Thread Name: You Tube Income ?
Subject: RE: You Tube Income ?
I've had that email from them too.
I don't want adverts and I doubt I'd make even pennies on them. I should think you'd need 5 figure view counts before you got your first fiver out of them. (my biggest is just over 4000, not significant)

As for copyright;
* you are not supposed to post copyright violations
* I have one upload flagged as copyright but they haven't asked me to do anything about it.
* You can apply either "the standard YouTube license" or a Creative commons attribution license In both cases you own copyright, but with the latter you give permission for your material to be copied.

YouTube videos can and do get embedded on all sorts of other sites unless you forbid embedding.
