    I'm considering several different niches right now. One of them is softcore porn. However, I'm concerned about DMCA complaints. What I would do is just have a simple blog where I post a few pictures everyday. I could still promote the original site (such as Twisty's or MetArt), and even link to them without asking to be an affiliate-nobody pays for porn anymore. Still, that probably doesn't go far in deterring and copyright complaints. But, if I just found "gallery sites" that promote those sites anyway and simply used those pictures, maybe it would be okay because I wouldn't be using anything that their affiliates weren't-in other words I wouldn't be posting a ton of other content they didn't want out there for free.

    I want to know how common it is to actually get a complaint and have your site taken down, either way. It seems like it'd be a ridiculously easy niche to work in every day; there's pretty much no thought involved in it. But if this is just too risky then there's no point in even doing it.

    Offshore hosting is the way you need to go if you are doing anything that is questionable in terms of copyright. The porn industry are some of the biggest funders of anti-piracy lobbying groups, they have the most to lose from piracy so many sites take it quite seriously. Some of the older content they will probs care less about and won't take much action.

    Huge amount of content in the niche which has been ripped off, at first sites wont care about your site. Could make out that content is user generated and then just pull it down if anyone makes a DMCA against that particular page etc.

    Based on your theory, nobody pays for porn anymore; why would you want to get into the porn niche?

    yeah, who still pays for porn? I did however see a guy making a butt load of $ leveraging a porn site to advertisers on fiverr though.

    Porn is still profitable, there wouldn't be so many companies producing it and raking in otherwise.

    And no, just because you use something that is available publicly because an affiliate was granted consent, doesn't entitle you to rip and share the same content. If you stated that all materials were thought to have been of public domain, and the web site operator will comply immediately upon request with all DMCA complaints, you'd probably stay out of trouble for the most part.

    The main issue would be when you are ripping images from the same source, that you know damn well aren't personal pictures uploaded by individuals. It'd be pretty obvious you had no intention of due diligence. It would go from a DMCA removal request, to a liabilities\loss of profit issue.

    Why not just sign up as an affiliate?
