That's what i was thinking too, But didn't know if sites like that exshist outside of the U.S.. Either way, i guess it still ileagal (moraly wrong) if the production company doesn't aprove; regardless if there country doesn't have any piracy laws.


Piracy laws aren't restricted by country. Case in point, Megaupload.

Which was German, and we have the same Piracy laws as the US. Plus all sites that use a .com thing fall under US law regardless which country they are based in.

If someone can come up with a legitimate pay service that shows movies that are still in the theaters please LMK ASAP as I would like to get this matter resolved. Yes as it was answered, we have netflix and redbox in the states HOWEVER those are movies that are new to DVD release, not theatrical.


No, does not exist, only for movies that are too bad to see a widespread theatrical release, have already been released on DVD or direct to DVD stuff, and then of course there are movies that are made for VOD, but those are almost dead.

Not quite.

The only reason they were able to take Megaupload down is because they had a couple of servers based in the US. Otherwise US authorities wouldn't have been able to touch them.

In that case all they would have had to do was ask the German government to help them, which they would have done.

The company was based on Hong Kong, and though it's founder was German, he lived in New Zealand. And yeah, they both helped when asked by the US Department of Justice.

True, but its all based on wether or not the country is willing to help or not. If there not, then there's nothing the U.S. can do.
