    Hi there,

    I just build a streaming movie site.
    Half of my movies are new movies that just showing in cinema.

    My questions is how my site stays under the radar and I'm not being sued by Warner Brothers or Columbia Pictures. How can I promote my site the safe way?

    Any blackhat idea would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    hmmm... i dunno how you would promote this in a "safe way"
    maybe try post shit on torrent sites (people who are looking for a movie on a torrent site are already not to keen on paying). maybe post like a 30 clip of the movie with a watermark link to your site on it?

    there are ways to do this legally, i have no idea how, but look at sites like spotify (thats with music). im sure if you could set up a deal with the movie companies where they make millions of of your site, they will be down with it

    you'll get sued if you are in a country they can legally take you to court.

    NO way you can be safe. If they want to sue you...then its your bad luck. just don't make your site very popular..Make lots of site with minimum popularity

    Embedding them from other sites is probably the safest way to go about it. If you host it yourself, you're asking for trouble

    Even if you embed from other sites, or merely link to other sites, you're still liable for contributory copyright infringement. Somewhat recent case law has proven this.

    Yup that has been the argument that many torrent trackers have used and they have failed. I don't think you would last long once you caught their attention.

    Hey joe0074 I'm in the same position: I recently launched a site and put movies like District 9 onto it, way I market is just using torrents and commenting on file sharing sites, still worried but with the low number of visitors I'm getting I doubt the companies will be that bothered: By the way how are you monetising your site? I'm experimenting with a number of methods including CP*lead

    You can add a disclaimer in the description text box

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    "Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use"

    =======================================

    This in many cases will help not to get your video removed, but of course is not a guaranteed safeguard

    But it is one approach that has worked well on many videos
