, however, you can just put a comma after it and put creative commons then it will search only for only those videos related to lizard keyword where users have given permission to reuse it e.g.lizard, creative commons

You can also search with lizard and then in choose Creative Commons in Filter criteria.

Creative Commons YouTube


You can also use Creative Commons videos that you can find in the YouTube Editor to create your own work, but do not just copy them and throw ads on them. Edit and mix them with your content and then publish it.

What’s eligible for a Creative Commons license

  • Your originally created contents or videos.
  • Other people videos marked with Creative Commons (CC BY) license.
  • Videos found in the public domain


Can I use others videos other than Creative Commons?

Technically, yes till the video will not be found  But, I will suggest you keep away from this as if you are using others videos without proper permission,  you are risking of losing all your Youtube earnings but also Youtube can terminate your account for violation of copyrights.

If you don’t want any such problem, then make sure you will get proper rights to publish the video under your accounts. This is essentially what most of the MCN are doing. I understand the tight margin, but you will work consistently with proper way, you will definitely get success and become a Youtube star.

Thank you!
