    I was thinking about the possibility of hosting movies and series in amazon S3. Do you know if they care?

    Are any other alternative? maybe not that cheap, but secure for this kind of files?

    I would advise having any content that could be construed as copyright infringement, especially with the volatile nature of the industry at the moment.

    Yeah I don't think Amazon would be none to happy with that, especially with the obvious copyright issues...why not just host them on an off-shore server? That would likely be your best bet.
    (the Neverlands perhaps, I read on another board someone said they actually advertise that they allow that type stuff on their servers)

    You need ofshore hosting. PM me I know great server in russia. Be prepared to pay. They will also help you for anonymous payment. There is plenty of thing you can do in this niche if you can invest some $ and time. I can give you a detailed plan if you want.
