Do I have to pay royalties to YouTube videos I link to?

I am working on an ebook with lots of links to youtube videos from other people. If I charge for the ebook am I required to pay royalties on the videos?

I'm not a lawyer, but I seriously doubt you need to pay royalties for a link to a video. If that were the case, the entire Internet would be paying royalties to everybody else all the time, which is simply not true. It's no different than somebody having a bibliography in their book. This isn't something I would worry about.
