    Lets say for example I want to start up a TV show streaming website. If I were to purchase an offshore server (either VPS or dedi) in the netherlands, host the TV show videos on there and stream them through my site, will I get in trouble? I currently live in the US.

    Why not just have them host your site (another site) as well? Maybe you could link the 2 together.

    That way play safe and get your goal accomplished.

    Thanks for the idea... I'll probably do the same as I have a very safe host and was already contemplating doing this on one of my other hosts. But the 'safe' one would be ..safe hehe.

    So the fact that you're actually hosting the files on your server as opposed to merely linking doesn't make a difference?
