    Just wanted to make sure that the owners of the websites were being money fueled. I never saw an ads or anything that seemed like they were locking content or anything of the sort.

    So, i wondered if they were doing it to seek revenge to certain people or industries. Maybe they were turned down actors... lol who knows. Just wanted to know why?

    I thought they could not monetize it since it is highly illegal.

    As you stated, there are many reasons why people make sites like that.
    Surprisingly, there are actually a lot of people that make sites like that (and pirated content in general) just to freely share it. Not everyone is an internet marketer :)

    Will never understand doing something illegal for free.

    Makes a lot of sense, but you know there are sites with user submitted links and they do fine legally. this is a safer cover.

    Is it illegal to create a site that is a directory of sites that stream movies? After all, your not actually doing anything illegal, kinda not really. I think.
