I am a little confused about embedding other peoples' content. I understand the idea that people may not appreciate another person using their content without permission for monetary gain. Here is what I don't understand:
There are allowed third party players out there which play others' content, this seems to be the same as embedding a video in a webpage/app that doesn't belong to the website owner. Surely they have not gotten permission for every video they display.
On the official page regarding Monetizing Youtube (https://developers.google.com/youtube/creating_monetizable_applications), under Video Organization and Discovery it discusses giving users new ways of discovery videos. Is this not embedding other people's content?
When they view the video through another webpage/app they still receive compensation for the view. If a person wants to monetize their video, they can choose to monetize it when they upload. Or they can choose to make it public or private.
I would think that a monetized video author would appreciate a new avenue for their video to gain another fresh view, but this of course if my own reasoning. I can imagine that some video authors would not like having their video associated with a site or advertisements that they have no control over.
On the note above regarding the creation of a new avenue to someone's content, is it possible to monetize the link itself? I.e. get partial credit somehow for being responsible for the view? On YouTube's own sitein the link above, it seems they only way to monetize this would be to through AdSense on another portion of the page. The link above however, suggests that AdSense target areas should be removed from the area where videos are played.
Please clarify what the differences are, and when it may be allowable for people to embed other people's content. To be clear: this is a direct link to the original video, not a re-upload.
