    Not really sure where to post this so sorry if its in the wrong spot. So i kind of jumped into making some movie sites that will be streaming upcoming movies like iron man 2 and a few others with ************** surveys before they can watch. I didn't really check into the legality of it before i did. My question is how much trouble can i get into for having sites like these...or if they will even bother with me since i am not hosting the movies just streaming them. Any advice would be appreciated. thanks.

    If you aren't hosting the movies you should be ok.

    hi, depends of your country of residence - the law is different. in the main case you'll have a lot of troubles but you can use a server in other country less restrictive like hmmm... Norway. But how do you plan to earn money from this website - you have to be absolutely anonymous: it is stupid to host everything abroad but to use local mobile service company for SMS payments :laugh:

    PS depends of the country law you may have troubles even if you do not host the movies - in EU the copyright law is really strong and i'll not take my chances just like that

    Worst things that could happen is that you get a C&D from a company like Universal or Warner Bros, if you don't actually host the videos yourself that is.
