I wouldn't say that most video sites 'give nothing back to creators'. They  
are after all providing storage and bandwidth without requiring financial  

I'll just call bullshit on the rhetoric above. The interesting question  
here is: What is the split? How large a percentage goes to Revver and how  
much does the creator get? I suspect it's Revver who gains more than with  
usual video sites, and the added value for the creator is insignificant  
compared to the downside of having ads displayed.
