Question about whether it is legal.

I'm thinking about creating a porn site. I would make compilations from videos I found on other porn tube sites, download from torrents and etc.
Those videos would be about porn stars, not amateurs.
I would earn money from ads, not selling any of these videos.
What I want to ask is that legal? I see a lot of compilations on tube sites, uploaded by users. Can I get into a trouble?

Whether you take/borrow/steal someone else's videos, gif files, logos, pictures, graphics, text, music, or anything else for that matter that's not your property - it's not yours to use for fun or to make money from, whether online or not - period!

Can I ask you then how big porn sites still exist? There are a lot of videos with big porn stars, that are uploaded by other people. Why no one deletes them? Is this because actual porn stars doesn't want that or what?

I have no idea what sites you are referring to, and I really don't care to know, but those "big porn sites", as you have put it, have probably obtained permission to use what they show on their sites.

Are there some site owners out there that have scraped this kind of content and are now using it? Probably.

Have there been DMCA notices issued to scraper sites that are not paying any royalties? Probably a lot.

Do those that have gotten those notices care? Of that, I have no idea.

The question you have to ask yourself, and I'll leave you, and this thread with is this, "do you feel lucky"?

porn sites are not making money as you think. there are alots of them and the traffic is pretty much the same, i mean same ips and all that stuff. i had this type of project and to be honest i gave up after 1 year of working at it.

Plus you will receive messages to take down the emebeded videos as they are not yours to share.

Easy. You can be sued for Copyright Infringement!

I wonder if it works similarly to how compilations do on YouTube. I've read that many compilation creators on there manage to sidestep copyright violations by using clips of a shorter period than 6 seconds. Adding separate original music also makes the video transformative and therefore not necessarily a copy of full length videos online.

I don't do much work with video, and certainly none in adult videos - but let me know how you get on!

It's all over the internet that embedding youtube videos is not copyright infrigment. Do a google search and you will find that EU Court has decided this situation, as i can post that link here...
