Google Video Upload Program: Sell and Protect your Video

Google Video lets you search a growing archive of televised content — everything from sports events to dinosaur documentaries to news programs. They are now accepting video from anyone who wants to upload their video

The upload program lets you submit videos electronically to Google Video, as long as you own the necessary rights (including copyrights, trademarks, rights of publicity, and any other relevant rights for your content). Just sign up for an account and use the upload tool to send your videos to Google. The program is still in beta so you won’t see your videos live on Google Video immediately.

Once they approve your video submission and enter the next phase, they will send you an email (to the email address you provide) to let you know that they are ready to add your content to Google Video. Users will then be able to search, preview, purchase, and play your video. You’ll have the opportunity to add more videos, update the information about each video, or remove your video from the program.

Criteria for videos
– You must own all necessary rights to the content, including copyrights to both the video and the audio.
– You must be able to upload the video electronically.
– The video must not contain obscene material.

As the content owner, you decide whether you’d like to give away your video for free or charge a price that you set for it. If you do charge a price, Google will take a small revenue share to cover some of our costs. They have also put a number of measures in place to prevent copying or sharing of your content.

You must read and agree to the Google Video Upload Program Terms and Conditions. For more detailed information on Google Video Uploads, read the FAQ.
