Revver – Step by Step Guide to Revver
Getting Started with Revver
Four quick reasons to use Revver

1. The deal is simple: advertisers’ money is split 50/50 between the video’s author and Revver. If there’s an affiliate involved (for example: a site that posts or links to your video) they get 20%, and the rest is split 50/50.

2. We use Creative Commons licenses in most cases. Listen to Lawrence Lessig (Founder, Creative Commons) discuss Revver. PLAY»

3. Signing up is quick and easy. Uploading videos is drag & drop.

4. Our website revver.com, has tens of thousands of viewers. Your video will be posted there, and if it gets high ratings, more people will watch it. The more people that watch it, the more clicks the ad will get and the more money the video will generate.

Revver attaches short advertisements to the end of videos that are uploaded to the Revver website.

Since the Revverized ad is embedded in your video, and can be changed anytime, you get paid no matter where your video may go regardless if it is:

* E-mailed to friends
* Burned to a CD
* Uploaded to another popular website
* Shared via P2P or IM
* Linked on del.icio.us, digg.com, myspace.com, your own blog, or anywhere else

No matter how it gets there, when people click on the ad, you get paid. Don’t like certain kinds of ads? We let you specify which ads you want associated with your video.

We even host your video for free. Sure, everybody does that now but we are unique as we are the only service that gets you paid.

And if you link to somebody else’s Revver video on your site, you can even get paid as an affiliate.

Techdirt: Don't Forget To Read The New Disclaimer For The Internet
"Yesterday, Rob Hyndman noticed an impressive disclaimer for a rock preserve, noting that he wanted to include similar language in future contracts. Lawyer David Canton couldn't resist and used the disclaimer as a model for a wonderful new disclaimer for the internet that we agree should be a must read for all internet users:

'Business is unpredictable and unsafe. The Internet is dangerous. Many blogs have been written about these dangers, and there's no way we can list them all here. Read the blogs. The Internet is covered in slippery slopes with loose, slippery and unpredictable footing. The RIAA can make matters worse. Patent trolls are everywhere. You may fall, be spammed or suffer a DOS attack. There are hidden viruses and worms. You could break your computer. There is wild code, which may be vicious, poisonous or carriers of dread malware. These include viruses and worms. E-mail can be poisonous as well. We don't do anything to protect you from any of this. We do not inspect, supervise or maintain the Internet, blogosphere, ISP’s or other features, natural or otherwise.' "

I should write something similar for anyone seeking emotional involvement with me… to this point I've apparently been unclear… and that's not fair I guess 

watch this space for that…………. (or offer suggestions b4 i get to it)
