    Hello, I'm about to create fake movie site. It will look like you can watch movies there online streaming, but you cannot. Problem is that I still do not know if its illegal or not. Its on private registered domain, but I think if they really wanted they can still find me. Even now I get DMCA on my PPD site and they are removing my files which are complete bulls.it, its just file with name password and nothing in it, but they still delete it. So there will not be a single copyrighted movie ever, just name of the movie and line that states you can watch it there even if you cannot. So what do thing, is that illegal?

    Might not be illegal, but I bet you will get DMCA'd away fast.

    Ok so I will probably not do it, but if this is illegal, how for example fake serial keygens are legal? Or all those thousands guys who are spamming youtube with this every day are in fact doing something illegal?

    Yes. It is completely illegal as you are hurting the company's name by deceiving "innocent" users that they offer "free" content of some sort. For example: User "A" goes to your site and complains to user "B" how 20th century fox is bullshit, because they claim to have movies online, but in fact they don't. Of course user "B" won't know the whole story that user "A" is a moron visiting your website and not the official one.

    What you should be asking is "are they going to sue me". No, worst case scenario they will ask you to hand them your domain (if it has their trademark) and delete the content.

    If you want to really be safe you can go for offshore hosting and laugh at their (if any) e-mails.

    It's illegal as well, that's why some niche get copyright claim and the video was taken down.

    anyway maybe you can investigate http://www.movie4k.to/ on how they build there website.

    Without any doubt, Yeah, they're illegal.

    But if you could cover yourself up, go with a offshore host which ignore DMCA and you're good to go.

    yep, the legit movie streaming websites will start losing customers so they are probably the first people who wants to shut those websites down
