Creating Monetized YouTube tutorials

Postby ReneSC86 » Sun Mar 26, 2017 4:09 pm

Dear FreeCAD users,

Is it allowed to broadcast and monetize video's on YouTube showing tutorials of FreeCAD? Are there any restrictions to it?
It means turning on the well-known ads before and beside the video's and earn money with it. Thanks in advance!

Only (maybe) on the moral side ... :)
I personally doubt that you will be able to get a mentionable sum from youtube tutorials.

When starting doing youtube tutorials i thought
> i (most certainly) won't be getting rich with doing videos
> freecad is free so i think my videos should also be free
> i am doing this as a fun thing in my spare time, so not charging for my work is OK for me

But these are just my personal thoughts about my personal contributions to the project.
Fee free to decide otherwise ...

It is not easy to earn money on YouTube, but if you are good with FreeCAD, it could help you to find a work.
Estudié ingeniería técnica industrial en España y sólo me ha servido para estar en el paro, no me contratan porque no tengo experiencia, y no tengo experiencia porque no me contratan. No debí estudiar esa carrera.

Even I have similar plans, but till now I'm only able to make a very small amount which I'll be paid only after reaching the threshold amount of $100.
