Test case:
I shoot hobby footage and post it on YouTube. If I allow ads to appear on it, and thereby get even a tiny amount of income from every click, have I crossed the line?

Technically, yes, it is commercial use. Practically, I doubt if anyone would ever come after you for it. I just received my 333 Exemption a few weeks ago.

Depends on what the judge says at the end of the trial.

Technically yes, but since it is indirect income it is in the gray area and should be fine.
