    Hi guys!

    I want to keep this as short as possible, so. Is it illegal to own a porn tube site with full videos from torrents? The videos are not hosted on the website but on different video streaming websites. They are just embeded on the site via iframe. Please let me know :D

    It is not illegal to have such website in most countries but if they find out you are the one uploading those movies from torrent, you can get in trouble since it's piracy.

    Legal or not, I'd go for offshore hosting. Just in case.

    This should be ok, the one in troubles is the one who uploaded it and the one who hosts it(but even then they almost never are, worst case they just tell them to delete it from the server and not do it again). Some countries laws are not clear about this, but there are thousands tube sites with embedded porn videos and it does not seem they have any legal problems. I had such site for many years without any issues. Only thing I would think about is if such tube site can make you any money, I would focus on something different, but its up to you, if you have good business plan..

    What about doing a TV site in the US? Surely that will get you fucked by the law?

    If you mean to create a website that you will publish shows that you download from torrent, yes you will get DMCA's but an offshore hosting+domain can solve that.

    But don't the authorities not really care about piracy of porn(in fact in some places it may not even be copyrighted)? Even in countries where porn is legal its still looked down upon by the government and in some countries its hard for those in the industry to do banking.
