    Start a Rapidshare/Megaupload/ShareCash download exchange website.

    Kind of like the Digg-exchange websites like piqqus.com among others, but you download files (restricted from 5mb - 20mb) and you earn points. To tell if someone downloaded the file, they must enter the md5 hash of the file. To point them to the rapidshare link, show it (no hyperlink) and make them Copy+Paste it into the url box.

    Sell advertising and download credits.

    Ingenius?

    1. Paying people to use your bandwidth??? Seems like a bad business model.
    2. A pain in the ass to MD5 every fie and confirm it.3
    3. No method to prevent cheating the system, sharing MD5, or looking up MD5 of file.
    4. Ad Revenue is horrible on those sites because people click download and move on. Response rate = BAD.

    Just my thoughts. Keep Trying. =)
