The good news is that they will be sharing the profits with the creators of these viral darlings. The bad news will likely come when you find out that funny video of your grandma farting only got you five dollars despite a hundred-thousand hits.
The worse news may come when you find yourself with a nice pile of cash for a video you “created” by filming your friends doing something stupid, and said friends come calling for their cut.
Just hope that none of your friends join SAG and bring that hailstorm of trouble your way.
