    I hope this is the appropriate place to post this.
    I haven't found a better suited sub-forum.

    My question is, is it legal to own a site that delivers pornographic content?
    What if the content is scraped from other sites? Are there any copyright rules I need to know about?

    And if that is illegal, what about a site that doesn't host the content itself, but just has links to other sites where you can see the content?

    Owning a Porn site is legal in some countries and illegal in some. Where as sharing copyright content is illegal. However you can share content which is not copyright protected. I hope, you got your answers. )

    Thank you guys! Your answers cleared up alot of my doubts.

    One more thing about copyright law though:
    Let's say I scrape some pictures from a video on some site that I'm not affiliated with and post that picture on my site (like a preview), but when people try to watch the video I redirect them to the site I scraped the pictures from.
    Would that still be illegal?

    It's illegal to host porn in Utah and if your server is there then it's illegal. So don't use Bluehost to host your site, they will ban your account.

    Actually it is legal there, as it would violate the First Amendment if its not obscene porn, and the fact that Utah has the highest % of searches of porn per capita, you have proof that if its a normal porn site not scat,bdsm etc. Then you would easily beat the state of Utah in Court if they were stupid enough to forget the Supreme Court's ruling on porn a few decades ago.

    Lord people that don't how the porn industry works. it is legal to host sponsor's content, when your blog is developed make a 2257 page and add in the 2557 page that the content is owned by such and such. if you shot the porn yourself, the model must be 18, have a valid id, and sign a model release to be on your site.

    with.so much free porn, there is no need to rip videos when you get download a shit ton from the sponsor anyways. just be sure to get content that is uniqur because porn is very saturated. if you need help with niche hit me up.

    if you.need adult keywords go to xxxinsights and.look up keywords.

    host your sites on hostgator and you will be fine.

    hit.me up If.you need help

    When I talked to them on the phone after this message they told me it was illegal to host adult content in Utah. I moved the content to a different hosting company that had servers in Michigan.

    I don't know if they've changed their ToS but I wouldn't bother using Bluehost unless you have to at first. This email is from January 31 2011.

    Edit:

    I decided to read their ToS since Roparadise said he did and said "I just read their TOS, Its ok as long as your not hosting child porn."

    Check section 11 part 03
    http://www.bluehost.com/cgi/info/terms.html

    Edit 2:

    If you're still wondering or think I'm wrong.

    Man, Utah needs to be kicked out of the U.S. they are to fucked up, They hate on porn and go after people making it, but they like to watch porn more than any other state.
