Porn.com one of the most valued domains in adult and internet went to a new business model, they pull the videos form other sites, I have my ideas but want to hear what others have to say before saying mine.

What are the pros and cons of doing this for a tube site?

They have to be making money why else stick to the tube scrapping model.

Porn.com is a much better site than sex.com in my opinion

If every tube wants to scrape the content that reduces the available content online, I am not in favor of that idea.

True :idea: and when they open the link the ads on the video are not their own.

If the income was not to their expectations then surely they would have changed the site design.

Scraping content is not what a real pot hub competitor is

Who is responsible for the 2257 paperwork and compliance if you are pulling the videos off another site?

Let me give my non-legal answer. You can not serve illegal content, just because it is not hosted on your site or domain it does not release you from liability. If that was not the case there is nothing stopping people registering domains in false names, uploading illegal content to that domain/site and then scrapping it or hot linking it.

But the videos aren't served from porn.com. The pages containing the videos are not on porn.com and the videos are not hotlinked nor in an iframe nor encased in the site in any other way. No different from other links. If you exchange links with another site, you're not responsible for 2257 docs for the site you're linking to, right? However, they would be responsible for 2257 as it pertains to the thumbs.

I'm not sure of the legalities as I said I am not an attorney, but just thinking out loud about what if you register a domain, upload videos to it, and link to those off another site, wouldn't that make you responsible for the content you link to. Just thinking not 100% sure.

Well, you would be responsible for the site you're linking from since that is your domain as well.

Also, if you encase the video within your site (via hotlink, iframe, script, etc), you would be responsible on that domain as well. Or at least you were the last time I read 2257 a bunch of years ago. There had been pending legislation and I haven't cared enough to keep up with it.

Porn.com does not encase the videos into their site, nor do they own the sites they are linking to.

Example: you have links on sponsorchat to nude.com. Does that make you responsible for any of the content on the page your link points to on nude.com?

I follow your logic and now I get it, I guess if you do not own the domain where the illegal content is uploaded to and you do not embed that content on your site then you should be fine. Well that is my way of seeing it.
