I know Zappp created UG, either with or without the help of others (that I don't know), but does he own the website? If he doesn't, then who does?

Does UG make it's money from sources other than advertising and promotions?

I've just been wondering these things lately.

well if he created the site, then he obviously has to put money into it, thus making him the owner and creator. and UG does make money from advertisments, hence why they're there.

Zappp is he owner. He pays for the site hosting, bandwidth, etc, but he gets some income from the advertisements. And he also pays for the ROMS music licence thing. He runs the site with help from people like Dyuah (sp?) who is the tab master, and a few others.

The state owns the site.

Remember, when you download tabs from UG, you're downloading communism!

Well, I already know that UG makes money from ads. I was wondering where else is the income generated from. Zappp might be the creator, but he doesn't have to be the owner.

AdamDK- thanks.

Now I guess my question is How much does it cost to run UG annually? A lot of work goes in to advertising and website updates, promotions, contests, etc. I'd hope all the work pays off well enough to fund the site.

Yeah, Zappp owns the site.

He has about 12 staff in the Russian office.

I've always imagined UG having like a big corporate building as UG Headquarters. It would have a conference room and everything, with a snack machine in the hall, and a fat janitor dude who refuses to help the n00bs get their stuck candy out.

jesus owns UG obviously. using his russian henchmen to pretend they're in charge, when really they're pawns in his diabolical scheme to make us all buddhists. because as we know, god is a buddhist.
