    Hi, I've been wanting to start a porn tube site (don't judge me :p)

    i've seen plugins where porn is taken from porn sites and posted straight to your site, but I'd like to instead choose the videos myself so i'm sure they fit my niche. Any suggestions for how i might do this?

    I've heard you can use any porn video as long as you add an option for users to upload their own porn videos and of course the DMCA (because you can just say a random user uploaded the video off youporn/pornhub illegally and not you, which can then get taken down without you getting sued etc) is this correct?

    Thanks a lot guys.

    OP, it seems everybody and their uncle are starting tube sites, seems pretty overcrowded to me but can be profitable if you are catering for a specialized niche.

    The following articles are very interesting, although they do not answer your questions:
    http://www.businessinsider.com/the-...g-ripped-apart-by-tube-site-litigation-2012-7
    http://freakonomics.com/2010/05/05/copyrighting-porn-a-guest-post/
    http://www.technologyreview.com/review/420419/down-the-tubes/

    As for the legalities of hosting a Tube site, I would suggest consulting one of the many Adult Webmaster forums or alternatively just start the site and deal with issues as they arise.

    Why would you start a tube? there are tons of them out there and the big dogs are getting the whole traffic!

    You just go to the big tubes and try to make cash from the people already there.

    More easy and more profitable, and zero loss.

    Ofcourse not illegal. You can do, any body can do. Top porn tubes are owned by the same owner of top paid porn sites imo. Well its all how you cater dmca complaints. Take down the copyrighted stuff without objection and you are good to go. You must put usc copyright claim agreement, a dmca form and proper stuffs on the page. But the main issue is unless u know how to monetize, starting a tube is worthless.

    That's true, there's a cartel in the porn business.

    But it's not always legal. You need to host the sites in a country where it's fine to host porn content and also face copyright complaints from pirated porn that often ends up in these tube sites.

    That is not true at all.Pornhub,youporn,tube8,keezmovies owned by manwin,but plenty of independent huge tubes (1mil+ unique/day) like xhamster,hardsextube,redtube,yobt,motherless,pornerbros etc

    -If you want to host you content in a contry where porn is illegal,you wold be hosting in a backwards shithole and get shit hosting.

    -Many of the tubes are legal,and use sponsor promo content or buy/licence non-exclusive content.Its pretty cheap nowdays,you can fill a site with legal content for $500-$800

    First you acknowledge there is a cartel of the largest sites, then you say what I said is not true "at all". Go figure.

    Big companies are not cartels.Manwin runs a 100% legit business.Do you consider google inc. a cartel?They own google search,youtube,blogger etc..

    Manwin is legit, but the truth is they hold more than 50% of all adult traffic.

    Just guess how many of the top tube sites belong to them. It's hard to compete with big guys these days.

    Anyhow, it's still a multibillion dollar industry and you may get your own slice of it..

    Try and you will see how it works for your tube site ;)

    no, they don't. Their previous owner Fabian is pending various trials and will probably go to prison for long time. He deserves it. Not for doin adult, but for destroying that business.

    Just make sure you host the site in a country that views porn as legal entertainment.
