One of YouTube's most prolific creators has taken his latest show, Oscar's Hotel, to Vimeo where it is available to download for $10. With high production values and a partnership with Jim Henson studios, P.J. Liguori recently had to create a YouTube video asking his users not to pirate his show and candidly explaining what they are paying for when they fork over their $10.

“The really ironic thing is, if I was to make [this series] free, everything that you’d want from Oscar’s Hotel wouldn’t exist,” he says. “It wouldn’t exist because it would have had to have been sponsored by a brand… Making it paid-for content gives us the freedom to do something amazing.”
