    I live in the United States and I want to sell replicas online, I'm thinking of offshore hosting in some remote country will that be enough? Or are there some other methods I don't know about to avoid this kind of problem.

    You have to keep EVERYTHING offshore and out of your name. That means business has to be incorporated offshore. Domain offshore and hosting offshore.

    You could be living in a tend if you dont want ppl knocking on your door.

    Use bulletproof hosting, like a VPS or dedi. A good choice would be what members use for spamming. You need some company that doesn't even open emails (like these guys). When using credit card, dont use your own name, pay upfront for 2 years (so you can say you never did that).

    OR

    Jv with a guy and give him 10% for him to register and stuff with his name :p (it blackhat woruld dont look at me like that)

    OP: the fact that you live in the US means you'll always be at risk. If you were living in a jurisdiction that didn't extradite to the U.S. and didn't have any civil law treaty with the U.S. AND used offshore hosting you may be in business. The fact is, you can do all that you think is enough to be anonymous when selling knock-offs but the Feds may still figure out who you are and nail you. It's not worth it IMO. Go legit - less stress and more enjoyment of the money you'll make!

    teeniegenie has a point. Look - you have, with your question itself, acknowleged that What you are planning contains elements that could get you in criminal and civil trouble; that you could get found; and especially given that you are in the US... if you can't do the time, etc.

    you can still host anywhere you want or stay with your current host, I can set you up with proxy forwarding so it looks like you are hosting "somewhere else" without all the hassle of shifting.

    PM me if you like... I can setup a demo for you.
