Hey guys, first post here ! I'm a pretty good developer (just quit my day job in an algo trading firm) and I'd like to get into the business of making/monetising a site now I have some spare time. I never made more than toy projects on the web but I should be able to learn the technical side quickly. Also I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to making money on Internet. My first naive idea would be to make a site like xvideos (a personal favourite of mine) and start it by automating the ripping of videos and comments from already established sites. Then learn the seo/linking side of things and get it out there. I imagine I'd automate all that on virtual machines I'll rent. Few questions: 1) How is it a bad idea actually ? Am I likely to get sued by the studios/xvideos like sites when my site gets famous ? 2) Is porn copyrightable ? I read somewhere that it's not because it's obscene ? But it's probably wrong I imagine ? 3) If it's a bad idea, what other strategies/website types should I investigate to leverage my programming skills ? I'm not looking to be spoon fed, just given some directions to investigate. I've read a ton of great ideas on this site, but I'm not sure which ones would be most appropriate for me. Thanks!
