    So few years back(4 actually) I ran several fairly busy TV shows/movies websites,

    I'm planning on coming back to the niche, however is it actually dangerous to own one of these now? I just seen movie2k.to go down(and come back as movie4k.to, movie2k.bz) and many people who I have spoken to have said to be careful with these niches.

    Is it actually that crazy these days with them, seems like the videos are not being taken down but instead the sites are being attacked?

    is offshore company and offshore hosting really the only way to stay anonymous when running one of these, or is that overdoing it?

    Anyone could shed some light on the matter?

    P.S. I'm not planning to host the videos, but do something along the lines of 1channel.ch

    If they want to take you down, they will. It doesn't matter where you host, sites like movie2k.to and kino.to were generating millions before they were taken down, so if you've got a way to make the money disappear, feel free to do it. For some it could be worth sitting in jail for 5-10 years and then to come out to have fun with the millions.

    yes, it is risky. today many people are getting hit just for posting links to videos.
