FAQ

1. Why should I place a MY TIP GLASS logo button over my video?
     It's the easiest way for you or anyone to earn money from their videos directly from people who were just looking at your video. You don't have to sell someone else’s stuff or partner with anyone and get a piece of what they are doing. People will either like your Video and tip you for it or they won't. If you market your video to a wide audience and make it funny entertaining, or informative, people may show their appreciation and TIP you because of it. However, A "MYTIPGLASS" logo button on your video does not guarantee that you will receive any tips at all,it just affords you an opportunity to. Also, because most of the video content on the Internet is OPEN SOURCE you may also place a TIP GLASS logo button on videos that you did not create since the majority of people do not own their videos or have a Trademark or Copyright to protect their videos. Therefore, If you make a funny video or any type of video that you think may have some value, then you may not want to upload that video anywhere else without placing a "MYTIPGLASS" logo button on it because anyone can place a "MYTIPGLASS" button ON YOUR VIDEO and market your video and receive Tips. The "MYTIPGLASS" logo button is a very powerful tool and because of its potential lucrative nature to all video contributors there will be a lot folks combing the Internet looking for videos that have some entertainment or instructional value that would make it worth their time to download the video and attach a "MYTIPGLASS" logo button to it and see what they can get for it. This is not illegal if the video is copyrighted or has a Trademark. Placing a MYTIPGLASS logo button on videos that have Copy write and Trademark protections violates our Terms of Service and Pay Pal's Terms Of Service. Thus,  If the TIP GLASS logo is placed on the a video of this nature any TIPS received will be Forfeited and the user agrees to return TIPS received back to the contributors plus any cost or charges incurred therein. In addition, the violator could also have their account at www.mytipgass.com suspended and the videos submitted will be deleted. PAY PAL is the only payment gateway that we use so the placement of a TIP GLASS button on these videos is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

                                                                                            WARNING!!!

2. Can I place the TIP GLASS Logo Button on my You Tube Videos and place them back on You Tube?

   Not directly but indirectly YES and you won't lose any views. The Placement of the MYTIPGLASS logo button onto a You Tube video is very easy to accomplish, and those videos will be hosted here, but having You Tube HOST that video with the logo won't be accomplished. Why? because MYTIPGLASS and YOU TUBE have different PLAYERS that the videos are originating from so if you were to upload your TIP GLASS video with the logo on it onto You Tube's video player,  the video would appear but the Logo would not. In addition You Tube does not share in the TIP so they would not want to host that video anyway. No problem. Here is how you can still get the video views of people who are viewing your videos on You Tube. Please follow these steps:

a. First, Login to your MyTipGlass account with the user name and password that you selected.

b. Make sure that your User Name appears above the page that you are viewing where it states "Welcome _______ to my tip glass." Your user name should appear in the blank space on that page to verify your login status. Why is this important? Well,  because if you are uploading a video on your page WHILE YOU ARE LOGGED IN then your Pay Pal information will be attached to that video. You don't want to give your TIPS to others do you? Now Minimize this.

 c. Then, login to your You Tube account and locate your video. Once you have located the video that you have on You Tube Download it into your computer, if you have not done so already, so that it can be properly uploaded into MyTipGlass. Minimize this after you have done this.

d. Once the video is downloaded into your computer then login to  www.mytipglass.com and  maximize your window on  www.mytipglass.com  and insure that your user name appears above as previously indicated.

e. Now, upload the video by clicking on the UPLOAD button on the top of the page while you are logged-in to the site.

f. Once the video is uploaded play it and you will see the TIP GLASS logo attached. This TIP GLASS has YOUR Pay Pal user name embedded. This video will also have a LINK that will appear at the address bar above and on the video page. You can Right Click and copy it. This LINK when clicked will redirect back to this page. You can minimize this.

g. Now maximize your You Tube video window while you are still logged into your You Tube account and above your You Tube video you should see a button that says EDIT VIDEO. When you click this, just below the video is the VIDEO DESCRIPTION. This will open and you can ADD TEXT to this box. At the very beginning of this box you can type in the following text:

 "Like My Videos? Tip me at ................" or  " Like it? Leave me a Tip @ ..........." or anything else that you can think of that will drive the viewer to your TIP GLASS videos. Just place your LINK in there and your viewers can follow you to your www.mytipglass.com page where you can earn money. However, keep in mind that you cannot violate the Terms Of Service by using profanity, sexual references, drug references, etc., in the description box or any TIPS earned by you will be canceled and your account closed. Also, when placing the Text in the Description box DON'T ERASE ANYTHING..JUST ADD TO IT because there may be Key Words in there that you need in order for people to find your videos.

