    Hi Guys,

    Please help me out, i need some advice on the following topic. I am looking forward to create a unique website by hosting videos/ songs, pictures, etc. and getting revenue generated by ad's. I'm confused that how copyright policies work, what will happen if i/myself or any other user puts any copyrighted material on my site or lets say a pirated movie/ commercial song video, etc.

    Can i be getting directly sued by the material copyright owner or will he inform me before and provide me with sufficient time to remove the content from the site.

    Even i specifically wanted to talk about the pirated movie stuff and music videos etc. as i have seen many websites being blocked because they used to host pirated movies, or used to host various mp3 audio songs to be downloaded by the user or similarly bit torrent websites, which i'm sure you might be aware of. Why they being blocked.

    Looking forward for your comments.

    If they can trace you then YES they can take legal action against you. Normally they would start with a cease and desist/DMCA Takedown but they do like to prosecute when they can.

    You ask a lot of these legal questions and you keep getting the same advice.

    At the end of the day consult a lawyer/solicitor or don't get involved with this type of blackhat activity.
