    I'm not sure about illegal but it is really tough to find a CPA network that is cool with that. It is definitely illegal if you host it. If you cloak your traffic and use an offshore host you should be fine!

    There isn't really a law for your first question but make sure you redirect them to the hosts website and don't embed it on your site.

    If the site you redirect them to doesn't have the movie then its just unethical and most of the times people will just consider your site as spam and for a movie site returning visitors are a HUGE bonus. Back in the days when i had a movie site 30% of my visitors are returning ones.

    Hope i helped you man. Just make sure you dont embed any movies on your webpage.

    Good luck brother