h. You can also market your www.mytipglass.com videos on YouTube by doing the following:

    a. Add Text Language OVER your video telling people on You Tube to follow you or join you or tip you on........ and give them your LINK.

    b. Mention where your videos are in your videos as you shoot them for You Tube and then upload them there.

    c. When people COMMENT about your videos on You Tube comment back to them and let them know where TIP GLASS videos are.     Contact folks who left older comments too, especially if their comments were positive,helpful, or just neutral.

    d. Your Links can be used on FACEBOOK and MYSPACE in their LINK SECTION on the very first page after you have logged in. These LINKS come in beautifully and go out instantly to all of your friends. One of The best ways to market your videos on those two social media sites is to first create BUZZ by sending out an announcement that you are about to send everyone something that is really cool or informative, or special to you, etc,.and you would appreciate it if they would check it out.  Then, send a second announcement stating it will be out in two days and then one day and then send it to everyone asking them to critique it and tell you what they think. Then later, tell them that your second video is coming out and that the response to the first one was so tremendous (Even if it were not) that you wanted to show the folks something really special, etc.

    e. Email. Your links can be placed in any email, TWITTER, the back of a business card, Letter head, on a Resume, etc., and forwarded to others.

4. How do I Know what videos to place this TIP GLASS logo button on? 

That is the number one (1) question that you must ask yourself when using the "MYTIPGLASS"Logo button. The "MYTIPGLASS" Button can be displayed on all Copyrighted or Non-Trademark protected videos (but not Adult or Pornographic videos, videos that contain illegal drug use, gambling, cigarettes.). For example, amateur productions, poems, your own personal videos, short independent non-sanctioned videos or film, etc  are all good places to start. Beware when using the "MYTIPGLASS" logo button. You must be smart or you’ll likely be sued from here to China. Know the rules. To help you, if you follow our guidelines here, you’ll avoid about 99% of any problems. Make sure that you read our Frequently Ask Questions“ and our "Terms of Service" so that you familiarize yourself with your obligations and duties in order for you to use this "MYTIPGLASS" logo button. You agree that if you are sued for misuse or improper placement of the "MYTIPGLASS" logo button on a Copy protected video or on Copyright Protected works, that you are primarily liable for any harm or losses that you may have caused and you agree to hold www.mytipglass.com harmless from your conduct. Forewarned is Forearmed. Don’t ignore the obviously copywriter works as well as the ones that you suspect are possibly copyright protected. Just bypass them and search for other videos outlined here because there are tens of millions of Videos out there and 200,000 videos are uploaded worldwide on the Internet on a daily basis. Here are some suggestions and a General Rule to follow when you are looking for videos to put your "MYTIPGLASS" logo button on to avoid a Copyright violation.

       Please follow this general rule first:

            ONLY PLACE THE TIP GLASS BUTTON ON VIDEOS THAT YOU HAVE MADE YOURSELF. YOUR ORIGINAL WORK OR IDEA OR SONG OR POEM, OR PHOTO, OR BLOG, OR VIDEO OF YOU SINGING IN A CONTEST, GIVING ADVICE, GIVING INSTRUCTIONS, DEMONSTRATING HOW-TO IDEAS, COUNSELING, ROLLAR BLADING, DANCING, ETC., ARE ALL TIP GLASS SAFE FOR THE MOST PART. IF YOU FOLLOW THIS RULE YOU’LL BE JUST FINE FOR THE MOST PART. WHY THE WORD OF CAUTION? BECAUSE THIS IS NEW TERRITORY FOR THE INTERNET, SO EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED IN THESE NEWLY UNCHARTED WATERS. HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE THE GAMBLING TYPE AND WANT TO TRY AND COMB THE INTERNET TO SEARCH FOR ENTERTAINING VIDEOS TO PLACE A "TIP GLASS" LOGO BUTTON ON, THAN THAT IS POSSIBLE TOO AS PREVIOUSLY STATED, BUT IT IS A LOT MORE DANGEROUS AND CAN JEOPARDIZE YOUR PAY PAL ACCOUNT STATUS IF YOU GUESS WRONG. IT COULD ALSO GET YOU SUED. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT MOST OF THE VIDEOS ON THE INTERNET ARE NOT REALLY OWNED BY ANYONE, THEY ARE JUST SITTING THERE IN CYBER-SPACE ON A SERVER AND HAVE NO COMMERCIAL OR PRIVATE PROTECTIONS. BEFORE PLACING A TIP GLASS BUTTON ON A VIDEO ASK YOURSELF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS , AND IF YOUR ANSWER IS YES, THEN DON'T DO IT;

