    Hi there,

    Planning on starting a free porn forum along the lines of planetsuzy and phun. I want to include a section for people to post streaming links as well.

    Is a forum like this technically illegal? Can I be pursued by the big porn companies? Should I incorporate in a different country?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated, Thanks!

    If you are sharing illegal downloads of any kind it is illegal. I know of forum owners that have been pursued by porn companies and shut down.

    I'm curious to know why do you want to start one? It is a tremendous amount of work and bum ass pay.

    They payoff can be quite good if you know how to properly monetize the traffic.

    How do the big boys like planetsuzy and phun stay alive for so long then? They must be evading legal action somehow....

    if you live in the U.S., you must have proof of the age of any models that are nude or are performing sexual acts. you can get hit with some big fines if you don't. the law was passed a few years ago, you better look into it

    18 U.S.C. 2257

    This is the law.

    It contradicts the UK data protection act and comes with a mandatory jail term if you break it.

    My advice is don't bother.

    As for "suzy" off planetsuzy the dumb fuck that owns that site left his/her home address on the whois details. Anything they've achieved is a fluke nothing more, the admin are thick as shit.
