Unless I upload my own video of a cat doing something funny, in which case I wouldn't expect to get paid, but I suppose the ads will be there to pay the site owners for upkeep of servers, etc

The server costs for a video hosting/playing site would be very expensive compared to most websites

The biggest question for me is:

Will some music company or greedy 3rd party entity claim that the music on the vids are copyrighted by them so they can monetize and place ads on your videos?

That cheeses me off especially since I paid for my licenses and use paid Royalty free tracks. Yet I have to fill out the dispute form every time since they claim they own copyrights to the tracks I paid for.

See, that's why they (and you) are wrong. If it had at least basic ad-free subscription, I'd be more than happy to pay for good service that wouldn't try to serve me ads on every step I make and wouldn't track everything I do.

Youtube totally sucks now and unless you have a decent list of people you subscribe too from a watchers perspective, then don't even bother.

and if you think you have any chance of starting a channel and getting noticed without any youtube partner help then think again.

its called "themtube" now.

Well just have to wait and see how mixbit turns out though.