A's this Video from a well-known or little known recording artist, group, production company motion picture company, a movie trailer,recordings studio, Independent studio, or a rebroadcast or rerun of a television show, radio show, news cast, sports cast, professional athlete, singer, musician, group, sporting event College, school, church event, or from a political speech, or rally?

B.Does the video display logos or channel numbers or sponsors or flyers in anyway showing that it has a trademark or had originated from a trademark or other source?

C.Does the video sell, market, endorse, or give away something?

D.Does the video take place as a live or recorded performance in an arena, show, or stage?

E. Would anyone viewing this video say that it’s either copywrite protected or it should be?

F. What does my gut feeling tell me about this video?

G.Is this video worth the risk of me being sued for profiting off of someone else’s work, likeness, name, performance, etc?

H.Is this video worth having to risk all of my Tips or cause me to be thrown off of "MYTIPGLASS" and or likely being reported to Pay Pal?

I. Is this video an adult video or has adult content? If so, STAY AWAY even if It’s close. The placement of a "MYTIPGLASS" logo button on this type of video violates Pay Pal Rules. You’ll have to reimburse the donor in full and face Expulsion from MYTIPGLASS.COM. If any of the above answers are YES, then DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT PLACING A TIP GLASS LOGO BUTTON ONE OF THOSE SITES UNLESS YOU OWN THE VIDEO YOURSELF. IF IT’S AN ADULT VIDEO OR A PORNOGRAPHIC VIDEO THAT YOU ARE THE OWNER OF, YOU CAN’T PLACE A TIP GLASS ON THE VIDEO ANYWAY. If a record company, producer or artist places a "MYTIPGLASS" logo on their video themselves, usually to test the popularity of the video or trailer, then that's fine. Otherwise, It's not worth the risk of a suit by a major artist, movie company or production company when there are tens of millions of SAFE videos that have been made for every one of the risky ones above. Amateur videos, self-made videos, self-help videos by individuals, Informational videos by individuals, how-to videos by individuals, tutoring videos, fix-it videos, singing videos, original comedy videos (Not ones made at a LIVE performance at a club or television program) , spoof videos, parody's, magic videos, public videos, kids, and even the strange and weird are just some of the areas that are open season for the most part. Also, videos made in other countries or in different languages or situations that are not common in the western world are also good places to look.

5. Someone placed a "MYTIPGLASS" logo on my video that I had on the Internet. What Can I do? Can you remove it?

The answer depends on where the video is. If the video is on THIS site and than YES we can remove it If the video was copyright protected by you or trademarked by you. If they however violated your Trademark or Copyright and uploaded the video to a third party website then we CAN'T remove the video from a third party website. Your remedy then would be to contact an Attorney who will likely send them a cease and desist letter and they'll probably remove the video all together. Then you can Place a "MYTIPGLASS" logo button on the video yourself so that they can't. If however, Your video was not copy write protected or trademark protected then it's in Cyberspace just like space debris or meteors… any one can capture them, tag them, and label them as theirs . Your video’s release into this area places it in the “Public Domain” so anyone could grab it, download it and use it, and even place a "MYTIPGLASS" Logo button on it. The good news is that you likely still have that original video on your computer. So the easiest thing to do is for YOU to place a "MYTIPGLASS" logo button on your video too and upload it onto the site but just rename it or place t in a different category with different search terms then the first one so that you can tell the difference between the two. You can also try to re-shoot the video, make it longer or shorter or change clothing, lighting, add graphics or music or a sound track, or shoot it in a different background, or add an actor, change the dialog, ad text, shimmer, gloss, sound effects, animals, shoot it in a different language, etc. and then place a "MYTIPGLASS" logo button on it and on any other video that you upload on the Internet.

6. I am a professional Motion picture producer or artist and our movie trailer, video, etc., had one of your "MYTIPGLASS" logo buttons put on our Movie trailer, video, etc. What can we do to Prevent it?

