    Hi guys and gals...

    I'm currently writing a guide on how to make money from a blackhat method for making money with porn videos. It involves copyright infringement (downloading videos from torrents for free, and reuploading them to sites) I know that in theory, someone could be prosecuted for doing this under copyright law, although it's exceedingly unlikely, considering that 99% of videos on adult tube sites are probably uploaded without distribution rights.

    My question is, should I put a disclaimer in my guide before publishing it? It's just that in the off chance that someone gets taken to court over doing this, I don't want them to be able to point a finger at me, the guy who sold them the guide encouraging them to violate copyrights.

    Is there some specific legal language I can put in there that will protect me from any liability for what people do with that info? Would "this guide is for informational purposes only" do the trick?

    Think that you cannot be held responsible for someone's action in most countries, unless you provided proofed incentive for their action. So, if I tell you that the best way to kill a man is to use a knife and cut his throat, then in a case you do that, I am innocent. If I give you the knife or pay you 5k to do it, then I am guilty.

    In your case, if you provide tools or affiliate links to anything needed for your method to succeed, then you can be proven guilty. Disclaimers cannot harm, but cannot protect you too much from possible damage. Just my 2 cents.
