You are more than the sum of your uploads. On your new channel, branding works across devices, you can reach out to non-subscribed viewers, and you can show off more of your content so fans will go deeper.
Is there a widget that shows the number of subscribers and channel views for a particular user?

Copyright Tips page
can help you determine whether your video infringes someone else's copyright.
By clicking "Upload Video", you are representing that this video does not violate YouTube's
and that you own all copyrights in this video or have authorization to upload it.
Since there is no facility to re-upload videos, it's important to test your audio and video quality are satisfactory before you release your video publicly onto YouTube. Once a video becomes popular, the number of views, user ratings, user comments and other community data, cannot be transferred if another, higher quality version of the same video is uploaded. Make sure you get it right!

Google bought out YouTube in November 2006 for 2.2 billion USD. The YouTube site has enjoyed record numbers in 2006. In July the site was showing more than 100 million clips daily and 20 new million visitors were coming to the site each month. In 2006 YouTube accounted for about 60 percent of all videos watched online, outweighing the combined numbers for Yahoo Video, Google Video, Mustache and AOL Media.
Online recommendations have been the driving force for the rapid growth. Top-rated amateur videos have garnered up to 36 million hits.
Copyright - YouTube limits single video files to 10 minutes, which prevents posting of complete movies or TV episodes. The company will also remove posts on request from the copyright holder. It is also seeking out collaborative relationships with content providers.
Technology - YouTube uses Macromedia Flash Player 8 which had a major leap in in video quality combined with a smaller download. Combined with faster download speeds on broadband, the innovations allowed more nearly instant video of online video.
