    As per the title.

    or is the risk about the same as reuploading porn videos, just with images instead.

    Depends on the volume.
    If you're going to spam the hell outta it, make sure you're using VPS's, and do not use any of your real info (if possible), also don't login from your personal email accounts or anything like that.
    Working behind a VPN, would make it also harder to track you down, but still not impossible.

    Are you reposting with your site as the source link but still attributing the original copyright? Or are you removing watermarks/adding your own to make it seem as though the content is originally yours. The former might result in stuff getting taken down, but I doubt it'd be any thing worth starting a lawsuit over. The latter, though, would be a little more egregious and the original copyright owner might go after you for it if you're doing it enough.

    If you are reasonably successful, may be. If not, why do it

    Yes the latter.

    Thats what makes me paranoid about watermarks cos your effectively putting up a flag to the world saying look at my domain here i am!

    I have whois enabled and also fake details underneath, but wonder how motivated someone would be to shut me down.

    It depends on the type of content, who "owns" it, what country they are from and what country you are from. Certain photogs and adult studios are way more protective of their content than others.

    A lot of this will also come down to your host. If your host is in the U.S., they'll most likely respect any DMCA requests by forwarding to you, and if you don't comply, they'll shut you down. Also, whois protection isn't magic. Your registrar still sends your info to ICANN, and I'd imagine that if someone really wanted, they could subpoena them for your contact information in order to serve you with papers. Again, this depends *heavily* on how big you're going. Unless you're trying to make a big business out of this, that's unlikely to happen.

    Seriously W130SN how are you doing this?

    You should really get into IT security or some IT detective.

    EDIT: A little challenge if you want to do it, find everything you can about me and PM me your findings? :)
