I saw a method for setting up a site to watch movies online for free but is it illegal to do so? The method revolves around finding the movies that others have already posted online to sites like megavideo.com, dailymotion.com, etc. Then you either embed the video player on a page or give them a link to the movie on the actual site. You do not host the movie or upload the movie to any site yourself, just simply find it and promote it. If I go through with this can I get in trouble for having a site like this even if I don't upload the movie or host the movie myself?
