    After being on one of those websites. I thought to myself. Do they make any money off of this? Not because i wan to give it a go, but because they seem so motivated to bring these in good quality and in a timely manner. What is fueling them to do this?

    Yes they do make money.
    They get money through content locking/banner ads.

    i have seen this happen in my country, movies pirated website makes ton of money.
    All their Vids are blue rays quality with good subtitle, because most people in my country are not good with english, that's why these websites are so hot.
    and yea, damn cheap, 2.5USD/ month for unlimited movies high quality movies, super up to date as well. ;)

    Would you get caught if you used proxies?

    Yes they do. The founder of one of those websites, Kim Schmitz (he later changed his name), was accused of costing the entertainment industry over $500 million dollars because of his website. The guy has a $24 million dollar mansion and more money than he knows what to do with.

    I no i am aware of that, but i'm saying; if it really needed to be traced it could, right? If they really wanted to bring down this site, they would just get in touch with the proxy host, threaten for the original ip and there you have it.

    It helps if you aren't living in the United States. It's always so awkward when the Feds show up at the front door.

    (And if you're as big as Kim, they show up to nab you in New Zealand...)

    A good tip ( in my opinion ): They use free hosting for their movies. They upload the movies on VK.com, a russian social network. Hope this will help you, if you want to start this business.

    Are you talking about if you used a proxy to connect to the website, or the website owners themselves?

    In either case, yes, it is entirely possible to get caught even if you use proxies.
    All one has to do is get the logs from the proxy owners and can potentially track you down that way - but not always.

    If you were referring to the website itself, all they'd have to do is get in contact with the web host.
    However, depending upon where the web host is located, they may not comply with U.S. laws (offshore hosting is usually the term here).

    Yes, they are making bank off of free streaming movies in multiple ways. I myself use to run a free streaming website before all of the heat cam down on just linking to movies. The feds are locking people up for this now, and its just gonna get a whole lot worse. So I would say stay away from actually linking to any copyrighted films. Especially if you live in the US.

    Really you can make good money off of a movie site without having to break laws and link to the actual movie. Just set up a movie site and link to affiliate networks like Affiliate Buzz who are licensed to distribute movies. I think starting out they pay around $10 per free CC signup.

    I know someone who make around usd3k monthly from his movie sharing blog before he was arrested by police, fined thousands of dollar and got his site taken down. Kind of sad ending though.

    Not planning on it. Just wondering. And although the sums can seem convincing, i like the legal way much better. You enjoy it a lot more.
