    Legal issues with DDL Sites and hosts that allow it?


    I know of a friend that owns a DDL or otherwise known as Warez linking site.
    Whats the legal consequences of this to the owner in the UK (but site hosted offshore).

    Also where would be the best place to host such sites? I was told its best in Europe

    I was going to launch a nfo site that linked to places to buy, but did not link directly to torrents or sites that hosted the stuff, but I have been reluctant because of legal issues, so I would be curious on where the line is drawn as well.

    The best bet is to not get involved with illegal activities. There have been cases where in the United States the FBI will go after people hosting offshore doing illegal activities. Better safe then sorry, its not worth ruining your life over.
