    Lets see, don't use a US registrar and US host. And its virtually impossible for anyone agency to take your site offline.

    Are people really surprised these sites are being shut down due to the content they were serving? It was only a matter of time.

    No I think most people were surprised that people were using US based advertising companies, US servers and US hosts to further these illegal acts.

    In the US at least you have contributory copyright infrigement and even if you say "oh but... I was only linking to the material, it wasn't on my site" you still are at fault because you contributed toward the ability for the infrigement to occur. It's no surprise that a website full of movies, where the owners are getting paid from US ad companies, could be taken down at any time.

    But its more like that kids arcade game 'wack a mole', where the US government tipped their hat. Took out a couple websites, sent a message. So what's going to occur next. Is the larger players are going to make sure they have an international registrar with laws that are in their favor. A non US dns or series of dns servers, and international hosts.

    And lets see, the registrar is drumroll please... Network Solutions.

    So instead of going with an actual registrar in china, they used a rebiller basically. I figure Mr. Fed will go back to the judge and get another warrent signed off for control of this one as well.

    I have a good friend working with this niche who i think its using hosting and registration from US but he`s from a different country? ( inside europe ).
    What can i tell him about this ? He`s also quite old and he`s doing this as a hobby... so there is a high % rate that he will quit if he finds out that he can get jailed.

    What you guys are witnessing is the changes the affiliate marketing industry is going through.

    No more credit reports, rebills, now incentivizing movie sites.

    I was wondering, if it would matter if I move my current domain to an offshore domain registrar ?

    Do you think DVD sales will surge a little?
    Do you think hit and run single movie pages will do?

    I think hosting mostly matters for the small guys seeing as no one is going to get a warrant unless you get big - unless you're big :prof01:
