    Completely hypothetical, but how illegal is it to run a site with new dvd rips (basically copyrighted material) from various torrent sites?

    What are the consequences? I see a ton of video sites with new shows, but how are they not reported immediately?

    Thanks!

    As illegal as it can get. I guess most sites are just hosted overseas with companies that shit on DMCA requests.

    i suppose you just get your site closed down and if you are bad enuff goto jail loads of research i suppose would have to research it well. Over in the uk they are blocking the torrent sites its just a cat a mouse game.

    Sketchy for sure.
    Some people load all of their videos in a cloud storage, share to family and friends.

    I wouldn't put my butt on the line to be the cool kid.
    They will forget who you are when the po-po knocks on the door.

    Extremely illegal and you need to protect yourself in great measure since they will hunt you down.
