If the creator of the video wasn’t in the YouTube Partnership Program (YPP), he or she would not receive any part of the ad fees for that video.

In creativity, it’s fear that often stops people from coming up with new ideas. They are afraid of being wrong, ridiculed, and/or failing. Still, Halloween is a good time to practice your creativity and face your fears!
