Similarly you cannot upload movie clips or songs and expect to make money with it.

How Google Pays You: Clicks or Visits?
According to the Google you could earn revenue in following ways
- Ads served through the Adsense Auction
- Ads that are sold on a reservation basis via DoubleClick and other YouTube Sources
- Transactions on YouTube Rentals
For a common video blogger that has joined the YouTube program you could make money depending upon the views that your video receives.
Usually they pay you 1 cent or less than that for a single view. Then if you get a million views for a particular video then you could make anywhere $3000 to $4000 for that video.
Hence, you better start focusing on creating good videos and getting as many as views.
How Much Money could You make from YouTube Partner Program?
Well as I said earlier you get paid 1/3 cent to 1 cent per view. If you get 1000,000 views X .0033 = $3300 for one video.
So similarly if you create more such videos then you could make up to $10,000 every month. However, you have to be very popular and create some awesome videos.
For me, it is not only about the money but the fame that you get. Even if you don’t make enough money but you are famous then you may get noticed by other popular networks like MTV and mainstream media.
If you reach their then your audience would grow naturally. Hence, you have to focus on creating videos that stands out from the rest.
