Sometimes I may be the lone soldier you see and hear who is asking questions, seeking answers, and unearthing revelations but I am uplifted and humbled by the crowd who is joining me in the quest.

About a month ago I did a story on how some artists like JUSTIN BEIBER AND LADY GAGA, get paid per view on YouTube (which are in the millions) while a new or lesser known artist gets nothing!! https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2011/09/22/can-youtube-save-the-music-business/

As usual I got some excellent comments from many of my irate, influential, and powerful  readers who joined the battle to get justice for everyone, then the week before last I received an e-mail from YouTube telling me NOW I could get paid for every view, by splitting fees from ads placed beside my video. I got so excited that before I looked to see where to sign up I emailed my supportive friends that we had won our latest battle against the powers that be.

Dear ArtieWayne,

Your YouTube account ArtieWayne might be eligible to earn revenue from the playbacks of your videos.

Making money from your videos is easy. Here’s how it works: First sign into your YouTube account. Then review and complete the steps outlined here: (BLANK URL)

If your account is enabled, we may place ads next to the videos you submit for monetization. You will earn a share of the revenue from the ads as long as you meet the program requirements.

Thanks and good luck!

The YouTube Team

 When I clicked onto the url it said, “ERROR NOT ELGIBLE FOR THIS FEATURE”.

I REALIZED THEY WERE THUMBING THEIR NOSES AT ME…BUT IN THE PROCESS THEY ADMITTED THEY ARE PAYING SOME PEOPLE AND NOT PAYING OTHERS…EXACTLY AS I SUSPECTED!

Then about a dozen friends told me that late last week they were sent same email I was sent by youtube, but were allowed to sign up.

Then this article ran in the New York Times http://finance.yahoo.com/family-home/article/113715/cash-in-youtube-video-nytimes

I’m happy to say that ARTIE WAYNE ON THE WEB has been able to change the questionable ACCOUNTING policies of giant corporations. I’m even happier to say that some of my investigations have led to the discontinuing of certain practices and released millions of dollars into the hands of people it belonged to! But this clever act of appeasement by YouTube isn’t enough!

(I’M NOT SHOUTING…BUT IT’S EASIER TO TYPE THIS WAY WITH ONE FINGER)

NOW I APPRECIATE THE MEAGER OFFERING THAT HAS BEEN SO WELL ORCHESTRATED AND WELL PUBLICIZED BY YOUTUBE…BUT NOW I WANT TO BE PAID RETROACTIVELY…I’VE EARNED IT!

LAST CHRISTMAS, THERE WERE 27 VIDEOS UP ON YOUTUBE, WITH COMBINED VIEWS OF OVER 500,000. USING MY SONG “LITTLE CHRISTMAS TREE” (CLINTON JR./ WAYNE) BY MICHAEL I SAW ADS ON THE SIDE OF THE VIDEO, WHICH MEANT SOMEBODY GOT PAID.

IN TWO WEEKS I’LL BE RECEIVING A STATEMENT FROM WARNER BROTHERS MUSIC, THE PUBLISHER OF THE SONG, WHICH I’LL SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU WHICH WILL NOT ONLY SAY HOW MUCH I’VE EARNED FROM YOUTUBE BUT ALSO WHAT I EARNED FROM HAVING TWO OF MY SONGS IN FOUR POSTHMOUS MICHAEL JACKSON CDS.

IN THE TWO AND A HALF YEARS SINCE MICHAELS DEATH I’VE RECEIVED LESS THAN $4000 FROM BOTH SONGS IN MECHANICAL INCOME. LAST WEEK IT WAS ANNOUNCED THAT MICHAEL JACKSON WAS THE HIGHEST PAID CELEBRITY LAST YEAR EARNING $170 MILLION DOLLARS…SOMETHING IS WRONG… SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG!
