    Hello,

    i am a long time reader and first time poster.... i am blogger and own a hip hop blog for the past few years.

    i just decided to make a new blog that will be a sort of tv streaming site....

    i know there are thousands of sites tv site but i think mine is a good idea... and i have not seen it with the bigger sites like project free and let me watch... as most sites dont even have the shows i will be adding....

    my site will focus on the older shows such as the cosby show, the wayans bros, king of queens, fresh prince, etc... most of the episodes are on you tube, pot locker, or daily motion... so it is very easy to embed them in to the blog... i have already started the blog and have made a list of the tv shows i want to add and the list is already 50 tv shows deep and i know there are at least 100 shows i wanna add....

    i plan to promote this site thru you tube... as most of the shows are on on you tube and they all have thousands of views, i will post comments to link to my site and use my 50 fake accounts to vote the comment to the number 1 spot... and i will also work out deals with the people that uploaded the videos to add my site link in there description... also i will use twitter with tweetadder and search for targeted follows

    i did my keyword research and the keywords i will use get about 250,000 searches a month

    im not trying to get rich from this blog... i am trying to set up a quality blog farm with 5 to 6 blogs and think this is a very good idea...

    its noting new as all the videos are on youtube, but they are all scattered with no sort of order... and my site will also offer descriptions and other info... plus i think hey if a person likes the cosby show.. chances are they will wanna check out a different world, and if they like that then hey they may like the Bernie mac show...

    basically my questions are...

    1. is this a dumb idea
    2. will i have to worry about feds? all the shows a re canceled and i am only embedding the videos not hosting.. i wont add any tv shows that are still in production
    2. since most of the videos will be on youtube... will adsense ban my account since they dont like copyrighted material?
    3. should i use adbrite or are there other ways to make money? i dont wanna use a CPA until i build up a good fan base and get ranked in google, etc.. plus i dont think i like CPA's as i am more into giving a quality service and not milking the blog... i personally would never use a site where i hate to do surveys every time i wanted to watch one show... and i want people to share my site and use it and not be scared away..


    thx alot and hopefully someone will relpy :D

    I'm note sure about what blogspots TOS are when it comes to copyrighted material and stuff like that. Personally I think if u going to be monetizing a site and spending your hard sweat on creating the site and content and all of that then it's prob a good idea to host the site urself. That way u not a risk of the blogspot shutting down ur site... I mean if the site takes of and u start making some $$ with it.. what happens after 1 or 2 months if blogpspot decides to take u site down? ....

    Thx for your comment.. . Thats all ways a risk with blogger... if my site takes off I will move to my own hosting at wordpress or something...

    And also it does not violate the TOS

    It's legal to embed YouTube videos. The responsibility for copyright lies with the YouTube uploader, not with bloggers.

    Even if you host your own site, your host can still shut it down.

    It's better not getting involved in the copyright biz. Serious headache.

    Alot of DMCA complaints to the blogger and in the end blogger will delete your blog.
