    When I was about to register a biz domain name for a movie site with ads
    I had to agree the below statement

    ".biz top level domains (TLD) are reserved for genuine business or commercial use only. Registering a .biz domain name solely for the purpose of compensation (by selling, or leasing) or using the domain name exclusively for personal, non-commercial purposes or the expression of non-commercial ideas is strictly forbidden. "

    So am I allowed to register the biz domain for my purpose?

    You can register a .biz domain for anything. Don't listen to their mumbo jumbo

    Sure there are a lot of .biz sites out there.
    In addition there are many sites that have in their domain the word "google" or "facebook" etc.
    This does not mean that they are allowed to do this. G or Fb may obligate them to shut down their sites.

    I'm asking cos I don't want to loose my domain and all the traffic if one day someone discovers that my biz site
    does not meet the requirements of .biz domain registration.

    I've seen a lot of movie sites on .biz, I think you have no reason to worry. The only thing you should worry about is if your visitors will like the name of the site.

    Your site is for commercial use right? Making money from ads, then its surely OK!

    Your movie site will be fine using that extension. I have many .biz domains in my network of linked sites, but like stated before it's not the best recommended extension for your main/money site. I have seen some keyword rich .biz domains sell for some high coin though. Just don't expect easy results if your looking move up in G-pages without some extra time and resources.
