    This might be a stupid question to ask, but how illegal is blackhat? The general idea you can get from people answering is that it's legal, but hated by google. But is it really? With just a bit of search, you can find out that everything on the internet is copyrighted, from million-dollar videos to unvisited instagram pics. Then, what is the deal with doing stuff like re-uploading youtube videos, pictures, videos, etc? I see four options here. Either:
    -nobody cares, no jail
    -somebody cares, so if you are unlucky you get persecuted but nobody cares about that chance
    -people care, but those who do blackhat hide behind VPN and proxies
    -i am totally wrong
    It wouldn't probably be such a big problem if it was just rehosting without profit, but if you make money off "scamming" people, isn't that considered fraud?
    Might be a noob question, so excuse me.

    It's about bending rules ( even breaking rules ) but not doing anything illegal.

    My mate Charlie ended up doing time but he was that big he was set up by the FBI and Men in Black. Think he knew too much.

    As long as it is on clearnet it's not that scary . There's a lot of stuff going on much dangerous than re-uploading youtube videos .

    I've only come across 1 method on this site that was so damn blackhat that it made me nervous. In general though most are breaking terms of service agreements not the law.