See Answer to number 4. You can sue the Bum, like we indicated earlier. www.mytipglass.com purpose is to allow folks to make money from non-copyrighted trademarked videos. We don't want anyone to violate the law. In stating this, we must also state that we cannot however REMOVE a "MYTIPGLASS" logo from a video user's video once they have placed the "MYTIPGLASS" logo on their video and sent it out into Cyberspace away from the site. If it's on this site and we learn of the violation we can remove the video The video unloader would have to physically delete the videos from all the places where he placed them thus deleting the "MYTIPGLASS" logo button too. IF WE RECEIVE NOTICE OF THE VIOLATION AND CONFIRM IT, THEN THE ADMIN AT MYTIPGLASS.COM WILL REMOVE THE VIDEO FROM OUR WEBSITE AND THE ACCOUNT SUSPENDED. That's just one solution. However, that could be time consuming, very expensive, and very tough to police. Another easier solution would be to just place a free "MYTIPGLASS" logo button on any video that you produce since they are FREE anyway. Then you won’t have to track every person down who will likely try and place a "MYTIPGLASS" logo button on it and you’ll receive tips from viewers as well, problem solved.

7. How am I paid if I use the "MYTIPGLASS" button?

You need a Pay Pal account. The payments are then split between the "Video contributor/owner" and the admin at “MyTipGlass.Com. The Admin@mytipglass.com's email address shows up whenever a TIP is received once the TIP GLASS.COM button is pressed since it is the Primary Receiver for the TIP as per the Pay Pal API Payment Scheme. Pay Pal then automatically SPLITS the payments between the embedded accounts, sending email notification to THREE different people, the Payer, the Admin@mytipglass.com and the intended recipient of the TIP as to the TIP amount. The TIP by default must be at least $2.00 since we charge a one dollar ($1.00) service charge per TIP paid. The intended TIP recipient receives the entire TIP MINUS the $1.00 TIP charge and any Pay Pal fees, regardless of how much was Tipped Tip Contributor/donor does not need a Pay Pal account to leave a TIP. They may also use credit cards or debit cards. 

8. I placed a "MYTIPGLASS" button on my videos, but I hardly received any Tips at all. Does this thing work?

There is no guarantee that you will receive any money or Tips at all just because you placed a "MYTIPGLASS" logo button on your video. The "MYTIPGLASS" logo button tells people that you would like them to consider Tipping you if they like what they see. Some people may like what they see but still not TIP you. Taste vary. Timing is important, marketing, content, and your subject matter may not necessarily be attractive to a lot of people. Please read this suggestion: TAKE TIME TO MAKE THE VIDEOS FUNNY, OR ENTERTAINING, OR INFORMATIONAL, OR INSTRUCTIONAL, OR A PARODY, OR A COMEDY, OR UNUSUAL, MAGICAL, OFFBEAT, HUMOROUS, SATIRE, OR FOR CHILDREN. REMAKE VIDEOS THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE MADE THAT ARE OF POOR QUALITY, LIGHTING OR SOUND, OR HAVE CLUTTERED BACKGROUNDS OR OFFENSIVE LYRICS. RELABEL YOUR VIDEO TITLES WITH BUZZ WORDS IN THE TITLE LIKE "THE BEST ___ ON THE INTERNET EVER", OR "INCREDIBLE ____" OR "NEVER BEFORE SEEN _____" OR "SEXY ____" ,ETC. THEN MARKET YOUR VIDEO LINKS ALL OVER THE INTERNET INCLUDING , MYSPACE, FACEBOOK, AND HIGH SCHOOL OR COLLEGE SITES AND BLOGS.

 

       THE SUGGESTIONS, RECOMMENDATIONS, AND COMMENTS MADE HEREIN ARE NOT TO INFER THAT THESE ARE THE ONLY WAYS IN WHICH YOU CAN MARKET AND DISPLAY YOUR VIDEO WITH THE "TIP GLASS" LOGO BUTTON ON IT. EXPLORE THE INTERNET. HOWEVER, ANY USE OF THE "TIP GLASS" LOGO BUTTON IN VIOLATION OF OUR TERMS OF SERVICE INCONSISTENT WITH ITS INTENDED USE'S EXPRESSED HEREIN IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED AND IN VIOLATION OF THE WWW.MYTIPGLASS.COM TRADEMARK AND COPY WRITE PROTECTION.
