After your adsense is ready, you click the start monetizing my video link and there should be a $ sign next to each video. There's a form that asks if all the content is your own. Make sure to be honest, especially now with their content ID matching.
As for the montages, I see 2 problems with them:
1. The video is owned by the NHL, MSG, or NBC (depending)
2. Unless the music is public domain, you made it, or you can prove you have permission to use it, you won't get paid for it either.
The montages will obviously be allowed to be up though. You just don't get any $ from that.
So despite it having a $ sign say..next to one of my parody "history will be made" videos, theres no point in trying to monetize it since i have no right to it, correct?
I actually found my way to the adsense site. I'm logged in now but apperently i'm supposed to make an "ad unit" and i have NO CLUE how to do that
It shows no earnings and all that yada yada but i dont see anything about having to give my tax info or such
