    If someone makes money from copyrighted content, would they have to take any precautions when reporting their taxes?

    In what scenario would anyone know that copyrighted material was the source of revenue?

    I'd suggest legitimizing your business some. Just like any other blackhat method, if you can show a legit business model, you could sweep your questionable activity in with your whitehat activity. :)
