    Welcome to BAF lovebirds143. Thank you for posting your questions.

    I think you are on a safe side since your site only contain links to these downloads. And you are not hosting these files.
    Basically, doing so is still illegal in the law. They are copyrighted items that are shared or distributed illegally.

    But there are sites that still gets away with it.

    if you don't steal but watch out for the police think that is illegal.

    if you pick the lock open for them. hum perhaps giving a linky could be say opening an E-door?

    Fergal is right. It will be dangerous for your site if you will host it on a US-based host.
    It will definitely be illegal.

    What are you talking about?:confused:

    Flash games are okay as long as you have the rights to share or publish these games on your site. :)

    Their servers could be located in a country that allows such things.

    lovebirds143 why do you want to create a site that gets around the law in some way and helps to facilitate illegal activity? Would it not be easier and more satisfying for you to do something that is more productive and within the bounds of the law?

    I agree with Fergal. It's much better to do something allowable by law to have a more enjoyable and productive site.

    If you do plan to make such a forum, offshore hosting would be your best bet, and safest, in terms of US onshore hosting.
