After years of dealing with youtube, I think I have the process figured out.
If you would like to see your picture or video clip in one of my videos, what I need from you is a picture of a signed, handwritten note that says "I give Paul Wheaton global commercial permission to use my" (item goes here) "which I made".
So if you send me a picture of a duck, it says "I give Paul Wheaton global commercial permission to my pictures of a duck which I made."
This wording is VERY EXACT and very important. The grammar is awful, but the key is that it gets by the youtube worry warts. It must be a photo of a hand written note.
Take a picture of the note and email it to me along with whatever you are sending me.
If you are sending me something that is too big for email, you probably want to put it on a file drop and send me the link. Here is more info on that.
Video of folks sitting in a chair and talking is just fine.
Video/pics of cute little kids saying things way beyond their years is awesome.
If you wanna be all sexy while talking about plantain, that sounds like fun. (hubba hubba!)
I bet there is all sorts of nutty, wacky, fun stuff that can be done on a video for all of our homesteading and permaculture topics. And outakes are fun too!
I will probably only use about 20% of the stuff sent to me. And that which I use could be a day to several years when I use it.
Please tell me what to say about the subject in the video (name, location, web site, farm name, title, etc.) I prefer to leave the last names off of anybody under 18.

I can probably shoot some video of comfrey in guilds, chopping it down, and putting it in a bucket to make compost tea (or whatever you call it when you add decomposed comfrey to water and spray it on your plants).
With flickr.com you can set your photos to be under a CC license when you upload them. Might be a simpler process (vs. a signed note for each photo) if people don't mind opening up their photos for use by the world -- which is probably why they took the photo in the first place.
1. Create flickr account if you don't already have one. 2. Set your default license to "Attribution Creative Commons" - http://www.flickr.com/account/prefs/license/ 3. Upload photos & videos 4. Send Paul your flickr account name and/or link to your flickr photo/set 5. Paul peruses your stuff, picks out what he likes. 6. Paul includes your flickr account name & photo name(s) in the credits for his video.
I have been doing this for a while with my flickr photos, it is kind of fun to google your flickr account name to see who is using your photos.
Note that the free account on flickr only allows 200 photos. I think you can do this sort of thing on most any photo sharing site.
You brought this up in another thread, so I'm gonna copy and paste:
Dave, over the last two years I have spent far too much time looking into all of the different bits and bobs of "permission" and what youtube gets wonky about. Rather than regurgitate all of it, or burn 20 hours talking about it with you and the hundreds of other people that feel the same as you about it: I am going down the path I have outlined for a lot of good reasons. I still make it freely available. And I maintain a copyright on everything.
