The biggest question on the minds of most online video content creators is: how do I make money? Last year, writers in Hollywood went on strike against movie studios and television broadcasters, in part because they demanded a share of revenue generated by the digital media they helped to create. Meanwhile, the largest video site in the country, YouTube, barely pays its content producers. Some venture capitalists sense an opportunity and are moving south from Silicon Valley to create new entertainment companies that in many instances put the writers and directors and actors in control.

At Streaming Media East, taking place May 19-21, 2008, a session titled "Online Video: Should Content Creators Get a Cut?" will look at the future of the user-generated online video business model and analyze whether that future might include payment of significance to the content creators. Panelists include: Eric Rosser Eldon, VentureBeat.com; Gordon Castle, Senior VP of Strategic Digital Systems Research, Turner Broadcasting; Justin Day, co-founder, CTO, blip.tv; Bobby Tulsiani, Analyst, Media & internet Video, Jupiter Research; and Kelly Rodrigues, CEO, Blowtorch Entertainment.
